US FBO chain Atlantic Aviation is making SAF available at its Aspen-Pitkin County airport FBO in Aspen, Colorado.
With support from Aspen-Pitkin County airport, AvFuel Corporation and Neste Corporation, Atlantic sees the introduction of SAF at Aspen as a major milestone in its ongoing work to further the environmental and community values highlighted during its Vision process.
“The regular availability of SAF at ASE represents the next step in our commitment to renewable energy and the reduction of carbon emissions by the aviation industry,” says Jay Hamby, senior VP of Atlantic Aviation. “The integration of SAF into our operations at ASE is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 800,000 pounds annually."
The delivery of SAF is the latest commitment in a comprehensive environmental, social and corporate governance programme at Atlantic Aviation. SAF follows Atlantic's ongoing investment in LED technology, use of electric ground support equipment and efforts to reduce its consumption of plastic and paper consumables. This also includes the recent introduction of SAF and the complete replacement of traditional fossil-based diesel with renewable diesel for ground support equipment at Atlantic's Los Angeles International FBO.
