Le Bourget SAF furthers Jetex sustainability drive
The use of SAF is a major focus for Jetex and forms part of the company's commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 through a series of short, medium and long-term initiatives, including electric trucks.
SAF gives a reduction of up to 90 per cent in carbon emissions over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to the traditional jet fuel it replaces.

Jetex has started to offer SAF produced by TotalEnergies in France, made from used cooking oil at its Paris Le Bourget airport FBO.

SAF gives a reduction of up to 90 per cent in carbon emissions over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to the traditional jet fuel it replaces and complies with RED sustainability criteria. Fuelling at Jetex Le Bourget, Paris, is facilitated by an electric refuelling truck, which further reduces the carbon footprint of the operation.

“We take pride in being part of the aviation community that has yet again proven to be accountable and responsible, taking a positive step towards reducing carbon emissions. Jetex has reiterated its stance towards this goal by making it easier for customers to avail SAF at one of its FBO bases at Paris Le Bourget. As a one-stop shop aviation service provider, we are pleased to be able to include SAF arrangements as part of our world-class services for customers looking to meet the challenge of carbon neutrality,” comments Sufiyan Asif, director of fuel at Jetex.

Progressing the development and commercial deployment of SAF is crucial to decarbonising the aviation industry. According to IATA, more than 100 million litres of SAF will be produced in 2021. The use of SAF is a major focus for Jetex and forms part of the company's commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 through a series of short, medium and long-term initiatives.

Jetex recently announced that it is working with Shell to offer carbon offsets.
