Jetexc ontinues to offer more ways of reducing travel carbon emissions; earlier this year, the company began offering SAF at its FBO at Paris Le Bourget airport, and it has now expanded the service to Helsinki airport in partnership with Neste.
Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel, in neat form and over the life cycle, reduces GHG emissions up to 80 per cent compared to fossil jet fuel. The SAF offered by Jetex at Helsinki airport is currently made from waste and residue raw materials.
“At Jetex, we want to help decarbonise the aviation industry, and we will continue to collaborate with industry stakeholders to explore viable options to help scale up sustainable aviation fuel more broadly. We are pleased with our partnership with Neste that helps us bring SAF to our customers at Finland's busiest airport,” says Sufiyan Asif, director of fuel, Jetex.
Jetex acknowledges its responsibility to reduce the carbon impact of aviation on the planet and supports the vision of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, including the improvement of its operational efficiency and investment into the development of a global SAF fuel network. It continues to form partnerships with a number of technology and fuel companies to make SAF available at more locations around the world.
“As air travel is resuming again, it is more urgent than ever for the aviation industry to start minimising its climate impact,” says Neste VP of renewable aviation Europe Jonathan Wood. “Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel enables airlines and business aviation operators to significantly reduce carbon emissions. This new agreement with our partner Jetex is another step in encouraging increased usage of SAF, and we look forward to working with Jetex to further expanding the network of locations where SAF is available.”
According to IATA, more than 100 million litres of SAF will be produced in 2021.
