Sirio to upload first SAF at Linate
The uptake of SAF blend at Milan Linate airport by operator Sirio sparks its foray into sustainable solutions in aviation. The company is determined to support further projects in the field of cleaner flight.
Sirio will refuel its jets using Jet A1 + Eni SAF at Milano Linate Prime airport.

Sirio SpA, a boutique business jet operator providing maintenance and management of aircraft and part of Directional Aviation company, will carry out the first refuelling of Jet A1 + Eni SAF on its fleet of business jets at Milan Linate airport.

“This is just the beginning of aviation sustainability solutions and a starting point towards direct emission reduction,” says CEO Tom Engelhard. “We will continue to be at the forefront of projects supporting sustainable flying, both now and into the future.”

The fuel is produced by Italian multinational oil and gas company Eni through a co-feeding process that reduces green house gas emissions.

Milan Linate airport thus becomes the first Italian business aviation airport to offer SAF, and the airport's objective is to make SAF widely available to all business aviation operators starting over the next few months. This move is part of the SEA Group's strategy for sustainability, which was recognised with the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) 4+ Transition certification from Airports Council International Europe for the reduction of direct and indirect CO2 emissions in airports. It follows the replacement of passenger shuttles and operational vehicles with new electric vehicles, and precedes the construction at Milan Malpensa airport of a first green hydrogen plant.

A recent agreement with vertiport designer Skyports for the construction of a platform for electric aircraft suitable for urban mobility is also a further step in this direction.

“We are really glad to have reached a new milestone for Milano Prime. The decarbonisation of our sector is certainly a priority for SEA Prime, and for the SEA Group, as evidenced by all the initiatives implemented to date, and we trust that the availability of SAF in Italy will increase in response to the ever-increasing demand from business aviation operators who want to achieve their sustainability objectives," says CEO Chiara Dorigotti.
