This new offering shows the company's continued commitment into the new year to match or potentially exceed last year's threshold of reducing 10.8 million lbs of carbon emissions through the supply of SAF at the LAX facility. The SAF is fully miscible with conventional jet fuel and is expected to account for eight per cent of Atlantic Aviation's total jet fuel volume at LAX over time.
“We are excited to announce LAX as the first Atlantic Aviation FBO to offer retail SAF, given its location at the epicentre of the entertainment industry and importance as a west coast destination for our clients,” says director of operational strategy Richard Thacker. “We look forward to continuing our commitment to being a national leader in sustainable aviation practices by continuing our work with LAX. We are dedicated to carbon reduction, the implementation of sustainable fuel and progress toward carbon neutrality more broadly.”
This offering is the latest in a long line of sustainability initiatives that Atlantic Aviation has undertaken. In April 2021, its LAX FBO agreed to replace all of the fossil-based diesel fuel used in ground support equipment with renewable diesel.
