Jet Aviation has signed the World Economic Forum's (WEF) 2030 ambition statement 'Clean Skies for Tomorrow', which is designed to see SAF constitute 10 per cent of the global fuel supply by 2030. In doing so it joins a community of some 100 stakeholders across the aviation value chain dedicated to supporting the transition to net zero aviation.
“Jet Aviation believes collaboration is one of the best ways to bring innovative solutions to life, and we are delighted to partner with WEF and other industry stakeholders to help increase the global supply of sustainable aviation fuel,” says president David Paddock. “SAF has strong potential to reduce the industry's carbon footprint, and increasing its availability helps bring us one step closer to making it the standard fuel for business aviation.”
Jet Aviation was the first supplier to offer a SAF blend at Van Nuys airport in 2019. In collaboration with Neste and Zurich airport, the company imported a limited supply of SAF for WEF 2020, using the event as a pilot project for customer receptivity. It was the first time SAF had been made available for purchase in Switzerland.
Last year, the company signed an agreement with Neste to secure and offer Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel on-site at its FBO in Amsterdam. It also entered into an agreement with SkyNRG to offer SAF to customers universally through a book and claim service.
“We are wholly committed to enabling sustainable outcomes for our businesses, the communities we serve and our employees,” adds Paddock. “We will continue to collaborate with partners around the world to foster solutions for a clean environment and we look forward to working with WEF and the industry to support Clean Skies for Tomorrow and ultimately a carbon-neutral future.”
