Asia Pacific-based aircraft management and charter operator Phenix Jet Cayman has completed its first international business jet flight outbound from Japan using Susteo, a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) brand manufactured and sold in Japan by Euglena. The aircraft departed from Tokyo's Narita International airport on Friday, 30 September, 2022.
SAF results in reduced CO2 emissions compared with traditional jet fuels, and this biofuel is expected to greatly contribute to the realisation of a decarbonised society in the coming years. Euglena's Susteo is a SAF brand manufactured from raw materials such as used cooking oil and microalgae, which is mixed with traditional fossil jet fuel to create a more eco-friendly fuel.
Phenix Jet operates under two licences; ACP Jet Charters operates its US-registered fleet, and Phenix Jet Cayman SEZC operates its Cayman Islands-registered aircraft. Its diverse fleet of 17 business jets includes the BBJ 737, Bombardier Global 7500, Global 6000, Gulfstream G650/G650ER, Falcon 900 and CitationJet CJ4.
Phenix Jet will continue to seek new opportunities to utilise SAF biofuel in its business jet operations moving forward with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions through its business activities.
