Singapore gains blended SAF with Jet Aviation and FlyORO
Jet Aviation is now providing FlyORO's custom blends of SAF at its Seletar airport FBO in Singapore. Customers can choose any percentage blend that meets their specific requirements.
Jet Aviation is now offering AlphaLite, FlyORO's fast, flexible SAF blending.

Jet Aviation has partnered with Singapore-based fuel blending services provider FlyORO to offer custom blends of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its Seletar airport FBO. The tailored SAF blends use FlyORO's AlphaLite technology and are available immediately.

Jet Aviation already offers SAF at its Seletar base, having secured a stock supply of Neste's 39 per cent blend, fully compliant, drop-in Jet A/A-1 fuel, supplied by Shell Aviation, in May 2022. The partnership with FlyORO is the first of its kind to give customers the opportunity to choose a custom percentage blend of SAF to meet their specific requirements.

“SAF is an important part of our efforts towards a more sustainable future, for the industry and for Jet Aviation,” says Jet Aviation president David Paddock. “Jet Aviation is committed to working in partnership with various stakeholders to drive availability, understanding and adoption of SAF across our network and beyond. Offering customers a customised blend of SAF that meets their specific requirements is another way to further provide a seamless, personalised service at every touch point. We are delighted to partner with FlyORO on this project and bring its innovative solution to our Seletar FBO.”

Jet Aviation is the first FBO in the world to offer AlphaLite, FlyORO's modular blending technology that can provide fast, flexible SAF blending at the highest level of precision, quality and safety protocols.

“We are proud to launch the world's first flexible SAF blending system, in partnership with Jet Aviation in Singapore,” says FlyORO CEO Jonathan Yeo. “Jet Aviation, as a leader in business aviation, has always been the first to lead and demonstrate its commitment to sustainability in the region and globally. Together, we look forward to creating a more robust supply chain to further aviation's journey in the energy transition and create innovative solutions in SAF blends, designed to be tailored to the respective sustainability requirements in business aviation.”

“Singapore is a key business aviation hub in Asia Pacific, and we are proud to lead the way in making SAF blends available from our Seletar airport facility, in partnership with FlyORO,” adds Jet Aviation director of FBO operations in Singapore Faizal Khan. “We are always looking for meaningful ways to broaden sustainable choices for our customers, and we hope this next step will further grow the global SAF community and ultimately increase the number of flights operating on SAF.”

In 2019, Jet Aviation was the first supplier to offer sustainable fuel via a blended fuel option at Van Nuys airport, California. It was also the first company to bring SAF to Switzerland, in a temporary supply for the World Economic Forum 2020. In 2021 a permanent supply of SAF was introduced in Jet Aviation Amsterdam, followed by Singapore in 2022. This same year, the company signed the World Economic Forums' 2030 ambition statement 'Clean Skies for Tomorrow'. Jet Aviation also makes SAF available for any customer worldwide through Book & Claim.

FlyORO provides a modular, on demand blending service of SAF and jet fuel, and gives flyers the flexibility to align their ESG targets per flight rather than succumb to fixed blend ratios and bulk commitments upfront. With a small form factor of 40ft, its AlphaLite technology is space efficient and portable and can be installed anywhere on or off airport base. This solution allows airport fuel operators to serve flyers more effectively with a simplified supply chain.
