Jetex strikes deal with 360 on SAF booking
The new 360 Green Fuel Book and Claim system allows Jetex customers to source SAF based on their total aviation footprint in one transaction, rather than sourcing through each location individually.
Read this story in our June 2023 printed issue.

Dubai-headquartered Jetex has entered into an agreement with aircraft fuelling platform 360 Jet Fuel to offer its customers more flexibility and wider access to SAF benefits.

SAF is a liquid fuel currently used in commercial aviation that reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80 per cent. It can be produced from a number of sources including waste oil and fats, green and municipal waste and non-food crops. It can also be produced synthetically via a process that captures carbon directly from the air.

Part of what makes SAF sustainable is ensuring sustainability in its supply chain. Transporting SAF to a specific airport or flight is not always possible and could lead to higher greenhouse gas emissions. The Book and Claim system provides a solution for these situations.

The new 360 Green Fuel Book and Claim system allows Jetex customers to source SAF based on their total aviation footprint in one transaction, rather than sourcing through each location individually. This means that SAF can be sourced for flights out of airports that do not have SAF supply available. Sourcing SAF on a Book and Claim basis will allow the purchase of any volume of SAF, including 100 per cent of fuel needs or a carbon neutral scenario, without technical limitations such as blending limits.

Jetex customers will be able to claim the C02 emission reduction they achieved by the amount of fossil fuel replaced with SAF acquired. They will receive a certificate specifying the amount of SAF purchased and an audited statement outlining the corresponding CO2 reduction. This documentation can be utilised for sustainability reporting purposes.

To ensure credibility and verifiable emission reductions, 360 Jet Fuel sources physical SAF quantities from ISCC+ certified suppliers, guaranteeing full traceability of the claimed amounts, and ensures delivery to an airline partner within the aviation sector. The solution provided by 360 Jet Fuel undergoes rigorous third-party auditing, ensuring traceability to each delivery batch and eliminating any doubts of double claiming.

The new agreement takes Jetex a step closer to being fully carbon-neutral globally and is aligned with IATA's commitment to achieving 65 per cent SAF share by 2050.
