Jet Aviation to sell SAF at Zurich for the WEF
For the second time, Jet Aviation is to provide physical, on-site SAF at Zurich airport for visitors to the World Economic Forum 2024.
Jet Aviation has secured a supply of SAF for upload at Zurich airport during the WEF this month.

Jet Aviation has secured a supply of SAF for visitors during the World Economic Forum 2024. This is the second time it has provided on-site SAF for visitors to WEF.

"Since 2020, we have been offering SAF to our customers attending the WEF, either on-site or through Book and Claim," says Joao Martins, vice president regional FBO operations Europe and general manager Zurich. "We have been working closely with the Zurich airport team and our partners, and are delighted to be able to make physical SAF available on-site again this year."

"Jet Aviation is committed to supporting efforts to reduce the industry's carbon footprint, and we will continue to partner with airports and suppliers to increase SAF access and availability across our network," adds Jeremie Caillet, senior vice president regional operations EMEA.

Jet Aviation piloted SAF in Zurich during WEF 2020, the first time SAF had been made available for purchase in Switzerland. Since then, the company has continued to provide customers in Zurich with SAF via Book and Claim, while working with partners to secure further physical supply.

"We are proud to support Jet Aviation in offering sustainable aviation fuel at Zurich airport," says Emanuel Fleuti, head of sustainability and environment at Flughafen Zurich. "The increased production and use of SAF is an important piece of the puzzle in the decarbonisation of the aviation industry. This requires the commitment and cooperation of all the airport partners involved."

In 2019, Jet Aviation was the first supplier to offer sustainable fuel via a blended fuel option at Van Nuys airport, California. In 2020, it brought a temporary supply of SAF to Switzerland for the World Economic Forum and in 2021 a permanent supply of SAF was introduced in Amsterdam, followed by Singapore in 2022. That same year, Jet Aviation signed the World Economic Forums' 2030 Ambition Statement 'Clean Skies for Tomorrow'.

In 2023, the company added its FBOs in Bozeman, Montana and Scottsdale, Arizona to the locations where physical SAF is available in the US, followed by Rotterdam in The Netherlands earlier this month. Since 2021, Jet Aviation has also offered customers the opportunity to access the benefits of SAF in locations where there is currently no physical supply through its global Book and Claim programme.
