SAF at EBACE adds to the show's sustainability focus
Sustainable aviation fuel will be available at Geneva airport this month for those travelling to EBACE2024 in Switzerland on 28-30 May.
Jet Aviation will deliver a 35 per cent blend of SAF to Geneva airport for EBACE.

Jet Aviation is to deliver a 35 per cent blend of SAF to Geneva airport for the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition this month, marking the company's third year providing SAF for EBACE.

"We are delighted to bring SAF to EBACE again this year," says Joao Martins, vice president of FBO operations in Europe and general manager at Zurich. "SAF is an important part of our efforts towards a more sustainable future, for the industry and for Jet Aviation. We were proud to be the first company to bring SAF to Switzerland in 2020, and since then we have continued to work in partnership to increase availability in the region and globally. Jet Aviation also makes SAF available for any customer worldwide through our Book & Claim programme."

Co-hosted by the EBAA and the NBAA, EBACE will showcase the industry's commitment to net-zero emissions and progress toward its carbon goals with a three-day Sustainability Summit; a focus on the latest alternative propulsion technologies, including Swiss explorer Bertrand Piccard's project to fly around the world in an aircraft powered by green hydrogen; an advanced air mobility aircraft on the outdoor display for the first time; an innovation pavilion with next-generation aircraft; and the unveiling of new set of sustainability standards for the industry.

NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen says: "Business aviation is increasing efficiency and reducing carbon emissions on the ground and in the air. SAF remains a cornerstone of our plan for achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. We thank Jet Aviation for stepping forward to make SAF and its benefits available to those joining us at what will be an exciting EBACE."

"Our industry is dedicated to sustainability and SAF is critical part of achieving our environmental goals," adds EBAA secretary general Holger Krahmer. "We need to continue to increase the availability, production and use of SAF, and we applaud Jet Aviation for playing such an important role in expanding sustainable fuel supplies around the world."
