Geneva-based Titan Aviation Fuels International is extending its presence throughout Europe and adding more sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) options to its product portfolio. The international team, which is responsible for all territories outside of the US, has added five new SAF sites to its Spanish network and is working with Spanish energy company CEPSA to increase the opportunity for uplift to customers flying from Madrid, Barcelona, Palma, Malaga and Seville airports.

Titan recognises the importance of sustainability for European operators, owners and customers, and is committed to supporting the industry's ambitious plans to manage and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The company encourages clients to uplift SAF, provides blends where available and offers carbon offset options when it is not.

"We are seeing more demand for sustainable aviation fuel from our customers, but supply remains a challenge in Europe, making it difficult to source. The limited supply and demand also affect price. However, we have recently increased our supply in Spain and continue to seek out new SAF suppliers. For customers that are unable to source the fuel we provide our own carbon offset programme, to which customers can subscribe," says CEO Daniel Coetzer.

Since opening the doors of the Geneva office in Switzerland, Titan Aviation Fuels has garnered an impressive roster of business aviation operators and owners worldwide, signing up for the refueller's services. European clients are embracing the efficiency, reliability and streamlined offering delivered by the highly experienced team led by respected fuelling professionals Coetzer and managing director Valerie Bouthiaux.

Customers appreciate the simplicity of Titan's real-time fuel planning, digital quoting, pre-ordering and purchasing from an extended global network of approved suppliers, security of fuelling at competitive pricing and consistently high levels of service from the Titan 24/7 customer service team. In addition, Titan provides operational integration and VAT and mineral oil tax management expertise, which is notoriously complex for flight departments and managers to calculate.

"We keep things simple for our customers so they can focus on operating their aircraft rather than the practical and fiscal complexities of uplifting fuel internationally," says Coetzer.

As the industry faces ongoing talent shortages Titan, which will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, has acquired the former AeroShell Aerobatic Team, which has a 40 year history of performing in the North American AT-6 Texans.

Coetzer adds: "It's all about connecting with aviation in a personal way. Our fuelling business combines advanced technology and efficiencies with personal relationships, and the Titan Aerobatic Team perfectly exemplifies this approach. We want to showcase the excitement, innovation and lateral thinking aviation showcases. If, by watching our acrobatic team perform, we inspire young and diverse sectors of the population to want to join the industry, that will be one of our greatest achievements."
