Avfuel Corporation demonstrated its continued commitment to driving sustainability forward with a delivery of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Atlantic Aviation.
The delivery at New Castle Airport, in Delaware, US, was for one of the airport’s private flight department tenants.
This marked the fuel supplier’s first such delivery for a corporate flight department customer following an array of demonstrations with airports and charter companies.
The 7,300-gallon load of SAF, delivered on September 9, made for a two metric ton reduction in CO2 emissions for the customer, supporting a mutual mission to advance sustainability goals.
“Avfuel is excited to expand its portfolio of SAF supply to include corporate flight departments, along with FBOs, OEMs and others,” said Jonathan Boyle, Avfuel’s vice president of contract fuel.
“It’s indicative of the continued interest we’re seeing in sustainability measures throughout business aviation. We are appreciative of the Atlantic Aviation team and our loyal customer for their collaboration in this important demonstration; Avfuel is proud to partner with these operations as a step toward making sustainable aviation fuel more attainable”
Avfuel has a dedicated team of professionals working diligently to source, test, blend and ship SAF for special offtake demonstrations and events throughout the business aviation community.
To combat the greatest hurdle to SAF’s widespread adoption—availability—Avfuel continues to raise awareness with the hope of inspiring commitments to further encourage production.
