Jetex now offering SAF at Paris base


Jetex has begun offering sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to its customers at Jetex Le Bourget, Paris. The SAF, which has been available since June, is produced by TotalEnergies in France, and made from used cooking oil.

Fueling at Jetex Le Bourget is facilitated by a 100% electric refuelling truck which further reduces carbon footprint of the operation.

Sufiyan Asif, Director of Fuel at Jetex, said: “We take pride in being part of the aviation community that has yet again proven to be accountable and responsible, taking a positive step towards reducing carbon emissions. Jetex has reiterated its stance towards this goal by making it easier for customers to avail SAF at one of its FBO base at Paris Le Bourget. As a one-stop shop aviation service provider, we are pleased to be able to include SAF arrangements as part of our world-class services for customers looking to meet the challenge of carbon neutrality.”

Progressing the development and commercial deployment of SAF is crucial to decarbonising the aviation industry, say Jetex. According to IATA, more than 100m litres of SAF will be produced in 2021. The use of SAF is a major focus for Jetex and forms part of the company’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
