NetJets buy first SAF from Air Bp in Spain
Air bp has sold its first ISCC PLUS sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in Spain to NetJets Europe.
“We are proud to collaborate with Air bp to supply SAF for NetJets’ aircraft in Europe. This new partnership is an important next step in our ongoing commitment to reduce the environmental footprint of our company,” said Christian Luwisch, executive director, NetJets Europe. “Our Owners will now benefit from this supply of SAF which we expect to be in the region of 325,000 USG during the first 12 months.”
The SAF comes from bp’s Castellon refinery where used cooking oil and fats are co-processed with fossil fuel.
Martin Thomsen, CEO, Air bp, said: “We are excited to announce our first sale of SAF in Spain, which opens up new supply opportunities in an important aviation market. We are also delighted to have the support of our customer, NetJets Europe, which demonstrates their willingness to invest in SAF to help reduce carbon emissions. We hope this announcement will encourage more customers to purchase SAF in Spain. We believe SAF is one of the aviation industry’s key routes to reducing carbon emissions, and ISCC PLUS certified SAF is the first step towards developing new refining and commercial solutions, including those that achieve CORSIA certification, to keep decarbonizing our offers for our aviation customers.”
