VINCI Airports, World Fuel Services start SAF at Toulon Hyères
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is now available at VINCI Airport’s Toulon Hyères Airport. The SAF is being provided by World Fuel Services the airport’s sole fuelling company for both airlines and business aircraft.
Aircraft using SAF will be eligible for lower landing fees under VINCI Airports’ eco-modulation scheme which launched in 2020. The SAF will be distributed from an electric refuelling truck.
“This new offer of sustainable aviation fuels with a 100% electric vehicle demonstrates once again VINCI Airports’ commitment to the decarbonization of air transport, which we are applying here at Toulon Hyères Airport,” said Basma Jarbouai, director, Toulon Hyères Airport, VINCI Airports.
VINCI says that the SAF, which comes from used cooking oils, will be a 30% blend with conventional jet fuel.
SAF is already available at two other VINCI Airports – Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport (since April 2021) and Grenoble Alpes Isère Airport.
