Jet Aviation & World Fuel Services signed an agreement to secure and offer Sustainable Aviation Fuel on-site at its FBOs in Bozeman, Montana, and Scottsdale, Arizona, effective immediately. This is in addition to the company’s SAF offering at Jet Aviation’s FBO in Van Nuys, California. SAF is a fully compliant, drop-in Jet A/A-1 fuel with the same characteristics and specifications as conventional jet fuel.

Richard Layson, Vice President Regional FBO Operations, commented: “I am delighted to be able to offer customers travelling to Bozeman, Scottsdale, and Van Nuys the choice to fuel with SAF on-site. As two of the newest additions to our FBO network, Bozeman and Scottsdale represent our continued efforts to offer our customers a range of services. We will continue to partner to increase SAF access and availability across our network in areas where our supplies are easily accessible.”

“Jet Aviation is committed to supporting sustainable aviation and contributing towards our industry’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions,” adds David Best, vice president regional operations and general manager Americas. “We all have a role to play in this global effort and collaboration is key to success. We are very excited to partner with World Fuel Services to bring even more sustainable choices to our US customers.”

Brad Hurwitz, senior vice president, fuel supply & trading at World Fuel Services, said: “We are proud to partner with Jet Aviation in enabling increased access to SAF supply across their FBO network. Through actions such as these, we are collectively showing the power of collaboration in helping achieve the aviation industry’s 2050 net zero goals. At World Fuel Services, we are focused on broadening the availability of lower carbon alternatives and we see SAF as a key enabler for taking immediate action to support the decarbonization of air travel.”  

Jet Aviation has offered SAF as part of a blended fuel supply at Van Nuys since 2019. Through this agreement, customers will now be able to purchase from a dedicated SAF inventory at the California site, as well as on-site in Bozeman and Scottsdale. Jet Aviation also offers on-site physical SAF at FBO locations in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Singapore. Since 2021 the company has offered customers the opportunity to access the benefits of SAF in locations where there is currently no physical supply through its global Book and Claim service.
