For the first time in its history, Geneva Airport will have sustainable aviation fuel available and being used to lower carbon emissions for outbound flights. The supply comes as business aviation hosts its European convention in the city from May 23-25. SAF has the potential to reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions as much as 80%, compared to a fossil equivalent.

Stakeholders with the Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Aviation Fuel secured agreements to make the SAF available at GVA. FBO/Ground Handling and aircraft fuel provider Jet Aviation, together with TotalEnergies, worked in coordination to make the SAF available as the 2022 edition of the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2022) gets underway.

“Business aviation continues to advocate for and take steps to grow SAF, which is a cornerstone of our climate strategy,” National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen said. “Today, there is more availability, production and supply than ever before. Almost daily, new collaborations and projects are boosting the production of these carbon-cutting fuels. SAF is our industry’s sustainable solution today as we innovate and create even more advanced technologies for tomorrow.”

“One of the key issues we are advocating for in Europe is the geographical spread of SAF,” said European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) Secretary-General Athar Husain Khan. “This is why it is so significant and crucial for us to have it available at our own show, in Geneva, so that we practice what we preach.”

“Jet Aviation is wholly committed to offering sustainable solutions for our customers, our businesses and the communities we serve,” said David Paddock, president, Jet Aviation. “We believe collaboration is one of the best ways to bring innovative solutions to life and we are pleased to partner with industry stakeholders to help increase the global supply of sustainable aviation fuel.”

Last September, the industry updated its Business Aviation Commitment on Climate Change and pledged to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

EBACE2022 will feature the latest on next-generation aviation-propulsion technologies — including aviation’s electric-powered future and advanced air mobility — the use of market-based innovations, flight efficiency and fuel reduction, all in support of the net-zero goal.
