Jet Aviation has partnered with TotalEnergies to provide Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for owners and operators visiting its Geneva FBO during the 2023 European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE). This is the second year Jet Aviation has provided on-site SAF for visitors to EBACE.
Jet Aviation has imported a stock of 30% blend SAF for the conference in Geneva from TotalEnergies, a global multi-energy company that produces biofuels.
“SAF is an important part of our efforts towards a more sustainable future, for the industry, and for Jet Aviation,” said Joao Martins, Jet Aviation’s vice president of FBO operations in Europe and GM Zurich. “We were the first company to bring SAF to Switzerland, in a temporary supply for the World Economic Forum 2020, and since then we have continued to work in partnership with various stakeholders to increase availability in the region, and worldwide.”
In 2019, Jet Aviation was the first supplier to offer sustainable fuel via a blended fuel option at Van Nuys Airport, California. In 2020, the company brought a temporary supply of SAF to Switzerland for the World Economic Forum and in 2021 a permanent supply of SAF was introduced in Jet Aviation Amsterdam, followed by Singapore in 2022. That same year, the company signed the World Economic Forums’ 2030 Ambition Statement, ‘Clean Skies for Tomorrow’. Jet Aviation also makes SAF available for any customer worldwide through Book & Claim and is the only company in the world to offer custom blends of SAF at its FBO at Seletar Airport.
Jet Aviation is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) with some 4,000 employees and 50 locations worldwide. Jet Aviation’s offerings include aircraft management, aircraft sales, charter, completions, defence, FBO, maintenance and staffing.
