Jet Aviation has secured a supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for visitors during the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2024. This is the second time the organization has provided on-site SAF in Zurich for visitors to WEF in partnership with Zurich Airport. 

Since 2020, we have been offering SAF to our customers attending the WEF, either on-site or through Book and Claim,” says Joao Martins, vice president regional FBO operations Europe and General Manager Zurich. “We have been working closely with the Zurich Airport team and our partners and are delighted to be able to make physical SAF available on-site again this year.” 

SAF has the potential to reduce aviation’s greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% over its lifecycle. It is a fully compliant, drop-in Jet A/A-1 fuel with the same characteristics and specifications as conventional jet fuel. 

Jet Aviation, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, piloted SAF in Zurich during WEF 2020. It was the first time SAF had been made available for purchase in Switzerland. Since then, the company has continued to provide customers in Zurich with SAF via Book & Claim, while working with partners to secure further physical supply. 

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 Amsterdam, followed by Singapore in 2022. That same year, Jet Aviation signed the World Economic Forums’ 2030 Ambition Statement, ‘Clean Skies for Tomorrow’.
