World Fuel Offers SAF Offset for WEF-bound Bizjets by Chad Trautvetter
World Fuel Services and World Energy are offering a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) program for business jets flying from three U.S. airports to the 50th World Economic Forum (WEF) next week in Davos, Switzerland. To participate, aircraft must fuel at and depart from Jet Aviation facilities at Teterboro (TEB), Boston/Bedford (BED), or Dulles (IAD).
Although Jet Aviation does not offer SAF at these locations, the WEF SAF program allows customers purchasing fuel there to opt-in and claim SAF environmental benefits. Under the program, for each gallon of conventional fuel uploaded at TEB, BED, or IAD, the customer can opt to pay the difference for an equivalent amount of conventional fuel to be replaced with SAF on flights departing from Jet Aviation Van Nuys in California, where it does provide SAF sourced from World Energy.
“In the future, this type of program would enable low-carbon SAF purchases regardless of geography,” said World Fuel Services v-p of business development Darren Fuller. “Our customers that want to participate are spread all over the world, and unfortunately the supply of SAF is not yet broad-based. This program will optimize and align new demand with limited supply while supporting the industry’s sustainability goals.”
