JetBlue Airways Corp. on Monday said it would increase its use of sustainable aviation fuel at Los Angeles International Airport.

The airline said World Energy and World Fuel Services would supply the sustainable aviation fuel. The airline also said its increased usage of sustainable aviation fuel includes 1.5 million gallons of blended SAF a year for at least three years, which is about 5% of its LAX fuel.

"Sustainable aviation fuel is one of the most promising ways to rapidly reduce air travel emissions and help our industry move toward our net-zero goals," said Sara Bogdan, JetBlue's director of sustainability and environmental social governance. "We are focused on growing our use of sustainable aviation fuel to replace conventional fossil-based jet fuel in our focus cities as it becomes available."

World Energy will supply the fuel from its facility in Paramount, Calif., JetBlue said, and added delivery will be managed by World Fuel Services, the airline's fuel management company.

JetBlue said it targeted a goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.
