Air bp, the international aviation fuel products and service supplier, has supplied sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to three airports in the U.K.: dedicated business aviation airport, London Biggin Hill (BQH), Airbus owned Hawarden (CEG) airport in Flintshire, North Wales, which will be used for fueling of the Beluga aircraft, and Centreline FBO, in Bristol (BRS). All three locations expect to have SAF available on an ongoing basis.
These latest supply agreements demonstrate the importance of collaboration between fuel supplier, airport, and customer in driving demand for SAF and ultimately help to meet the industry’s lower carbon goals. The SAF supplied by Air bp is made from waste-based sustainable feedstocks such as used cooking oil which is blended with traditional jet fuel. The SAF blend supplied is around 35% SAF and the SAF component provides a lifecycle carbon reduction of around 80% compared to the traditional jet fuel it replaces.
