JetBlue has announced plans to bolster its transition to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) with a new agreement with AIR COMPANY, an innovative carbon technology company creating carbon-negative alcohols and fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2). AIR COMPANY has developed and deployed a single-step process for CO2-derived fuel production using renewable electricity to create its novel AIRMADE™ sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) product. JetBlue’s memorandum of understanding (MOU) with AIR COMPANY comes on the heels of a direct capital investment into AIR COMPANY’s Series A funding round from JetBlue’s venture capital subsidiary, JetBlue Ventures.
With this commitment, JetBlue announces its intent to purchase 25 million gallons of AIRMADE™ SAF over five years, with a targeted start in 2027. AIR COMPANY joins JetBlue’s growing list of SAF partnerships as it advances its goal to convert 10% of its total fuel usage to SAF on a blended basis by 2030.
