If you’re heading to Caen Carpiquet (CFR/ LFRK) in northern France, then you’ll be pleased to hear that the airport has been offering sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for both general and aviation business customers while stocks last.
This latest fuel offering is in support of the business aviation industry’s Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuel (SAJF) initiative. The scheme launched a year ago and aims to encourage operators and aircraft manufacturers to adopt sustainable aviation fuels wherever possible.
One of the first OEM’s to uplift at Caen in May was Dassault Aviation, with Air BP fuelling a Falcon 2000s aircraft with a total 2009 gallons of SAF.
The fuel, which was produced from used cooking oil by leading renewable fuels producer Neste, offers 80% fewer emissions over its life-cycle compared with conventional jet fuel and is made from non-palm renewable and sustainable raw materials.
We’re delighted to be collaborating with Neste in supporting our customers in the use and adoption of SAF and as part of this agreement we are now ready to supply sustainable aviation fuel to airline and airport customers in Sweden.
