Atlantic Aviation and Avfuel provide SAF to UN delegates meeting in Aspen
Avfuel and Atlantic Aviation will supplement their continuous supply of SAF with two renewable diesel-powered truckloads of the fuel to Atlantic’s FBO at Aspen-Pitken County Airport (ASE) on September 23.
The fuel is being placed in a newly dedicated SAF tank and an “Atlantic Evolve” fuel truck commemorating the occasion.
The event — which includes members from diverse mountainous countries worldwide — is conducted every four years, but 2022 marks the first time it is being held in North America.
The meeting brings together hundreds of attendees from the environmental and science communities, along with a number of politicians, which this year includes Colorado’s Governor Jared Polis.
“Atlantic Aviation is firmly committed to going higher when it comes to promoting sustainable aviation, especially in sensitive mountain environments for which air travel is critical infrastructure for people, goods and services,” said Brian Corbett, chief commercial and sustainability officer at Atlantic Aviation. “All of us at both Atlantic Aviation and Avfuel are pleased to increase our constant supply of SAF at Aspen-Pitken County Airport for this landmark event.”
Keith Sawyer, Avfuel’s manager of alternative fuels, added: “Avfuel is proud to support Atlantic Aviation’s sustainability mission with the provision of SAF, particularly in the renowned Aspen region. We’re further honored to play a role in this historic event by supplying SAF as aviation’s most effective way to reduce the carbon footprint of air travel, making a meaningful difference that supports the spirit of the United Nations’ meeting.”
