Centreline AV has partnered with Air bp to supply Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) from its base at Bristol Airport in the UK.
Centreline has invested in the infrastructure to supply SAF as part of its commitment to reduce the environmental impact of its operations with a target of becoming carbon neutral by 2025.
The fuel is blended with traditional Jet A1 meaning there are no differences in aircraft ground handling requirements or fuel efficiency for the aircraft it is supplied to.
The SAF will reduce aircraft lifecycle carbon emissions by around 80% compared to the traditional jet fuel it replaces.
Gus Paterson, chief operating officer, said: “Our partnership with Air bp is a sustainable step forward for the PASL group as we remain committed to playing our part in reducing the impact aviation has on global carbon emissions. By offering our charter clients a SAF option we are making progress in being a carbon negative in air operation by 2025, as well as providing our clients with the opportunity to make sustainable choices when refuelling in Bristol.”
Air bp’s long-established supply chain has delivered SAF to 18 locations over three continents.
David Mosley, sustainability manager at Air bp, added: “At Air bp, achieving a low carbon future for aviation is a challenge we embrace wholeheartedly. We are delighted to support Centreline in supplying sustainable aviation fuel to their customers as they work towards reducing their emissions.”
Simon Earles, sustainability and corporate affairs director at Bristol Airport, said: “We are delighted Centreline has partnered with Air bp to bring sustainable aviation fuel in to Bristol Airport. We welcome their leadership and are committed to working with our airlines and other partners to accelerate our journey towards Net Zero.”
