JetBlue is to bolster its transition to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) with a new agreement with Air Company - a carbon technology company creating carbon-negative alcohols and fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2).

The firm has developed and deployed a single-step process for CO2-derived fuel production using renewable electricity to create its novel AIRMADE™ SAF product.
JetBlue announced 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.

“SAF is one of the most promising avenues for addressing aviation emissions currently available. With creative thinking backed by science, Air works to leverage captured carbon, a resource distinct from other SAF feedstocks, represents the kind of innovation that can expand SAF availability and grow the market necessary to reach our industry goals,” said Sara Bogdan, director of sustainability and environmental social governance, JetBlue.
“We’re excited to build upon this partnership established by JetBlue Ventures as we continue our own path to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.”

Currently available SAF offers approximately 80% reduction in emissions per net gallon on a lifecycle basis.
