Business aviation company Jetflite is offering lower-emission private business flights in Finland.
Jetflite is committed to sustainable aviation and is reducing greenhouse gas emissions with Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
The first lower-emission flight by Jetflite will take place this month.
Jetflite, belonging to a large Finnish industrial conglomerate Wihuri Group, specialises in business flights, group charter and air ambulance services. Jetflite is also managing aircraft and offering air cargo services.
Jan Lindholm, head of sales at Jetflite, said: “Flying has been challenging during the pandemic due to increased regulation and closed borders. Still, the number of flights has remained high as we can operate evacuation and air ambulance flights.
“With the vaccinations in place and countries opening up, we predict the need for business aviation to start increasing. During that time, we want to be able to offer lower-emission flights and help our customers to reduce their carbon footprint of business flying significantly.”
Jetflite has five aircraft in its fleet. The company also has an extensive network of partner operators offering altogether 600 to 700 flights per year, under normal circumstances.
Tuomas Kulola, head of sales, Marketing and Services, Neste, added: “Neste and Jetflite have been collaborating for over five years on delivering fuels for the flights at Helsinki airport in Finland. This is now our first step in partnering to reduce the carbon footprint of business flights that Jetflite offers.”
In the US and Europe, Neste’s annual sustainable aviation fuel supply capacity is currently 100,000 tons.
With the Singapore refinery expansion on the way, Neste will have the capacity to produce over 1.5 million tons of sustainable aviation fuel in 2023, including the recently announced additional investment in Rotterdam.
