Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) will be available at Geneva Airport (GVA) for those travelling to the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE2024) on May 28-30.
Jet Aviation will deliver a 35% blend of SAF to GVA for the event, marking the company’s third year providing SAF for EBACE.
“We are delighted to bring SAF to EBACE again this year,” said Joao Martins, Jet Aviation’s vice president of FBO operations in Europe and GM Zurich.
“SAF is an important part of our efforts towards a more sustainable future, for the industry, and for Jet Aviation.
“We were proud to be the first company to bring SAF to Switzerland, in 2020, and since then we have continued to work in partnership to increase availability in the region, and globally. Jet Aviation also makes SAF available for any customer worldwide through our Book & Claim programme.”
Co-hosted by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), EBACE will showcase the industry’s commitment to net-zero emissions and progress toward its carbon goals with a three-day Sustainability Summit; a focus on the latest alternative propulsion technologies, including Swiss explorer Bertrand Piccard’s project to fly around the world in an aircraft powered by green hydrogen; an advanced air mobility aircraft on the outdoor display for the first time; an innovation pavilion with next-generation planes; and the unveiling of new set of sustainability standards for the industry.
NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen said: “Business aviation is increasing efficiency and reducing carbon emissions on the ground and in the air. SAF remains a cornerstone of our plan for achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. We thank Jet Aviation for stepping forward to make SAF and its benefits available to those joining us at what will be an exciting EBACE.”
