Atlantic Aviation introduces sustainable aviation fuel in Aspen, Colorado
In celebration of Earth Day, Atlantic Aviation announced the availability of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its Aspen, Colorado, Airport (ASE) fixed-base operation (FBO).
With support from The Aspen-Pitkin County Airport, AvFuel Corp. and Neste Corp., a leading producer of SAF, Atlantic Aviation sees the introduction of SAF at Aspen as a major milestone in its ongoing work to further environmental and community values.
“The regular availability of SAF at ASE represents the next step in our commitment to renewable energy and the reduction of carbon emissions by the aviation industry,’’ said Jay Hamby, senior vice president of Atlantic Aviation. “The integration of SAF into our operations at ASE is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 800,000 pounds annually.”
The delivery of SAF is the latest commitment in a comprehensive environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) program at Atlantic Aviation. SAF follows Atlantic Aviation’s ongoing investment in light-emitting diode (LED) technology, use of electric ground support equipment, and efforts to reduce consumption of plastic and paper consumables. This also includes the recent introduction of SAF and the complete replacement of traditional fossil-based diesel with renewable diesel for ground support equipment at Atlantic’s Los Angeles International Airport FBO.
