Jet Aviation, SkyNRG partner on SAF book-and-claim service
Jet Aviation announced Dec. 8 that it has entered into an agreement with SkyNRG, a global leader of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and related solutions, to offer SAF to its customers universally through a book-and-claim service with immediate effect.
Book and claim enables business aviation owners and operators for whom SAF is not physically available for uplift to access SAF at will and thereby reduce their carbon footprint. SkyNRG supplies the SAF at an airport nearby the production location where it is sold as conventional jet fuel. The volume of SAF is tracked and verified, and the corresponding carbon-emissions factors are then calculated and allocated to the end-customer. This ensures environmental benefits are properly accounted for, including the avoidance of unnecessary transportation costs.
“As a global company with global customers, we are committed to contributing to the reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions and are pleased to partner with SkyNRG to make SAF more widely accessible,” said David Paddock, Jet Aviation president. “We know SAF has strong potential to reduce the industry’s environmental impact and as a business aviation service provider, we are pleased to help broaden access to SAF by offering more choices to aviation customers through our new book-and-claim service. Global access to SAF through book and claim brings us one big step further in ensuring everyone can choose to be part of the climate solution—anywhere, anytime.”
Theye Veen, managing director SkyNRG, said, “Our goal is to make SAF the new global standard. By decoupling the physical flow from the carbon-reduction benefits, we optimize supply chains, minimize costs, and maximize environmental benefits through a controlled and verifiable process. We are delighted to partner with Jet Aviation—and all their stakeholders—as we work together to build a better world. Book and claim is essential to help scale-up SAF globally.”
Jet Aviation has recently made SAF available on-site at its FBO located at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The company also offers a sustainable aviation fuel blend on an ongoing basis at its FBO in Van Nuys, California.
