Building on its success of supplying sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at select locations in Europe, Jetex, a global leader in executive aviation, announced Nov. 8 it will now offer aircraft operators and private owners the possibility of significantly reducing emissions whenever they operate flights from its flagship private terminal in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.





“Bringing SAF to the United Arab Emirates is a milestone achievement, and today I am pleased that we finally can offer this type of aircraft fuel to our customers in Dubai in partnership with Shell Aviation,” said Adel Mardini, the founder and CEO of Jetex. “It is even more important in light of 2023 being announced as the ‘Year of Sustainability’ in the UAE as it cements our ambition to reduce carbon emissions.”





As a safe and fully certified drop-in fuel compatible with existing aircraft fleet and airport infrastructure, SAF can be blended with conventional jet fuel at a ratio of up to 50 percent, creating an aviation fuel that is significantly lower in lifecycle-carbon emissions.





In its neat form, SAF can reduce lifecycle emissions by up to 80 percent compared to conventional jet fuel.





“To reduce emissions from flying, all parts of the aviation value chain need to play their part,” said Doris Tan, Shell Aviation’s general manager for the Asia and Middle East regions. “This is particularly crucial for private business customers as they can create a concentrated, high-impact demand for SAF. Additionally, expanding the availability of SAF to new locations is equally important, which is why it’s been highly rewarding to work with Jetex to enhance our SAF capabilities in the Middle East by delivering SAF at DWC (Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai) for the first time.”





Jetex said its environment strategy focuses on reducing carbon emissions, recycling and adapting the latest green technologies across its global network.





“The company’s efforts are aligned with the International Air Transport Association’s commitment to fly net zero by 2050, and achieving this requires a combination of maximum elimination of emissions at the source, offsetting and carbon-capture technologies,” Jetex stated. “It is vital for the future of aviation to continue to address climate change and Jetex remains focused on playing its part to reduce the impact on the planet.”
