Signature Aviation introduces permanent SAF supplies at Van Nuys Airport in California
Signature Aviation, the world’s largest private aviation terminal operator announced Feb. 8 a new permanent supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) available at Van Nuys Airport in California. The Feb. 7 arrival of the first two 8,000-gallon fuel shipments corresponds to football’s season finale weekend in Los Angeles. Signature Van Nuys is now the 10th location within Signature’s global network to offer a permanent source of SAF for retail purchase, further expanding Signature’s SAF footprint throughout the U.S.
“Signature has made growing our SAF supply chain a priority, and our addition of Van Nuys Airport to Signature Renew’s offerings further strengthens our goal of providing low carbon jet fuel to the private aviation industry,” said Marty Kretchman, senior vice president of operations planning. “The addition of Los Angeles is timed perfectly for football’s biggest game, and we’re excited to add the gallons uplifted at Van Nuys to our total SAF count—which already totals over 5 million gallons pumped.”
Signature Aviation’s SAF is supplied through its Signature Renew program and uses a 30/70 blend of tallow-based feedstock, which results in a 25 percent reduction in carbon intensity of the delivered fuel. In conjunction with Los Angeles World Airports’ ongoing commitment to sustainability, Van Nuys Airport now joins an elite group of SAF supplied airports in the Signature network. Beginning Feb. 7, operators can either procure an uplift of physical SAF at Van Nuys Airport or alternatively tap into Signature’s carbon-reduction inventory for any flight at any airport.
To date, Signature offers aircraft operators a choice of renewably sourced jet fuel at seven North American and three European locations.
