Avfuel has formed a strategic partnership with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) provider Neste to further the continuous flow of the renewable drop-in fuel in the U.S. According to the agreement, Neste will supply SAF volumes to meet the growing demand of Avfuel’s FBO, airport, flight department, OEM, and commercial operators, making the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based fuel provider one of the first to be able to supply those customers on a continuous basis. Avfuel will now become a branded SAF distributor for Neste’s fuel, which will be sold under the brand name Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel.

Monterey Jet Center in California will be the first Avfuel dealer to receive the fuel continually, with its first delivery slated for the first quarter of the year. The two companies will work with the Monterey Regional Airport FBO to ensure the supply chain is running smoothly, before rolling out the program to other locations.

“This strategic partnership is an exciting development for the industry’s sustainability initiative, and a natural next step in response to aviation’s growing demand for SAF,” said Avfuel president and CEO Craig Sincock, adding it combines the strengths of the two companies. “Together we are able to support aviation’s sustainability goals and enhance supply availability at a commercial scale, filling an immense gap in the industry’s supply chain.”
