Pula Aviation Services Limited (PASL) subsidiary Centreline Aviation, the lone FBO at the UK’s Bristol Airport, has inked a deal with Air BP to become the country’s first independent, non-network retailer of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The drop-in fuel provided is blended with conventional fuel and requires no difference in its ground handling or usage.
Air BP has thus far delivered SAF to 18 locations on three continents and, as in the case with its Bristol deliveries, the fuel’s lifecycle carbon emissions savings are calculated to include its journey to its delivery at on airport storage facilities. SAF became available last year at Signature Flight Support’s facility at London Luton; like the world’s largest FBO chain, PASL views renewable fuel as a key part in furthering its carbon-neutral goals.
“Our partnership with Air BP is a sustainable step for the PASL group as we remain committed to playing our part in reducing the impact aviation has on global carbon emissions,” said PASL COO and Centreline accountability manager Gus Paterson. “By offering our charter clients a SAF option, we are making progress in being carbon negative in air operations by 2025, as well as providing our FBO clients with the opportunity to make sustainable choices when refueling in Bristol."
