In honor of Thursday's Earth Day, Atlantic Aviation announced it has begun stocking continual supplies of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its FBO at Colorado’s Aspen-Pitkin County Airport (KASE). For Atlantic, which operates at nearly 70 locations in the U.S., this represents its second facility to continually offer SAF.

The blended fuel, produced by Neste and distributed by Avfuel, is another milestone in the company’s efforts to further goals highlighted as part of its comprehensive environmental, social, and corporate governance program, along with continuing investment in reduced energy LED lighting, electric ground support vehicles, and the replacement of conventional diesel fuel with renewable diesel at its Los Angeles International Airport location.

“The regular availability of SAF at KASE represents the next step in our commitment to renewable energy and the reduction of carbon emissions by the aviation industry,” said Atlantic senior v-p Jay Hamby. ‘The integration of SAF into our operations at KASE is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 800,000 pounds annually.”
