With awareness of the benefits of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) growing, along with heightened interest in its use, industry sustainability solutions provider 4AIR has introduced the first interactive SAF map depicting the fuel’s distribution for business aircraft operators. The map currently shows approximately 20 verified locations worldwide with supplies of SAF available for general aviation customers.
It excludes locations that don't make the fuel available to all business aviation customers, including sites that have received one-off tanker loads for demonstration purposes and ones that stock SAF only for a particular user. Each active listing includes the facility’s contact information and address.
4AIR's map—which currently features a preponderance of locations on the U.S. West Coast and in Europe (close to existing SAF production refineries)—will be continually updated as announcements are made and verified. As the number of SAF distribution points increases, 4AIR can offer benefits to its private jet operator members by assisting with uplift documentation tracing and providing calculations for emissions reductions through programs such as CORSIA.
“[SAF] is an efficient and effective way to reduce the impact private jets have on climate change,” said 4AIR president Kennedy Ricci. “This is the best single way for aviators to find this climate-beneficial fuel. And by making it easier to find SAF, we hope to promote its use and expand its availability.”
