In support of the sustainability goals of NBAA’s annual conference this year in Las Vegas, Atlantic Aviation (Booth 2201) is supplying sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for departing aircraft at its FBO at Harry Reid International Airport (KLAS).

The company received a load of SAF that will represent approximately 15 percent of the total fuel volume it expects to sell during the three days of the conference. Atlantic will absorb the additional cost of the SAF to help its departing customers offset their carbon footprints.

“The effective replacement of traditional jet-A with this delivery of SAF represents another step forward in our commitment to renewable energy and allows our customers to actively participate in the reduction of carbon emissions without shouldering the cost,” explained Jay Hamby, the company’s senior v-p.

The SAF delivery at KLAS is the latest move in Atlantic’s environmental, social, and corporate governance program. Earlier this year the world’s second-largest service provider chain began stocking permanent supplies of SAF at its Los Angeles International (KLAX), and Aspen-Pitkin County (KASE) Airport locations, and also entirely replaced fossil diesel fuel for its ground equipment at KLAX with renewable diesel. The company is also investing in electric ground support equipment at many of its locations.
