Atlantic Aviation—the aircraft static display host at this year's NBAA-BACE at its Orlando Executive Airport (KORL) FBO—is partnering with industry sustainability solutions provider 4Air to offer a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) book-and-claim program for all jet-A purchased at its KORL or KMCO locations during the show.
Book-and-claim allows operators to purchase and receive sustainability credit for the use of SAF in locations where the fuel is not physically present. The actual fuel is then dispensed to another aircraft in an area where SAF is available, whose operator would not be able to claim the credit for its use.
According to Atlantic, it will cover the premium charged for the SAF fuel credits, which will be verified by 4Air. Through a SAF delivery receipt program developed in conjunction with NATA, customers will receive emissions reduction receipts as fuel is dispensed during the event.
“When we considered trucking SAF the roughly 2,800 miles from West Coast refineries to Orlando for the show, we realized doing so could be considered somewhat disingenuous, as any environmental benefit from the SAF received would be negatively offset by diesel emissions from the trucks that brought it,” said Brian Corbett, Atlantic’s chief commercial and sustainability officer. “Partnering with 4Air on this unique book-and-claim program provides a much more intelligent and effective solution.”
