Atlantic Aviation has expanded its continual supply of sustainable aviation fuel in Colorado to all four of its FBOs in the state. In spring 2021, Atlantic and its supplier Avfuel announced that continuous supplies of Neste SAF would be available at its Aspen (KASE) location. Now the two companies have turned on the SAF spigot at Atlantic’s Montrose Regional Airport (KMTJ), Yampa Valley Airport (KHDN), and Rifle Garfield County Airport (KRIL) facilities as well.

The Neste fuel, at a blend ratio of 30 percent SAF to 70 percent conventional jet-A, saves 19 tonnes of lifecycle carbon emissions per truckload, the same amount of carbon sequestered by 22.5 acres of forest each year.

“We view SAF as the most viable and impactful step toward enabling a greener future for our industry, and are committed to supporting customer sustainability goals accordingly,” said Brian Corbett, Atlantic’s chief commercial and sustainability officer. “Striving to reduce our impact on the environment is a promise we’ve made to our customers, our staff, and the communities we serve.”
