Users of private aircraft heading to the annual World Economic Forum—which starts on Monday in Davos, Switzerland—are being encouraged to use book-and-claim for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) credit if SAF is not available at their departure airports.

The Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Aviation Fuel noted that book and claim—a process by which a customer pays for SAF and receives the environmental credit even though the fuel may be dispensed and consumed elsewhere in another aircraft—will be available through Basel, Switzerland-based Jet Aviation. Use of book-and-claim increases demand for SAF—which provides lifecycle carbon emissions reductions compared with conventional jet-A—and further incentivizes production.

“Purchasing SAF provides travelers with a way to directly invest in eliminating aviation lifecycle emissions,” said Adrienne Gibbs, policy lead for the World Economic Forum’s Clean Skies for Tomorrow initiative. “Clean Skies for Tomorrow is excited about the progress made on SAF in recent years and about the purchase options that exist for both business aviation customers and those traveling on airlines.”
