SAF agreement at Munich

Comment on this article

Air bp has confirmed an agreement for its first sale of sustainable aviation fuel at Munich airport.

A business aviation operator will start to purchase SAF from the beginning of June. This marks the second location in Germany where Air bp has supplied SAF, the first being in December 2019 at Hamburg Finkenwerder airport.

This latest supply agreement follows Air bp’s recent SAF supply to three UK locations: London Biggin Hill, Airbus-owned Hawarden and Centreline FBO Bristol, along with one in France, at Clermont Ferrand. These agreements reinforce the importance of collaboration between fuel supplier, airport and customer in driving the demand for SAF needed if the industry is to meet its lower carbon goals.

The SAF supplied by Air bp is made from waste based sustainable feedstocks such as used cooking oil which is blended with traditional jet fuel. The SAF blend supplied is around 35% SAF and 65% traditional jet fuel. The SAF component provides a lifecycle carbon reduction of around 80% compared to the traditional jet fuel it replaces.
