VINCI Airports and Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) have launched a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) service at Toulon Hyères Airport.

The service is available to commercial and business aviation companies and the fuel will be distributed in a 30% blend mixed with conventional kerosene.

To distribute the fuel, an electric refuelling truck has been chosen for the service.

Basma Jarbouai, Director of Toulon Hyères Airport, said: “This new offer of sustainable aviation fuel with a 100% electric vehicle demonstrates once again VINCI Airports' commitment to the decarbonisation of air transport, which we are applying here at Toulon Hyères Airport.”

Produced from used cooking oil, SAF reduces CO2 emissions by 80% over its lifecycle compared to fossil fuel.

By offering SAF to airlines, VINCI Airports is decarbonising aviation alongside actions carried out within the scope of its own airport activities.
