Atlantic Aviation Expands Sustainable Aviation Fuel Availability for NBAA-BACE 2023
CONTRIBUTOR: Atlantic Aviation
Today, Atlantic Aviation announced it is furthering its ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability for business aviation by offering both locally delivered Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), as well as book & claim gallons. Several of Atlantic’s locations will provide the fuel to customers at Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) during this year’s NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas.
World Fuel Services will supply 16,000 gallons of SAF to Atlantic’s LAS location prior to this year’s show. Local SAF will be available to all Atlantic customers throughout the show, as will gallons from Atlantic’s Los Angeles, CA (LAX), Long Beach, CA (LGB), and Stockton, CA (SCK), locations via book & claim through Atlantic Aviation’s SAF Marketplace.
Book & claim is a transactional process that gives customers the option to buy or “claim” SAF gallons that are not available locally but are consumed elsewhere (or “booked”). The purchaser of the SAF gallons receives credit for the environmental impact of the renewable fuel that is dispensed as a drop-in fuel elsewhere in the world (“claimed”). This valuable benefit meaningfully reduces the environmental impact of physically trucking SAF from refineries, while still allowing customers to realize the environmental benefit associated with the SAF when they make their fuel purchases.
The Atlantic Aviation SAF Marketplace enables accounting and verification of claimed SAF purchases and provides customers with emissions reduction receipts as their SAF gallons are dispensed. These receipts summarize key sustainability information and include chain of custody documentation evidencing traceability from fuel production to delivery at an Atlantic FBO.
Atlantic Aviation’s industry-leading commitment to sustainability is significant. In addition to the on-going electrification of its ramp vehicles, hangar roof-mounted solar panels in Long Beach, and LEED certification of several new hangar structures, the company recently added continuous SAF availability at its locations in Long Beach and Stockton, California. This brings the number of Atlantic Aviation facilities holding local inventories of SAF attributes to nine, with more to come. In addition, the company participates in numerous innovative sustainability efforts locally across its network.
“We are extremely mindful of business aviation’s responsibility to combat climate change and work towards a cleaner environment,” said Brian Corbett, Chief Commercial & Sustainability Officer at Atlantic Aviation. “SAF is jet fuel, and currently it is the most meaningful way to make an impact on aviation emissions. Atlantic is committed to doing our part to drive change with simple and reliable advancements across our network.”
Atlantic Aviation will be exhibiting at NBAA-BACE in the North Hall, booth N6216.
