Farnborough Airport offering SAF to all aircraft
Farnborough Airport is now offering sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to all aircraft using the facility.
CEO Simon Geere said: “The introduction of SAF at Farnborough Airport is a major milestone in our sustainability programme, and we are pleased to be able to offer Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel by working with our fuel provider, World Fuel Services.”
Geere said the service would play an integral part in delivering the UK government’s targets for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
In 2018, Farnborough Airport was the first business aviation airport to be awarded carbon neutral status by Airports Council International (ACI) Europe. It has reduced controllable emissions by 70% in the past 10 years.
The Neste MY SAF available at Farnborough Airport is produced 100% from renewable and sustainable waste and residual raw materials, such as used cooking oil and animal fat waste.
