Business aviation leaders this week celebrated the record number of airplanes arriving at the industry’s largest European industry event fueled by sustainable alternative jet fuels (SAJF).
In all, 23 aircraft arrived at Geneva Airport for the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) using alternative fuels.
Production and use of the alternate fuels are key to the industry’s Business Aviation Commitment on Climate Change, which, among other aims, seeks to achieve carbon neutral growth from 2020 forward.
Many of the airplanes that flew to EBACE using SAJF arrived from London’s Tag Farnborough Airport, where industry leaders hosted a demonstration day, entitled “Fueling the Future,” on May 18, 2019. “As an industry, we are extremely proud to have delivered a 40 percent fuel efficiency improvement over the last 40 years through improved aircraft. We look forward to building upon these efficiency gains, which directly translate to our industry’s environmental sustainability goals through the growing availability and use of SAJF”, said GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce.
