Air BP, Neste offer biojet fuel at airports in Sweden, France

By Air BP | May 20, 2019

Air BP, the international aviation fuel products and services supplier, announced it is offering sustainable aviation fuel to general and business aviation customers and aircraft manufacturers at Stockholm Arlanda airport in Sweden and Caen Carpiquet airport in France. This latest fuel offering comes in support of the industry’s Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuel initiative, launched one year ago, which aims to encourage operators and aircraft manufacturers to use sustainable aviation fuels.

The fuel has been produced by Neste Corp. and supplied by Air BP. The fuel supplied will produce up to 80 percent fewer emissions over its life-cycle compared with conventional jet fuel and is produced from nonpalm renewable and sustainable raw materials.

The availability of sustainable aviation fuel at Arlanda and Caen airports follows the announcement last month that, as part of a collaboration agreement signed in October, Air BP and Neste are ready to supply sustainable aviation fuel to airline and airport customers in Sweden.

“Our industry’s ambitious carbon reduction targets will only be achieved with support from across the entire supply chain,” said Irene Lores, Air BP global sales and marketing director, general aviation. “Initiatives like this give operators direct exposure to sustainable aviation fuel helping us to overcome any obstacles in its adoption. At Air BP we believe it is important to keep working with multiple suppliers, customers and partners, and using expertise from across the global BP organization, to support the commercialization of sustainable aviation fuel.”

Peter Vanacker, Neste president and CEO, said, “We are extremely happy to be able to offer sustainable aviation fuel to the business aviation community. In decreasing emissions from aviation, sustainable aviation fuel represents the only viable alternative to fossil liquid fuels for powering commercial aircraft. Collaborating with Air BP, we can find the best ways of developing robust supply chains to ensure that sustainable aviation fuel is more widely accessible to aviation customers.”

Air BP has supplied its BP biojet branded sustainable aviation fuel to commercial airlines customers at more than 10 airport locations, including at Oslo airport in Norway, where it was the first to supply sustainable aviation fuel through the existing airport fueling infrastructure. In 2018 Bombardier’s demonstration fleet was refueled with BP biojet in Stockholm Arlanda en-route to EBACE and Air BP has also supplied airlines on an ad-hoc basis at airports including Stockholm Bromma, Karlstad and Göteborg Landvetter.
