Geneva International Airport to Introduce SAJF in Partnership with Neste

10 October 2017 – Neste has announced a new partnership with Geneva International Airport to introduce sustainable alternative jet fuel (SAJF) for all aircraft operations. The airport has set a sustainability target for at least one percent of annual jet fuel consumption to be renewable-based beginning in late 2018, adding itself to the growing list of “biofuels enabled” airports that can distribute SAJF to any airline at the airport. Sweden’s Halmstad and Karlstad Airports, Norway’s Oslo and Bergen International Airports, and Los Angeles International Airport are now incorporating SAJF deliveries into their overall fuel pools. Other airports, such as Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, are developing plans for SAJF introduction and long-term distribution scale-up.

Geneva is the first airport to implement the Airport Approach model developed by Rocky Mountain Institute’s Carbon War Room (CWR) and SkyNRG, whom approached the airport in 2015 to guide its transition to renewable fuels. Neste will supply airlines operating from Geneva with Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel.
