Canadian FBO operator SkyService has become the first in Canada to offer sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and its in-house fractional AirSprint will be its first customer. All its customers will have access to the fuel, which is produced by World Fuel Services and is blended 30/70 with regular Jet A. The net result is a 20 percent reduction in emissions over the life of an aircraft. Skyservice’s flagship Toronto FBO got the first shipment.
“We are aggressively seeking to lessen the impact of our operations on the environment and offering low-carbon fuels is one of many ways we are doing that,” said Benjamin Murray, President & CEO of Skyservice. “Our objective is to achieve carbon neutrality at Skyservice by 2050. By offering SAF, we can effectively contribute to fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions reduction goals as set out by the International Civil Aviation Organization and advance our own corporate environmental protection mission.”
