SkyNRG and AEG Fuels completed the delivery of sustainable aviation biofuels for the Bombardier Business Aircraft demonstration fleet flying from KLM Jet Center in Amsterdam, Netherlands to the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland.
Netherlands-based SkyNRG, a company that sources, blends and distributes sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) and AEG Fuels, a marketer of aviation jet fuel and related services have completed the delivery of sustainable aviation biofuels for the Bombardier Business Aircraft demonstration fleet flying from KLM Jet Center in Amsterdam, Netherlands to the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland. This is the first delivery of biofuel completed by AEG Fuels.
– We are pleased to be able to provide fuel services for Bombardier Business Aircraft’s demonstration fleet. We are excited for this milestone of delivering high-quality biofuel solutions to our customers, and we are taking the right steps in the development of a rapidly growing renewable fuel business, said Greg Cox, Executive Vice President, General Aviation, AEG Fuels in a statement.
Bombardier, a Canada-headed manufacturer of aircraft and trains has a demonstration fleet consisting of a Learjet 75, Challenger 350, Challenger 650 and Global 6000 aircraft, which completed the successful biofuel-powered flights.
– These biofuel-powered flights further demonstrate Bombardier Business Aircraft’s commitment to sustainability as an integral part of how it conducts its business. Ensuring and demonstrating that our products are capable and ready to support industry objectives on emissions reductions is an important part of this commitment, said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
Produced by US biorefinery AltAir Fuels, the fuel was supplied by SkyNRG and delivered to the KLM Jet Center who performed the refuelling.
– It has been great to work together with AEG Fuels and KLM Jet Center Amsterdam on this project. Bombardier Business Aircraft is a frontrunner in the business aviation market and we hope that these flights will inspire other operators in this segment to start flying on sustainable aviation biofuel as well, said Maarten van Dijk, CEO SkyNRG.
