FBO operator Jet Aviation said it reached a long-term supply agreement with World Fuel Services to sell sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its FBOs in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Bozeman, Montana.

The recent deal adds to the company’s U.S. SAF sales through its FBO at Van Nuys Airport (KVNY), which began in 2019. Jet Aviation, which is a unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), said it plans to continue expanding SAF availability at its facilities. The company also offers SAF at FBOs in Amsterdam and Singapore.

“I am delighted to be able to offer customers traveling to Bozeman, Scottsdale, and Van Nuys the choice to fuel with SAF on-site,” said Richard Layson, vice president of regional FBO operations with Jet Aviation. “As two of the newest additions to our FBO network, Bozeman and Scottsdale represent our continued efforts to offer our customers a range of services. We will continue to partner to increase SAF access and availability across our network in areas where our supplies are easily accessible.”

Jet Aviation said it is committed to contributing to the aviation industry’s efforts toward cutting carbon emissions. The agreement with World Fuel is an example of the collaboration needed for success, the company said.

“We are proud to partner with Jet Aviation in enabling increased access to SAF supply across their FBO network,” said Brad Hurwitz, senior vice president of fuel supply and trading at World Fuel Services. “Through actions such as these, we are collectively showing the power of collaboration in helping achieve the aviation industry’s 2050 net-zero goals. At World Fuel Services, we are focused on broadening the availability of lower carbon alternatives, and we see SAF as a key enabler for taking immediate action to support the decarbonization of air travel.”

Based in Miami, World Fuel Services is a unit of World Kinect Corp. (NYSE: WKC), a global fuel and energy management company.
