What better way to demonstrate aviation's ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability than to make available sustainable aviation fuel during NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in Las Vegas? World Fuel Services will supply 16,000 gallons of SAF to Atlantic Aviation’s KLAS location before this year’s event.

In addition, Atlantic Aviation will be making SAF available at its California facilities in Los Angeles (KLAX), Long Beach (KLGB), and Stockton (KSCK) through a book-and-claim process  on the company’s SAF Marketplace.

How It Works

Book and claim is a transactional process that gives customers the option to buy or “claim” SAF gallons not available locally but consumed elsewhere—this is the "book" part of the transaction.

When the customer purchases the SAF gallons, they receive credit for the environmental impact of the renewable fuel dispensed as a drop-in fuel elsewhere in the world—this is the "claim" part of the transaction.

According to Atlantic Aviation, using this method reduces the environmental impact of trucking SAF from refineries. The company's SAF Marketplace enables accounting and verification of claimed SAF purchases that provides customers with emissions reduction receipts as their gallons are dispensed. These receipts summarize key sustainability information and include chain-of-custody documentation with traceability from fuel production to delivery at an Atlantic FBO.

“We are extremely mindful of business aviation’s responsibility to combat climate change and work toward a cleaner environment,” said Brian Corbett, chief commercial and sustainability officer at Atlantic Aviation. “SAF is jet fuel, and currently it is the most meaningful way to make an impact on aviation emissions. Atlantic is committed to doing our part to drive change with simple and reliable advancements across our network.”

Atlantic Aviation’s commitment to sustainability goes beyond SAF availability at nine of its locations. The company is also engaged in ongoing electrification of its ramp vehicles and has solar panels mounted on the hangar roof in Long Beach. In addition, Atlantic is actively using so-called “green building” techniques for hangar construction known as Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) that results in more energy-efficient operations.

Atlantic Aviation will be exhibiting at NBAA-BACE in the North Hall, booth N6216.
