Gus Paterson, chief operating officer at PASL and Centreline’s accountable manager, says: “Our partnership with Air bp is a sustainable step forward for the PASL group as we remain committed to playing our part in reducing the impact aviation has on global carbon emissions. By offering our charter clients a SAF option we are making progress in being a carbon negative in air operation by 2025, as well as providing our FBO clients with the opportunity to make sustainable choices when refueling in Bristol.”
With aviation currently accounting for 2% to 3% of manmade global carbon emissions, Air bp were the first fuel supplier to have into-plane fueling operations certified as carbon neutral, and were involved in fueling the first SAF flight by an airline in February 2008.
David Mosley, sustainability manager at Air bp, says: “At Air bp, achieving a low carbon future for aviation is a challenge we embrace wholeheartedly. We are delighted to support Centreline in supplying sustainable aviation fuel to their customers as they work towards reducing their emissions.”
Richard Morrison, FBO manager at Centreline, added: “We are pleased to now offer SAF for retail at Centreline. As SAF is blended with fossil jet fuel and does not require special equipment changes, it is a clean substitute that reduces the impact of air travel. With the same characteristics and specifications as fossil jet fuel, we are pleased to offer an efficient lower carbon alternative to our customers.”
Simon Earles, sustainability and corporate affairs director at Bristol Airport, commented: “We are delighted Centreline has partnered with Air BP to bring sustainable aviation fuel in to Bristol Airport. We welcome their leadership and are committed to working with our airlines and other partners to accelerate our journey towards Net Zero.”
