Air bp, the international aviation fuel products and service supplier, is collaborating with Airbus to supply sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for delivery flights from Airbus’ facility at Hamburg Finkenwerder Airport (XFW/EDHI).
The first aircraft are two Air Transat A321LR destined for Montreal, Canada. To enable SAF to be used for these flights, Air bp established a supply route, including transportation and storage facilities at the airport.
As part of this agreement, Air bp also supplied SAF for transportation flights from Hamburg by the Airbus A300-600ST Beluga in December 2019. Martin Thomsen, chief executive Air bp, said: “We are excited to extend our collaboration with Airbus to fuel delivery flights from Hamburg for the first time with sustainable aviation fuel, building on previous delivery flights from Mobile, Alabama. bp’s ambition is to be a net zero company by 2050 or sooner, and to help the world to get to net zero.”
