Sustainable Aviation Fuel is now available at Bremen Airport. Airbus is now using SAF for the departures of its Beluga transport aircraft in Bremen.
The airport has set up a tank farm for the sustainable fuel. There is also a fixed supply chain, which is ensured in cooperation with World Fuel Services. Airbus is the first company to use the new infrastructure at Bremen Airport. The SAF provider World Fuel Services will in future offer all customers refueling with sustainable fuel from Neste at Bremen Airport. Airbus already uses SAF for its beluga and delivery flights at other locations around the world. With the Beluga transport aircraft, Airbus transports large components between the individual production plants in Europe.
“The SAF project kept the employees at the airport busy for a total of almost two years. The conversion of the tank farm took more than a year and the development of the supply chain also took some time, as SAF is currently not available in large quantities," says Marc Cezanne, Managing Director of Bremen Airport. "We are all the more pleased that we can now offer SAF at Bremen Airport and that with Airbus Bremen we have our first customer for the 'green kerosene' directly at the airport. We would also like to thank the city of Bremen, which actively supported us in this flagship project. We are now giving airlines and general aviation the opportunity to fly from Bremen with significantly reduced emissions.”
