AEG Fuels will provide sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) produced by OMV to charter provider VistaJet at Vienna International Airport in Austria under an agreement announced by the companies yesterday. The agreement builds on VistaJet’s April 2021 commitment to be carbon neutral by 2025.
That commitment calls for VistaJet to replace more than 200,000 U.S. gallons of conventional jet fuel consumption with a blended SAF, which is expected to generate more than 165,000 kilograms of CO2 reduction. Other carbon reduction activities by VistaJet have included using artificial intelligence to maximize fleet optimization and working to increase the adoption of carbon offsetting among the provider’s members by more than 85 percent.
“Together as an industry we can reshape the way we conduct business,” said VistaJet founder and chairman Thomas Flohr. “At VistaJet, we are very proud of the progress we have made and we hope that others will adopt our recommendations. Businesses are rightfully being held accountable for their environmental impact and our agreement with AEG Fuels not only helps in reducing [greenhouse gas] emissions but goes hand in hand with our ongoing efforts to practice higher sustainability to protect the local communities in the countries we operate, spanning 96 percent of the world.”
