NEED TO KNOW The world’s largest FBO group is expanding the sale of Sustainable Aviation Fuel to more locations

SIGNATURE FLIGHT SUPPORT SUSTAINABILITY BEFORE TAKEOFF Last year, Signature Flight Support became the first FBO group to offer a supply of SAF on a permanent basis, starting with San Francisco International Airport and London’s Luton Airport. That’s now been extended to Austin Bergstrom International Airport, Houston Hobby Airport, Oakland International Airport and Seattle King County International Airport at Boeing Field. It’s good news for private flyers. With over 200 locations worldwide, the company is positioned to be a major force in expanding the availability of SAF. Tony Lefebvre, interim CEO for Signature, says, “Prior to establishing a permanent

supply of SAF, FBOs have only been able to provide a few thousand gallons at one time, typically by request of an individual aircraft operator or for a one-off event.” The fuel program is just part of the company’s road map towards net-zero carbon emissions. It includes Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) buildings, including hangars and terminals for passengers, tenants and administrative support teams. There is even a planned transition to electric vehicles as the company works towards net-zero emissions by 2050. signatureflight.com
