    More and more we are getting used to the term Sustainable Jet Fuel (SAF). Many airframers are using it to send their planes that will be on static display are various shows. It typically makes a good PR point but is the movement really growing or is this sustainable jet fuel being used only at certain times of the year? Is it a question of availability that is hindering its expansion?

    Bombardier announced today that it received an inaugural shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its Montreal facilities, further reinforcing the company’s commitment to sustainable flying. This step is the first in the company’s plan to secure long-term partnerships with fuel suppliers to deploy SAF to all of its facilities as worldwide supply becomes more readily available.

    "We stand behind our commitment to help promote the increased use of SAF throughout the industry," said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation. "Today, we are proud to offer it for the first time at one of our Canadian facilities and it’s only the beginning. Bombardier is working toward ensuring that the use of these fuels becomes a standard in our day-to-day operations as we do our part to reduce CO2 emissions worldwide and meet the longstanding industry climate pledge."

    Vancouver International Airport could be the next site in Canada that you may find Sustainable Jet Fuel (SAF). BioPort YVR is the brainchild of a collaborative effort between the Canadian government and key stakeholders. A sustainability study will commence and the report is due by March of 2020. The findings will help govern how they will move forward. We will keep an eye on this development. @Kevin
