Bringing sustainable air travel to the Lone Star State.
Together, Neste and Signature Flight Support have safely delivered commercial volimes of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and Houston-Hobby Airport (HOU) in Texas, as well as the Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC).
The low carbon, renewable jet fuel supplied to the two Texas airports came from a local refinery in Galena Park, Texas, where Neste is working with a Houston-based partner to safely complete the final steps of the sustainable aviation fuel processing operations.
“Sustainable aviation fuel is driving one of the biggest transformations in the business aviation industry that we've seen in a long time," says Chris Cooper, Vice President of Renewable Aviation for Neste in North America. "It's as impactful as the first Boeing 747 flight 40 years ago, which ushered in a new era of affordable air travel. Together, Neste and Signature Flight Support are creating a future where business aviation passengers can fly with a much smaller carbon footprint by revolutionizing what powers aircraft.”
Neste and Signature Flight Support formed a strategic partnership to create an efficient, continuous supply of SAF for business aviation in the United States and beyond. Neste has been at the vanguard of sustainable aviation fuel production for nearly a decade and the company expects to have the capacity to produce some 515 million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel annually by 2023.
Recently, Neste and Signature Flight Support achieved the important milestone of safely delivering one million gallons of SAF to private aircraft at the San Francisco Int’l Airport.
