The Bombardier Business Aircraft demonstration fleet flew from KLM Jet Center in Amsterdam, Netherlands to EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland, using sustainable aviation biofuels from SkyNRG and AEG Fuels.
Bombardier’s Learjet 75, Challenger 350, Challenger 650, and Global 6000 aircraft completed the successful biofuel-powered flights. The fuel, which is produced by biorefinery AltAir Fuels, was supplied by SkyNRG and delivered to the KLM Jet Center who performed the re-fueling.
“We are pleased to be able to provide fuel services for Bombardier Business Aircraft’s demonstration fleet. We are excited for this milestone of delivering high-quality biofuel solutions to our customers, and we are taking the right steps in the development of a rapidly growing renewable fuel business. These sustainable fuels are produced from renewable resources and are considered ‘drop in’ fuels that blend with traditional fossil fuels without any equipment changes. The change to biofuels reduces carbon dioxide emissions resulting in less pollution,” said Greg Cox, Executive Vice President, General Aviation, AEG Fuels.
“These biofuel-powered flights further demonstrate Bombardier Business Aircraft’s commitment to sustainability as an integral part of how it conducts its business,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
“Ensuring and demonstrating that our products are capable and ready to support industry objectives on emissions reductions is an important part of this commitment.”
