Q8Aviation signs agreement with easyJet to supply its Sustainable Aviation Fuel until 2027
Q8Aviation has agreed a Supply Agreement with easyJet to supply the airline’s Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) requirements over the next five years.
This important agreement confirms the strong commitment of Q8Aviation and easyJet to achieve a net carbon emission reduction in the fuel used in aviation. The agreement forms part of easyJet’s ambitious five-year sustainability roadmap that sets out how it can achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The agreement also confirms the strength of the partnership between Q8Aviation and easyJet. Q8Aviation has been a major supplier of aviation fuel to easyJet for more than 15 years. In 2021, easyJet was the first airline to operate flights out of Gatwick airport using a mixture of SAF and Jet A-1, which was supplied by Q8Aviation using Neste MY SAF.
Q8Aviation General Manager Naser Ben Butain says: “We welcome the opportunity to extend our relationship with easyJet through the supply of Sustainable Aviation Fuel. We are thankful for easyJet’s continued support and looking forward to assist them in meeting their carbon reduction objectives. We understand the need for airlines to secure SAF supply to meet their 2025 SAF commitments and we look forward to helping more of our customers achieve this.”
David Morgan, Chief Operations Officer, at easyJet, says:
“easyJet has today published our net zero roadmap which shows how easyJet can get to net zero by 2050. Using SAF forms an important part of that plan, and so we are pleased to confirm that we have contracted all SAF volumes reflected in the roadmap for the next five years with our fuel partner Q8Aviation. We will continue to use SAF as required, until our fleet has been fully transitioned to zero carbon emission aircraft, to achieve material lifecycle carbon emissions reductions in comparison to kerosene and look forward to putting this in place with Q8Aviation.”
