VistaJet has announced an agreement with AEG Fuels to purchase Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) produced by OMV at Vienna International Airport.
VistaJet’s commitment to replace over 200,000 USG of conventional jet fuel consumption with a blended SAF is expected to generate over 165,000 kg of CO2 reduction — an 80% emissions improvement over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to conventional jet fuel. This SAF is produced in compliance with the EU Renewable Energy Directive (EU RED).
Founded in 2004, VistaJet revolutionized business aviation from its inception, providing access to a global fleet without the need to own an aircraft. This new way to fly means fewer aircraft produced, and also reduced repositioning flights, as the fleet is managed on a floating model instead of the wasteful hub-and-spoke system.
Private aviation has seen unprecedented growth since the pandemic, as travel continues to be a necessity for companies to ensure business continuity and point-to-point connections on fuel-efficient smaller aircraft. VistaJet is simultaneously making every effort to reduce the industry’s impact on the environment.
Proving its commitment to change, in April 2021 VistaJet pledged to be fully carbon neutral across its entire business by 2025. Urging the aviation industry to step up and do its part to combat climate change, VistaJet’s commitment is also aimed at pushing the sector to go further than the current goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 set by the civil aviation industry bodies and IATA. Only a multi-party contribution can reduce impact in scale and bring about an industry-wide transformation to drive systemic transformation.
