Gothenburg - Today Swedavia, the largest Swedish airport operator, received its first volume of sustainable aviation fuel for 2017 at Gothenburg Airport. With this delivery, Swedavia takes a next step in reducing its entire business travel footprint from flying through its partnership with Fly Green Fund. The sustainable aviation fuel is produced by AltAir Fuels and supplied by SkyNRG together with Air BP.
Fly Green Fund was launched in 2015 and enables organizations and individuals in the Nordics to reduce their carbon footprint by flying on sustainable aviation fuel. Swedavia joined the fund as launching partner and is also on board as a corporate customer. Other Fly Green Fund partners are SAS, KLM, BRA and EFS.
“By joining Fly Green Fund two years ago we’ve taken an important and concrete step to reduce our climate impact. It’s great to see that our early involvement now really pays off and we’re proud to fly 100% fossil free in 2017,” says Charlotte Ljunggren, Airport Director Gothenburg Landvetter Airport, Swedavia.
“Swedavia’s support demonstrates that an airport can play an important role in making the aviation industry more sustainable. Swedavia has set a great example for airports worldwide and we hope this will motivate other organizations to follow their example and start flying sustainable,” says Theye Veen, CFO SkyNRG.
“We’re grateful that our partner and corporate customer Swedavia decided to continue to buy sustainable aviation fuel to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to developing a sustainable future for aviation,” says Maria Fiskerud, CEO Fly Green Fund. “This is another milestone that gives us the opportunity to tell our story and give more people a chance to get to know us and join the Fly Green Fund.”
