Airbus To Deliver Aircraft With U.S.-Sourced SAF Blend
Airbus has begun delivery of all aircraft from its U.S. manufacturing facility in Mobile with a blend of U.S.-sourced sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and conventional jet fuel. The initiative, which the company committed to in September 2020 (BBN #61), has a long-term goal of developing a zero-carbon-producing commercial aircraft by 2035. Since the launch of the initiative, American Airlines, Breeze Airways, Delta Air Lines and Spirit Airlines have taken delivery of Airbus aircraft with SAF on board. The remainder of Airbus customer airlines will be added to this list in accordance with delivery schedules. From its U.S. manufacturing facility, Airbus delivers both A220- and A320-family aircraft to U.S.-based customers. Since 2016, the company has delivered 284 Airbus aircraft from Mobile.
