Melbourne, Florida – May 23, 2024 – Embraer, a global leader in aerospace innovation, today announced a landmark agreement with Avfuel to increase its uptake of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ (SAF) at Melbourne Orlando International Airport (KMLB) to one load per week.

The duo first entered into a SAF agreement in July 2021 in support of Embraer’s flight operations out of MLB. This agreement saw Avfuel deliver one 8,000-gallon truckload of Neste MY SAF per quarter to Sheltair MLB, the FBO that provides storage and handling services for Embraer.

With the updated weekly agreement commencing in April, the extended partnership is expected to result in a total of 240,000 U.S. gallons of SAF delivered to Embraer in 2024, representing a significant increase when compared to previous years. Each truckload will provide a 19 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions, resulting in a 570 metric ton reduction in carbon emission for the year.

“Embraer’s collaboration with Avfuel and Sheltair marks a pivotal milestone in our journey toward net-zero emission flight operations,” said Michael Amalfitano, President and CEO of Embraer Executive Jets. “Our continued investment in SAF demonstrates our dedication to reducing emissions today and driving the industry closer to the net-zero aviation goal by 2050.”

C.R. Sincock, II, Avfuel’s Executive Vice President, said: “Embraer has been a steadfast partner in SAF adoption from day one. We are proud to play a part in its impressive sustainability journey by drastically increasing SAF supply to help fulfill its team’s admirable sustainability goals. The Avfuel team also extends its gratitude to Sheltair for the pivotal role it plays in making this agreement possible with industry-leading fuel safety and handling services.”
