VINCI Airports and Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) have announced the launch of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) services at Toulon Hyères airport in France.

WFS, which has a contract to provide fuel at the VINCI-run airport, will offer SAF to both commercial and business aviation companies at the airport.

The SAF is made from used cooking oil and will be distributed in a 30% blend with conventional kerosene.

The companies will employ a 100% electric refuelling truck to distribute the green fuel.

Compared to fossil fuels, the SAF is said to cut CO2 emissions by more than 80% throughout its entire lifecycle.

By providing SAF to air carriers, VINCI Airports intends to decarbonize aviation (scope 3) in addition to the measures carried out within the area of its own airport activities (scopes 1 and 2).

SAF is currently available at the company's other French airports, including Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne and Grenoble Alpes Isère.

According to the airport operator, companies that use SAF will be eligible for a bonus under the eco-modulation scheme for landing fees.

Toulon Hyères Airport director Basma JARBOUAI said: “This new offer of sustainable aviation fuel with a 100% electric vehicle demonstrates once again VINCI Airports’ commitment to the decarbonisation of air transport, which we are applying here at Toulon Hyères Airport.”
