Jet2 looks to buy 200m litres of SAF

Holiday company Jet2 has announced it is investing in a plant that will provide more than 200 million litres of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) across a 15-year period.

The firm has said the purchase would represent one of the longest agreed SAF supply deals to date.

The production plant will be built in the Northwest of England in Ellesmere Port and will be developed by Fulcrum Bioenergy.

Expected to be operational by 2027, the plant will turn 600,000 tonnes of unrecyclable household waste into 100 million litres of SAF each year.

Jet2 has said that the SAF it buys will remove 400,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from its output across the 15 years.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2, said: “This significant investment into Fulcrum NorthPoint’s SAF production in the UK shows not only how seriously we take that responsibility but also how committed we are to taking tangible actions to address it.

“Not only will this action help to lower our climate impacts but it represents a major step forward in our transition to net zero too.”

Jeff Ovens Managing Director of Fulcrum Bioenergy, added: “Fulcrum values this new partnership with Jet2 and we look forward to working together to successfully develop Fulcrum NorthPoint and bring low carbon jet fuel to Jet2’s increasingly fuel-efficient aircraft fleet.”
