JetBlue A320 Mobile sustainable fuelBy the end of the year the airline will take delivery of four more similar aircraft with 15 percent sustainable fuel supplied and certified by Air BP.

“This is another example of JetBlue acknowledging that a sustainable future for aviation will require cooperation between all parts of the industry,” observed airline CEO Robin Hayes. “Renewable jet fuel affirms JetBlue’s belief that we can help define our industry’s future path. Our goal is to serve as a market-maker for renewable jet fuel, creating demand and therefore supporting supply. We’re working closely with Airbus to set up infrastructure for more options in the southeast region.”

The aerospace manufacturer confirms its goal is to support industrial production of locally-sourced sustainable aviation fuel: “It is an opportunity to work closely with local stakeholders to scale-up production and the commercialisation of sustainable aviation fuels in the region,” explained Frederic Eychenne, head of New Energies at Airbus. “We are actively seeking ideas to leverage Airbus’ strategy into opportunities for new economic development in Alabama.”

Coincident with the first JetBlue delivery, Airbus says its Mobile manufacturing facility has also received its ISO 14001 environment management system certification covering activities, products and services throughout the plant.
