Bombardier receives inaugural SAF shipment in Montreal

December 2, 2019 |

In Canada, Bombardier announced that it received an inaugural shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its Montreal facilities, further reinforcing the company’s commitment to sustainable flying. This step is the first in the company’s plan to secure long-term partnerships with fuel suppliers to deploy SAF to all of its facilities as worldwide supply becomes more readily available.

Since 2017, Bombardier has leveraged a supply of SAF for use during demonstration flights at its Hartford, CT, facility, home to the company’s customer demonstration operations. In addition, Bombardier flies its entire fleet of demonstration aircraft into major airshows and events to raise industry awareness and to demonstrate that SAF can become a mainstream, drop-in alternative to traditional jet fuel for general aviation aircraft. The company has actively participated in industry events promoting the use of SAF as a regular part of flying business aircraft, notably in Van Nuys, CA, and Farnborough, UK, and most recently at NBAA where SAF was available not just for flying in, but also on-site at the static display for aircraft to fly home.
