Amazon Air teams with Shell Aviation on SAF buy contract

July 8, 2020 |

In Washington state, Amazon Air has secured up to six million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) supplied by Shell Aviation and produced by World Energy. With this twelve-month deal, Amazon Air, in its short history, is prioritizing sustainability by bringing SAF into our air operations. World Energy and Shell collaborated to develop a SAF solution to enable businesses to decarbonize aviation. Amazon Air then worked with Shell Aviation to secure the fuel, which will be added to the existing fuel supply at select airports where we operate, to be used by our partners and other carriers. When SAF is used, it has the power to reduce carbon emissions by replacing up to six million gallons of conventional aviation fuel with a sustainable alternative. Amazon Air’s investment in SAF will help to reduce carbon emissions from our operations, while also building confidence in the sustainable fuel industry.

Earlier this year, Amazon trialed SAF on two flights originating from Washington, to Arizona and Connecticut.
