Jet Blue inks SAF supply agreement with Shell Aviation

March 15, 2023 |

In New York, JetBlue and Shell Aviation announced a new collaboration bringing additional supply of sustainable aviation fuel to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), targeting commencement of delivery in the first half of this year. Under the terms of the agreement, JetBlue is expected to take delivery of 10,000,000 gallons of blended SAF at LAX over the next two years and an option to purchase up to 5,000,000 gallons more in the third year, either at LAX or other airports in JetBlue’s network. “This deal with Shell is a key signal of the growing engagement of the major fuel producers to begin converting conventional jet fuel to SAF,” said Robin Hayes, chief executive officer at JetBlue. “Shell’s involvement, with their expertise in energy markets and logistics, is a validation of the SAF market’s potential and highlights how critical the SAF transition of our hard-to-decarbonize industry is to establishing a more sustainable future of flight.” The additional SAF provided through Shell Aviation at LAX will increase the airline’s SAF supply at the airport, bringing SAF to approximately 15% of JetBlue’s total LAX jet fuel uptake. Shell has announced its ambition to have 10% of its aviation jet fuel sales as SAF by 2030.
