Austria’s OMV is working with AEG Fuels to make it as easy as possible for airlines to buy sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) alongside their regular jet at Vienna Airport. “AEG will make accessing SAF as simple as possible for aircraft operators while OMV supports robust proof of traceability, compliance and product certification via ISCC PLUS and EU RED sustainability criteria,” the pair said in a May 4 statement. AEG says its airline customers can now access SAF whenever they need it either under term supply contracts, ad hoc demands via AEG’s 24/7 dispatch, instantaneous refueling authorizations via AEG’s web-based Fuel Management platform or using AEG’s mobile app. The Miami-based jet fuel supply and logistics firm has committed to buying all of OMV’s available SAF made by co-processing used cooking oil at its Schwechat refinery and delivered to the airport via an existing jet fuel pipeline. OMV claims its SAF offers more than an 80% lifecycle carbon saving compared to regular fossil jet. The refiner has already signed a 1,500 metric ton/yr direct SAF supply deal with Austrian Airlines, which began in March.
