Embraer has announced an agreement with Avfuel to increase its uptake of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at Melbourne Orlando International Airport (KMLB) to one load per week.

The duo first entered into a SAF agreement in July 2021 in support of Embraer’s flight operations out of MLB. This agreement saw Avfuel deliver one 8,000-gallon truckload of Neste MY SAF per quarter to Sheltair MLB, the FBO that provides storage and handling services for Embraer.

With the updated weekly agreement commencing in April, the extended partnership is expected to result in a total of 240,000 U.S. gallons of SAF delivered to Embraer in 2024, a significant increase when compared to previous years. Each truckload will provide a 19 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions, resulting in a 570 metric ton reduction in carbon emission for the year.
