Port of Seattle and 13 Airlines Announce Partnership to Plan for Making Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuel Available at Sea-Tac Airport

4 May 2018 – The Port of Seattle along with 13 airlines announced they have partnered to create a work plan for providing sustainable alternative jet fuel (SAJF) to all airlines at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac), with the goal of replacing 10 percent of the traditional jet fuel supply within 10 years and increasing to 50 percent by 2050. Airlines typically use approximately 700 million gallons of fuel per year at Sea-Tac.

This effort will continue the Port of Seattle’s work to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and assist airlines in transitioning to SAJF. In addition to planning for the use of SAJF, the work will also explore other mechanisms that could reduce carbon and emissions, including technology, operations, infrastructure, and future aircraft technology. The airlines in the partnership include Alaska Airlines, ANA, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, Horizon Air, Icelandair, Lufthansa, Spirit Airlines, ABX Air, Air Transport International, Atlas Air, Lufthansa Cargo, and Singapore Airlines Cargo.
