Airbus Delivers Delta’s Latest Aircraft Using Sustainable Jet Fuel

Airbus delivered Delta’s 50th A320 Family aircraft by using sustainable jet fuel blends.

The landmark aircraft was an A321, Airbus’ longest-fuselage version in its A320 product line, and the first of 20 for the U.S.-based airline.

Airbus offers this as an option to airlines and as part of its strategy to promote a more regular use of sustainable fuels within the aviation industry.

 In the longer term, Airbus says that it also envisions supporting industrial production of sustainable fuels for aviation in the southeastern U.S. – the broad geographical region in which the Mobile, Alabama production facility for A320 Family jetliners is located.

Sustainable jet fuel, supplied by Air BP and loaded into Delta Air Lines’ A321 aircraft by Signature Flight Support, is certified compliant with the sustainability requirements of the European Union Renewable Energy Directive and the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification.

Delta Air Lines is the second U.S customer to have its aircraft delivered by Airbus from the Mobile final assembly line using sustainable fuel blends. The initial was JetBlue Airways, which received an A321 loaded with 15% sustainable jet fuel in September 2018.

The fuel for Delta Air Lines’ 50th A320 Family aircraft delivered from Mobile was supplied by Air BP and loaded into the jetliner by Signature Flight Support (Airbus’ fuelling services provider in Mobile).

The fuel is certified compliant with the sustainability requirements of the European Union Renewable Energy Directive and the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification.
