Sedona Airport introduces Neste SAF with Avfuel partnership

The Arizona Sedona-Oak Creek Airport Authority (SOCAA)—in partnership with leading aviation fuel supplier, Avfuel Corporation, and the airport’s fixed base operator (FBO), Red Rock Aviation—now offers sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The airport is Avfuel’s first location to offer SAF in the state of Arizona, positioning it as a leader in eco-conscious aviation operations.

While the fuel is available for sale to general aviation operations, it is also used to support the region’s aerial firefighting activities, providing a cleaner alternative to help protect nearby communities and the surrounding wilderness.

Avfuel’s first truckload of SAF arrived at Red Rock Aviation on 5 June, enabling its customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions immediately and significantly. Moving forward, the FBO will receive a consistent supply of the fuel—about once every two months, or once every 10th delivery of jet fuel.

The fuel—produced by Neste in Long Beach, California, and branded as Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel—averages one of the highest blend ratios available in business aviation to date (30/70 SAF to petroleum-based jet fuel). Each 8,000-gallon truckload delivery provides a 19 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions over the fuel’s lifecycle. That’s the equivalent of taking 4.5 passenger vehicles off the road for a year.

Avfuel, headquartered in Ann Arbor, Mich., has supplied Sedona Airport’s Red Rock Aviation since 2022.
