Into-plane fuelling company and AOA Gold Member, North Air delivered fuel partly made from waste-based sustainable feedstocks such as cooking oil for the first Airbus Beluga flight from Hawarden Airport in North Wales to use sustainable aviation fuel

After assisting in early trials, North Air’s involvement in April’s pioneering Beluga flight was the beginning of the company’s first regular fuelling using sustainable fuel to a UK airport. The company provides into-plane fuelling at 17 airports around the country.

North Air CEO, David Atherton, said the company was extremely proud to have facilitated the delivery of sustainable aviation fuel at Hawarden, but he cautioned that wider take-up of the fuel across UK airports would be constrained in the short term by cost and supply, with supply being the main obstacle at present.
