A4A Lauds Formation Of The Midwest Aviation Sustainable Biofuels Initiative

Industry Organization Supports Multiple Regional Initiatives

Airlines for America (A4A) on Wednesday came out in strong support of the formation of the Midwest Aviation Sustainable Biofuels Initiative (MASBI) to accelerate the commercial viability and deployment of alternative aviation fuel in the United States.

"(Wednesday's) announcement further demonstrates that the airline industry is committed to public-private partnerships to turn advanced biofuels for aviation into reality, enhancing America's energy security, building on our environmental commitment and creating U.S. jobs," said A4A President and CEO Nicholas E. Calio (pictured). "We commend A4A member United Airlines and the other industry partners of MASBI for advancing sustainable aviation biofuels in the Midwest."

A4A is committed to the development and deployment of sustainable alternative fuels for use in jet aircraft. A4A co-founded and co-leads the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI) and the Farm to Fly initiative, both of which are working to hasten the development and deployment of commercially viable, environmentally preferred alternative jet fuels.

In addition to supporting MASBI, A4A participated in and supported a previous regional initiative, Sustainable Aviation Fuels Northwest (SAFN), which developed a groundbreaking assessment of aviation alternative fuel pathways in the Pacific Northwest. Both projects aim to establish regional supply chains and support rural development.
