Luxaviation Group, one of the largest business aircraft and helicopter operators worldwide headquartered in Luxembourg, announced May 7 significant advancements in its sustainability strategy with the introduction of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) options at its Paris Le Bourget fixed-base operator (FBO) facility.

 



This follows the FBO’s transition to fully electric ground-handling equipment, marking what the company said is a significant step towards sustainable aviation.

 



The FBO is managed under the ExecuJet brand.

 



In line with its commitment to transitioning towards more sustainable air transport, Luxaviation Group provides its clientele with the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint through the use of SAF at its Paris Le Bourget FBO.

 



ExecuJet now supplies a maximum blend of up to 35 percent biofuel with Jet A1 fuel, certified to meet the highest standards.

 



The SAF provided is derived from used cooking oil, a renewable feedstock that is refined through the hydrotreated esters and fatty acids (HEFA) process.

 



When applied in context, for example flying from ExecuJet Paris Le Bourget FBO to ExecuJet Johannesburg FBO on a Global 7500 utilizing a 35 percent SAF blend, customers can reduce their CO2 emissions by approximately 20 tons.

 



This demonstrates the significant impact of utilizing SAF in air travel, a safe and blendable substitute that aligns with Luxaviation’s commitment to sustainable aviation.

 



Additionally, Luxaviation Group said it is continuously exploring opportunities for further technological advancements to streamline processes, enhance operational efficiency and minimize its environmental impact.

 



Its Paris Le Bourget FBO boasts state-of-the-art electronic handling equipment from equivalent airspeed (EAS), including a range of amenities such as push-back assistance, passenger-boarding bridges, luggage belts, ground power units (GPUs), lavatory services, Mototok tugs, and potable-water facilities.

 



“As the industry aligns with global environmental goals and the Business Aviation Commitment on Climate Change, sustainability stands as a cornerstone of Luxaviation Group, paving the way for a more sustainable future in aviation,” said Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group.




“We strive to set new standards and inspire others to join us in embracing innovation to enhance corporate social responsibility,” Hansen added.
