Luxaviation to support operators with resources during lockdown
The EBASI initiative will allow any participating jet operator to enjoy, where possible, the same pricing that Luxaviation Group gets from suppliers and to take advantage of the Luxaviation Group's payment terms.
Patrick Hansen's Luxaviation will supply resources to smaller operators during this trying period.

Luxaviation Group has launched the European Business Aviation Solidarity Initiative (EBASI), which puts the group's administrative, financial and procurement resources at the service of smaller operators and fellow contenders during the COVID-19 crisis.

For the next three months, the group will support the European business aviation industry by sharing its expertise in procurement, purchasing power and finance resources with business aviation companies for free, allowing them to concentrate on the core operations of their business.

CEO Patrick Hansen says: “As a major player in business aviation, we take our responsibility towards our clients, partners and the wider industry very seriously. We build our business on resources that smaller operators are lacking during lockdown. This initiative allows them to focus their limited resources on keeping their clients and assets safe, which is paramount to keep the industry as healthy as possible.”

The EBASI initiative will allow any participating jet operator to enjoy, where possible, the same pricing that Luxaviation Group gets from suppliers and to take advantage of the Luxaviation Group's payment terms. The initiative also provides operators with the option to get access to all documents required to be sent to authorities and other agencies to reduce costs.

“We also invite the EBAA to join the EBASI initiative,” continues Hansen. “With the financial support of EBAA a 'guarantee fund' could be set up and the CAA, Eurocontrol and various European institutions could make sure that the rescue funds are flowing. If the EBAA were on board with the initiative, we would be very much inclined to put EBASI under their supervision or coordination.”

Luxaviation Group is also inviting suppliers and larger operators that might not yet have been contacted to join the solidarity initiative. The group's initiative currently focuses on Europe but might be extended to other parts of the world.

Operators interested in the initiative can get in touch with Luxaviation Group's chief operations officer, Joao Casimiro, or group president of wholesale, Christophe Lapierre.
