iAero's Part 121 charter flights certified carbon neutral
The US EPA reports that aircraft contribute 12 per cent of US transportation emissions and account for three per cent of the nation's total greenhouse gas production. iAero has decided the step up to the plate.
iAero Group CEO Robert Caputo says that the company's actions could have a real impact.

iAero Group, a US investment platform to transform and scale high-growth potential companies in the aviation industry and owner of iAero Airways charter airline, iAero Tech airframe MRO and iAero Thrust engine MRO, has initiated its overall sustainability programme by going carbon neutral for all of its commercial Part 121 air charter flights.

Carbon offset is just the first of many initiatives within the iAero Group's sustainability platform called iCAIR. The company will also be inviting and working with all of its partners to join them in supporting its carbon offset programme.

iAero Group is keeping up with the global trend in aviation environmental sustainability. According to the DC-based Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI), the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that aircraft contribute 12 per cent of US transportation emissions and account for three per cent of the nation's total greenhouse gas production. Globally, aviation produced 2.4 per cent of total CO2 emissions in 2018. By 2050, it is estimated that commercial aircraft emissions could triple given the projected growth of passenger air travel and freight.

“With iAero Airway's growing fleet of Boeing 737 and 767 aircraft flying thousands of flight hours each year, we know we can make a positive impact by joining the fight to protect our climate,” says iAero Group CEO Robert Caputo. “Our environmental sustainability actions represent only one part of our overall sustainability strategy, which will also focus on social and economic areas into the future. All of which will directly support our overall purpose of elevating people and places.”

iAero Airways is one of the largest charter airlines in the US, and is based in Greensboro, North Carolina and Miami, Florida. Originally founded in 1997 as Swift Air, the company was acquired by iAero Group in 2019 and rebranded as iAero Airways. The company is an FAA Part 121 certified air carrier.
