JetFly commits Pilatus fleet to P&WC carbon offsets
Jetfly operates one of the greenest fleets in Europe thanks to the low fuel consumption of its Pilatus aircraft. It has now enrolled in the P&WC carbon offsetting programme to automatically compensate emissions as well.
Emissions from JetFly's fleet are now mitigated through P&WC's carbon offset programme.

Fractional owner JetFly has signed up its entire fleet of PT6A and PT6 E-series engine-powered Pilatus aircraft that are enrolled in the Eagle Service Plan (ESP) maintenance programme to Pratt & Whitney Canada's carbon offset service. The service enables operators to contribute to greater environmental sustainability by offsetting the carbon footprint of their aircraft in a simple, cost-effective manner.

“Environmental responsibility is important for JetFly and for our customers. We view the carbon offset service as a simple, elegant means of compensating the emissions of our flights,” says CEO Cédric Lescop. “It also fits within our sustainability goals, and this is one of the reasons why we also fly PT6A and PT6 E-series powered aircraft; they are reliable and fuel efficient engines. We are also strong proponents of the ESP programme, which allows us to accurately plan and manage our maintenance costs, while achieving greater sustainability.”

P&WC's carbon offset service estimates and compensates the aircraft's emissions by sourcing high quality carbon offset credits from South Pole, a globally recognised provider of environmentally sustainable solutions. The carbon offset service supports initiatives that benefit the environment and local communities by creating economic opportunities, such as clean water access, renewable energy and forest conservation projects.

“JetFly's decision to register these engines in our carbon offset service underscores the importance of expanding to our general aviation customer base, the largest market segment for the company,” says vice president, customer service Irene Makris. “Our carbon offset service is a transparent, flexible way for customers to offset the carbon footprint of their aircraft. It is now available for all business jets, helicopters, regional and general aviation turboprop aircraft enrolled in an Eagle Service Plan (ESP) or Fleet Management Program (FMP) maintenance programme.

“Pratt & Whitney has a long-standing commitment to offering environmentally responsible products and solutions to its customers. We are leading a number of initiatives on the sustainability front, from being one of the first companies to certify its engines for use with sustainable aviation fuels to finding ways to minimise the impact of our operations and engines on the environment throughout their entire lifecycle.”
