Four Atlantic FBOs are certified to NATA Tier 3 standard
Atlantic how has nine locations certified as NATA Green Aviation businesses; four in Colorado have achieved Tier 3. These accreditations sit alongside its other environmental stewardship programmes.
Atlantic's Tier 3-certified Aspen FBO.

In accordance with the National Air Transportation Association's (NATA's) new Sustainability Standard, US FBO chain Atlantic Aviation has achieved Tier 3 Green Aviation Business certification for all four FBOs that it operates in Colorado, joining five other Atlantic Aviation FBOs already certified as Green Aviation Businesses across the US.

NATA's Green Aviation Business Sustainability Standard provides FBOs and other aviation businesses a certification process for pursuing cost-effective options to lower their carbon footprint, including using environmentally friendly energy sources, reduction of waste and the promotion of a sustainability mindset. As part of the certification process, each FBO is required to estimate an annual carbon footprint, and Atlantic Aviation has purchased offsets to achieve carbon-neutral operations for all its certified Green Aviation Businesses based on these footprint estimates.

Atlantic Aviation's Colorado FBOs in Aspen, Montrose, Hayden/Steamboat Springs and Rifle are now Tier 3 certified by NATA, the highest and most demanding level of sustainability certification offered by the organisation. These locations join its FBOs in Fresno, California; Lincoln, Nebraska; Sarasota, Florida; Scottsdale, Arizona; and White Plains, New York, bringing the company's current total number of NATA Certified Green Aviation FBOs to nine, with more locations expected to follow in the months ahead.

“Contributing to environmental sustainability for business aviation is vital to the success of our business, as well as to the positive societal impact of our industry,” says chief commercial and sustainability officer Brian Corbett. “Creating and maintaining industry-leading climate, emissions and energy transition initiatives is a key pillar of our company mission and one we will continue to pursue across the ever-evolving spectrum of opportunities.”

The company is also committed to environmental stewardship through programmes focused on reducing environmental impacts, offsetting remaining emissions and supporting customers in achieving their sustainability goals, including a continuous supply sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at multiple locations.
