Aircraft resale gains 4Air sustainability focus
With growing scrutiny of private travel, it's increasingly important for buyers and sellers to know the environmental impact of different aircraft. 4Air will help IADA members minimise their footprint.

The International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) and 4Air have partnered to assist the resale industry in being stewards of the planet's climate. Reducing the carbon footprint of business aviation is in the interests of aircraft operators, to protect the global environment and economy.

4Air offers aircraft owners comprehensive full-service sustainability programmes, and now provides the clients of IADA members a free carbon assessment and exclusive discounts on voluntary programmes and regulatory monitoring and compliance services. These clients will be able to use a web-based calculator for assessing their carbon footprints, which will give purchasers an idea of what the carbon impact would be when buying a specific aircraft.

“IADA is joining the fight against climate change in a responsible and sensible way. The partnership with 4Air is a statement that the leaders in the business aviation resale industry place importance on sustainability,” says chair emeritus David Monacell, a partner in CFS Jets. Over the past year, Monacell led the resale association's efforts to focus on sustainability.

“We are pleased that 4Air has joined IADA as a products and services member. This new partnership gives IADA's accredited dealers yet another tool to be the very best counsellors available for buyers and sellers of business aircraft,” he adds.

“With today's growing scrutiny of private travel and its impact on the environment, it's increasingly important to be able to assist buyers and sellers answer questions about prospective aircraft and their environmental impacts,” says 4Air president Kennedy Ricci. “We provide an avenue to help those looking to make meaningful, verified and documented steps in understanding and minimising their environmental footprint. IADA and its members are helping lead the industry to a sustainable future.”

4Air offers comprehensive turnkey solutions for aviation that are easily incorporated into operations of varying sizes and missions. Its reports simplify voluntary and compliance reporting and align with industry standards set by ICAO and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
