Luxaviation goes greener at Le Bourget
In line with its commitment to transitioning towards more sustainable air transport, Luxaviation now enables clients to reduce their carbon footprint through the use of SAF at its Paris Le Bourget FBO.
Luxaviation is offering SAF at its Paris Le Bourget FBO, ExecuJet Paris.

Luxaviation Group has made significant advancements in its sustainability strategy with the introduction of SAF options at its Paris Le Bourget FBO facility. This follows the FBO's transition to fully electric ground handling equipment in January this year. The FBO is managed under the ExecuJet brand.

ExecuJet Paris now supplies a maximum blend of up to 35 per cent biofuel with Jet A1 fuel, certified to meet the highest standards. The SAF provided is derived from used cooking oil, a renewable feedstock that is refined through the hydrotreated esters and fatty acids (HEFA) process.

When applied in context, flying from ExecuJet Paris to ExecuJet's Johannesburg FBO on a Global 7500 utilising a 35 per cent blend of SAF/Jet A1fuel, customers can reduce their CO2 emissions by approximately 20 tons. This demonstrates the significant impact of utilising SAF in air travel.

Additionally, Luxaviation is continuously exploring opportunities for further technological advancements to streamline processes, enhance operational efficiency and minimise its environmental impact. Its Paris Le Bourget FBO already boasts electric handling equipment, including a range of amenities such as push back assistance, passenger boarding bridges, luggage belts, ground power units, lavatory services, Mototok tugs and potable water facilities.

CEO Patrick Hansen says: "As the industry aligns with global environmental goals and the Business Aviation Commitment on Climate Change, sustainability stands as a cornerstone of Luxaviation Group, paving the way for a more sustainable future in aviation. We strive to set new standards and inspire others to join us in embracing innovation to enhance corporate social responsibility."
