Executive charter operator FlyingGroup (Booth No. 439), which has bases at Paris Le Bourget, Cannes and Antwerp, has launched a CO2 emission offset program and has thus become a “CO2-neutral” company, according to Belgian organization CO2logic’s standards. FlyingGroup has promised to cut its emissions and educate customers. Customers are not required to sign up, however. The firm claims to be the first charter operator to offer a CO2 offset program in Europe.
Separately, at Antwerp airport, AviaPartner has subcontracted all third-party handling services to FlyingGroup until Sept. 30, 2010. The latter company thus expects to handle some 800 third-party flights at Antwerp airport.
