European business aircraft charter and management firm Elit’Avia introduced a new jet card program that offers carbon-neutral charter flights. To ensure the carbon neutrality of its service, Elit’Avia calculates the carbon-dioxide emissions produced by each flight and offsets that amount by purchasing carbon credits and making investments in environmental projects around the world.
The company said its new Elit’Avia Green Card is the ideal solution for environmentally conscious clients who fly between 25 and 100 hours per year and don't want long-term contracts or membership fees. Instead, the program offers fixed hourly rates and fully refundable flight hours that never expire. Headquartered in Malta, Elit’Avia operates in Europe, northern Afric,a and the Middle East, and it manages a mixed fleet of 25 business and cargo aircraft.
“The Elit’Avia Green Card responds directly to the needs and values of today’s private aviation charter client,” said Elit’Avia CEO Michel Coulomb. “All flights are certified carbon-neutral, which is now a baseline requirement for a growing number of travelers. Plus, the convenience, transparency, and cost-efficiency of the jet card model are well established.”
“Our clients want to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. And thanks to our industry expertise, we can facilitate that process,” Coulomb added. “Not only is this doing the right thing for the environment, it’s good for business because it has become a competitive advantage.”
