Air BP has focused on the expansion of its pioneering carbon offset program for business aviation in Brazil during the 2019 edition of LABACE, the business aviation airshow in Latin America.
The program will be extended to two of Voa São Paulo’s airports, a Brazilian private airport administration consortium, which are now part of Air BP’s supply network. Jundiaí and Amarais airports are the first to join the program and there is the potential to expand the offer to more of Voa São Paulo’s locations in the future.
“We are very proud of this new collaboration with Voa São Paulo. Our carbon offset program, which complements our existing focus on customer service and safety in operations, is a significant step towards making Brazilian business aviation more sustainable,” said Ricardo Paganini, general manager, Air BP South America.
Air BP launched its carbon offsetting offer for business aviation in Brazil in 2018. Its first customer, business aircraft management company Avantto, offset more than 1,000 tons of carbon emissions from Jun. 18 to May 2019 – the equivalent of 1,588 trips from São Paulo to Angra dos Reis. The agreement with Avantto has been renewed for another year, enabling customers to offset the emissions related to the fuel supplied to the company by Air BP.
