11/06/2008 FLYING GROUP AIMS TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT

The Flying Group recently partnered with Co2 Logic, a carbon offsetting company, to allow its customers to offset the carbon emissions produced when flying with the Flying Group. In its effort to become a carbon neutral company, Flying Group is also working to sensitize and motivate its own staff, implement an environmentally friendly car policy and invest in green infrastructures. The company is also moving to invest in a greener fleet by constantly renewing its aircraft. For example, they recently purchased a Cessna Citation Columbus due to the aircraft’s lower use of fuel, lower emissions and green production method.
The Flying Group is the first business airline to have calculated its carbon footprint and taken proactive steps in implementing a compensation plan in the Benelux and France regions.
