luxaviation launches solidarity initiative for business aviation industry

March 20, 2020

Luxaviation Group has launched the European Business Aviation Solidarity Initiative (EBASI), a solidarity endeavour which puts the Group’s administrative, financial and procurement resources at the service of smaller and operators and fellow contenders during the crisis.
During the next three months, Luxaviation Group will support the European aviation industry by sharing some of its expertise in procurement, purchasing power and finance resources to operators for free, helping smaller or fellow business aviation companies to concentrate on their core business.
Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group says: “As a major group we have to take our responsibility towards our clients, partners and the industry in general. We build our business on resources that smaller operators are lacking during lockdown. This initiative allows them to focus their limited resources on keeping their clients and assets safe, which is paramount to keep the industry as healthy as possible.”
The EBASI initiative shall allow any participating jet operator, to enjoy where possible the same pricing that Luxaviation Group gets from suppliers as well as to take advantage of the Luxaviation Group’s payment terms. It also provides operators with the possibility to get access to all documents required to be sent to authorities and other agencies alike to reduce costs.
“We also invite EBAA to join the EBASI initiative”, says Patrick Hansen, “With the financial support of EBAA a ‘guarantee fund’ could be set up and CAA, Eurocontrol and various European Institutions could make sure that the rescue funds are flowing. In case EBAA was ready and on-board the initiative, we would be very much inclined to put EBASI under their supervision or coordination.”
Luxaviation Group also invites suppliers and larger operators that might not have been contacted to join the solidarity initiative. The Group’s initiative focuses currently on Europe but might be extended to other parts of the world.
Operators interested in the initiative get in touch with our Chief Operations Officer, Joao Casimiro or Group President of Wholesale, Christophe Lapierre at ebasi@luxaviation.com.
