Farnborough Airport’s mission to become a global showcase for airport sustainability and driver of regional economic growth continues to gather pace as it welcomes premium fleet operator Flexjet in setting up its European Tactical Control Centre.
Flexjet has sustainability high on its priorities and includes a complete emissions offset (300% CO2e) for both carbon and non-carbon pollution, at no extra cost to the passenger, thus contributing to Farnborough Airport’s own commitment to sustainability and the UK Government’s targets for net zero carbon emissions.
Flexjet has opened the Tactical Control Centre and office space for its operations and other support teams within Farnborough Airport’s Meadow Gate building, in a move from its previous base in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.
Farnborough Airport’s CEO Simon Geere said, “We’re thrilled to welcome Flexjet to Farnborough Airport. The operator’s exemplary focus on sustainability brings additional value to our airport, not to mention a boost to local employment and fiscal growth in the region. After becoming the first business airport to be awarded carbon neutral status in 2018 and making continued improvements in our environmental performance, this partnership further establishes our position as one of the most modern, well-connected, and sustainably minded airports of its kind.”
Flexjet European managing director, Marine Eugène said, “Our move to Farnborough Airport represents an important milestone in our European expansion and generates a multitude of synergies and benefits for our team and our owners alike. Flexjet and Farnborough Airport have a shared ethos for excellence in both operations and service, so we are delighted to be forging this closer partnership.”
