Private jet charter broker Chapman Freeborn now provides complementary participation for its Jet Membership program clients in 4AIR, an independent provider of aviation sustainability solutions.

Carbon emissions from their flights will automatically be offset as part of the 4AIR program at no extra cost.

Previously, Jet Membership clients had the choice of opting into the service on a flight-by-flight basis for an additional charge.

“We are thrilled to advance our commitment to high-quality carbon reduction efforts with 4AIR and to not only invite our U.S. clients to be part of that commitment but make it both effortless and rewarding for them to do so,” said David McCown, President – Americas of Chapman Freeborn.

He added, “The reduction of carbon emissions is the hottest topic in the private aviation industry, and we don’t expect it to cool down any time soon.”

As per the emissions offsetting program, a monthly report of each jet card member’s flight activity will be provided to 4AIR by Chapman Freeborn to calculate emissions.

Chapman clients will receive an annual emissions report from 4AIR detailing the emission certificates purchased and retired on their behalf, allowing them to retain those results.

Nearly one-third (30.9%) of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers say sustainability programs will be important the next time they select a flight provider.

However, over 75% want the cost included in its base price.

The U.K.-based broker launched its dynamic pricing membership in 2023.
