Jet card and aircraft management company Jet Linx Aviation has signed onto 4Air’s recently launched sustainability rating system for private jet operators
Omaha, Nebraska–based Jet Linx Aviation has signed on to 4Air’s rating system focused on comprehensive sustainability in private aviation. It re-enforces the management and jet card provider’s goal to reduce and mitigate harmful emissions. Jet Linx jet card members and aircraft owners will be able to purchase carbon offset credits. Credits fund projects designed to counterbalance carbon emissions worldwide.
4AIR is the first private aviation participant in the IATA Aviation Carbon Exchange
4AIR has become the first private aviation stakeholder to trade on the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Aviation Carbon Exchange (ACE), a centralized platform where airlines and other aviation stakeholders can trade carbon offsets to reduce their climate impact. It transacted 15,000 carbon offsets on behalf of U.K.-based charter and jet card broker PrivateFly to support a solar-renewable energy project developed in India by the Adani Group.
Directional Aviation-launched 4AIR announced it is partnering with Clay Lacy Aviation to offer its sustainability rating to Clay Lacy managed aircraft while also certifying the company’s facilities in Oxford, CT; Van Nuys, CA; San Diego, CA; Seattle, WA; and Orange County, CA, as carbon-neutral, and awarding their facilities a 4AIR Rating for 2020.
