EBAA Says Business Jet Ban will Halt Sustainable Future

The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) said banning business jets will halt the sustainable future of aviation, calling on governments and business aviation leaders stand united to come up with real solutions.

EBAA said in a statement that the countermeasures from the current political mainstream including banning or increasing taxation could deter the entire industry from operating and developing sustainable technologies.

Business aviation companies are developing all types of technological improvements such as Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), electric aircraft, hydrogen propelled engines, power-to-liquid and more.

“It is now time governments and business aviation leaders stand united behind a plan that will help us actually implement real solutions with real reductions.” said the EBAA.

It said business aviation has played an important part in the first phase of the pandemic, serving as a “lifeline for communities,” be it for medical transport or as a tool to help governments and businesses.

It also pointed out that the European Business aviation industry employs almost 400,000 people and contributes close to 90 billion EURO to the European GDP annually.

“Business aviation is there when connections need to be made most direly. It will continue to fulfill that role, to the benefit of Europe and Europeans, for many more years to come,” it said.
