Luxaviation Group announced that ExecuJet France has received fully electric ground handling equipment at their FBO in Paris Le Bourget Airport, making it the first ExecuJet FBO with fully electric owned GHE in Europe. The milestone comes as a move in Luxaviation Group’s target to achieve a 100% of GHE electrification in their FBOs by 2030. At Paris FBO, the list of GHE that are fully electric includes ground power units, mototok, air stairs, luggage truck, toilet service, pushback tug and a portable water truck. It follows their FBOs in Auckland, Melbourne, and Sydney, and sets precedent for the rest of ExecuJet FBOs, whose combined efforts have achieved almost 60% of the target.

Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group, commented: We are very happy to have achieved this milestone, which contributes to our mission to provide outstanding and more sustainable business air travel experiences by fully electrifying our FBOs by 2030.”

Caroline Demsar, Deputy CEO of Luxaviation France, said: “I’d like to extend a personal thank you to the team in ExecuJet Paris for achieving this milestone and becoming our first fully electric European FBO.”
