ExecuJet Introduces First Fully Electric Ground Handling Equipment at Paris Le Bourget FBO

Jan. 17, 2024
ExecuJet France at Paris Le Bourget Airport has become the first ExecuJet FBO with fully electric owned GSE in Europe.

Luxaviation Group, one of the largest business aircraft and helicopter operators worldwide headquartered in Luxembourg, is pleased to announce that ExecuJet France, part of Luxaviation Group, has received fully electric ground support equipment (eGsE) at their FBO in Paris Le Bourget Airport, making it the first ExecuJet FBO with fully electric owned GSE in Europe.

The milestone comes as a move in Luxaviation Group’s target to achieve a 100 percent of GSE electrification in their FBOs by 2030. At their Paris FBO, the list of GSE that are fully electric includes ground power units (GPUs), Mototok pushbacks, air stairs, luggage trucks, lavatory service units, pushback tugs and a potable 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 percent of the target.

“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,” said Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group.

“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,” added Caroline Demsar, deputy CEO of Luxaviation France.

ExecuJet is committed to delivering excellent, state-of-the-art service to its customers while continuously innovating and striving to mitigate the environmental impact of air travel.

Luxaviation Group’s 2030 electrification objective aims to align the group with the sector’s climate change goals to ensure environmental responsibility in business aviation.
