"As the premier FBO in Southern California, Luxivair SBD takes its responsibility to the environment, to our customers, and to the community very seriously..." -Mark Gibbs, Director of Aviation
SAN BERNARDINO, CA, July 16, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Luxivair SBD at San Bernardino International Airport announces a number of significant investments in environmentally-friendly technologies that will help reduce its carbon footprint. The FBO is committed to minimizing the impacts of its operations and to providing a greener alternative to increasingly eco-conscious customers — all without sacrificing the five-star experience it's known for.
New alternative-fueled vehicles and ground support equipment at Luxivair contribute fewer—even zero—emissions. The FBO recently expanded its private rental fleet to include four 2019 Toyota Mirai luxury sedans. The hydrogen fuel-cell cars boast zero emissions and exclusive appeal. Behind the scenes, electric-powered pushback tugs move aircraft away from gates, a new forklift is fueled by propane, and other new ground equipment, including two fuel trucks, is compliant with the highest standards set by South Coast Air Quality Management District and the state of California.
All lighting on the airfield and in large hangar bays has been converted to energy-efficient LEDs, while the FBO's lobby and other amenities were purposefully designed to take advantage of natural light with wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows. Newly installed solar panels help power operations at Luxivair, with no negative effects on the environment.
Luxivair has recognized the importance of eco-friendly business practices since its inception. "As the premier FBO in Southern California, Luxivair SBD takes its responsibility to the environment, to our customers, and to the community very seriously," says Mark Gibbs, Director of Aviation for San Bernardino International Airport. "While the FBO isn't 100% green yet, it's making great strides, and remains committed to doing its part to reduce the effects of its operations while delivering the quality expected by customers."
