Why Business Aviation matters - EBAA

Facts

Why Business Aviation matters

A symbol of European excellence, Business Aviation is a dynamic sector which fosters technical innovation and environmental stewardship across the full value chain, from manufacturers to operators. It provides highly skilled jobs and increases economic growth both within the industry and the local communities around the airports.

Business Aviation is a specialised travel solution and investment strategy, enabling people to meet face-to-face when time and efficiency matters most. It allows users to have full control over their schedule and travel to at least three times more destinations in Europe than airlines – many of which are not served by other forms of air travel. This leads to productivity gains, whilst also connecting communities in remote places, boosting their economic growth in the process.
