Air Charter Scotland are partnering with South Pole on global energy initiatives.

Air Charter Scotland, is proud to be supporting Global sustainability provider, South Pole as part of the projects in emission reduction, renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable land-use they help facilitate..

It is teaming with global sustainability consultancy South Pole on two energy projects. The first is to capture and repurpose harmful methane emissions to create a cleaner energy in Banga, Thailand.

In the forests at the foot of the Phu Pan hills, cassava starch is processed and grown. These starch processing factories place a significant strain on the environment. Large amounts of water are needed to wash the cassava; once used this wastewater is left in open-air lagoons where it releases pungent-smelling methane emissions. As well as smelling bad, methane is a greenhouse gas 25-26 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

The Bangna Biogas Project upgrades how the wastewater is treated by replacing an old open lagoon with a modern, environmentally-friendly system. This means that instead of escaping into the atmosphere, the methane is captured. This is then used as a sustainable energy source to generate electricity, which can be used to power the factory or be sold to the national power grid.

The second energy project is a solar solution in Siam, Thailand. Solar is poised to play a crucial role in Thailand’s clean energy transition. The Siam Solar Energy 1 project bundles 10 solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants. This project reduces Thailand’s reliance on imported energy and drives both national and regional economic growth. Aside from meeting the energy demands of regional Thai communities, the project improves local infrastructure and provides employment opportunities for local skilled and unskilled workers in manufacturing, installation, operation and maintenance of equipment.

Air Charter Scotland has committed to financing ongoing positive impact initiatives both in the UK and globally as part of our to progress towards a sustainable future for the business.

As a leader in private charter, we understand that to drive a sustainable long-term recovery in the industry and to remain a priority across aviation’s value chain; we must continue to facilitate the global mission to achieve net zero by 2050.

The winter season is one of the best times to visit Europe, offering travellers a much-needed injection of culture, culinary treats and spectacular architecture. Private jets are the perfect way to travel during this season, providing an option flexible enough to schedule around inclement weather. 

Air Charter Scotland can fly you directly to an array of cities, perfect for exploring at this time of year, whether it be for a Christmas getaway or a winter trip. Looking for inspiration? 

Vienna, Austria 

Voted the best city in Europe last year in the Readers’ choice awards, the Austrian capital makes for a great winter escape. Famous for its ‘ball season’ between November and January, seasoned waltzers can head to the conservative Philharmonic Ball, or enjoy the outdoor simulcasts of the coveted opera. You can also indulge in gluhwein whilst you tour the grounds of the Schӧnbrunn Palace and St Charles Church.

Tallinn, Estonia

Protected under UNESCO, the Estonian capital is one of Europe’s best preserved medieval cities, and is famously known for its narrow cobblestone streets, turreted castles and grand merchants houses. Enjoy a Tallinn craft beer whilst taking in the scenery from one of the city’s famous viewing points, including the Kohutsa platform where you can view the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, one of Tallinn’s most distinctive buildings. 

Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations, especially in winter when the Hungarian Capital truly comes to life. See the Hungarian Parliament surrounded by ice drifts on the Danube, or take a dip in the famous Széchenyi Thermal Baths. Budapest is also home to one of the oldest and largest ice rinks in Europe, nestled directly in front of the Vajdahunyad Castle, the perfect way to end a day of sightseeing. 

Ljubljana, Slovenia 

Set amongst grand lakes and mountains, Slovenia’s capital city is a real-life fairytale in the winter season, with the Christmas lights making an idyllic backdrop against the city’s baroque architecture. Enjoy a glass of crisp local wine next to the famous Ljubljana River, whilst taking in the culture in the country’s political and cultural hub. 

Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh really shines in the winter months as Christmas and Hogmanay celebrations come together. The traditional Christmas market is nestled in the heart of the city beneath the foliage of East Princess Street Gardens and adjacent to the Scottish National Gallery. 

Scotland’s answer to Winter Wonderland, you can enjoy all manners of festive treats, from unique baubles to creamy hot chocolates. After dark, head to the Royal Botanic Garden to sip cider and marvel at its Christmas illuminations.  

Berlin, Germany

Germany is famous around the globe for its Christmas markets, and Berlin is redefining the age-old tradition of advent shopping by boasting their own renowned alternative markets, perfect if you’re looking for something a little less traditional. If you’re looking for a cultured city break, you can take a tour around the Brandenburg gate, or visit Germany’s parliament building, the Reichstag.
