Gstaad Palace flies sustainably with Swiss


Kloten ZH/Gstaad BE – The luxury hotel Gstaad Palace will purchase sustainable fuel for business flights operated with Swiss International Air Lines (Swiss). With this partnership, Swiss and Gstaad Palace want to reduce CO2 emissions and promote sustainable fuels.

The luxury hotel Gstaad Palace will in future operate its business flights with Swiss exclusively with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Swiss and Gstaad Palace have agreed on a partnership to this effect, the airline informs in a statement. “The Gstaad Palace is taking an absolute pioneering role with its commitment,” Swiss CEO Dieter Vranckx is quoted there. “We hope other companies will follow suit.”

With this partnership, the luxury hotel aims to reduce its CO2 emissions and contribute to the promotion of sustainable fuels. “The Gstaad Palace has been very aware of its responsibility for sustainability issues since it was founded in 1913,” says Andrea Scherz. As a family business with entrepreneurial people, they have always paid attention to resources, explains the General Manager of the Gstaad Palace and Chairman of Leading Hotels of the World. “We are committed to a sustainable and socially responsible approach to nature and the environment, both at home and in the Saanenland region.”

Sustainable fuels for aviation are currently only produced in small quantities. Swiss is involved here in research and pilot projects in technology development together with the Lufthansa Group. ce/hs
