Air BP, the international aviation fuel products and service supplier, is delighted to announce it is an official sponsor of the 2017 Red Bull Air Race World Championship, serving as both the fuel supplier and carbon reduction partner for the 2017 season.
The announcement comes as the first race of the season reached an exciting conclusion on Corniche Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE, this weekend, marking the World Championship’s 75th race. The Edge and MXS race planes, which were fuelled at Al Bateen Executive Airport (where Air BP holds a technical services agreement with ADNOC), performed an amazing display of high-speed, low-altitude racing to the delight of the crowd.
As part of the sponsorship deal, Air BP will work with Red Bull Air Race to offset the carbon emissions associated with aviation fuel during the 2017 race season. This is achieved via an offsetting programme managed by BP Target Neutral, which supports targeted environmental projects around the world that have reduced emissions by an equivalent amount. This gives Red Bull Air Race a carbon neutral fuel footprint for the 2017 season. Environmental issues remain a growing and important feature on Air BP’s agenda and through its environmental solutions offer, the company provides a number of services to help customers work towards a lower carbon future.
