We are excited to announce a new strategic partnership with Victor, one of the world’s leading ‘on-demand’ marketplaces for private jet charters, with sister company BP Ventures also set to invest US$10 million in the company.
The partnership will see us become the preferred fuel supplier for flights arranged via the Victor digital platform at Air BP locations. Using its proprietary digital platform, Victor will also trial an initiative giving customers the chance to offset carbon emissions from their Victor-booked flights via BP Target Neutral.
Digital technologies are playing a vital role in transforming the business aviation sector. This collaboration brings Air BP together with a leader in this emerging space in the industry, combining strengths and capabilities to support our customers as they work towards a lower carbon future.Jon Platt, Chief Executive Officer, Air BP.
This marks BP Ventures’ fifth deal in less than a year following Fulcrum Bioenergy, Drover, BiSN and, most recently, Beyond Limits, demonstrating the company’s commitment to helping advance the development of cutting edge technologies which are complementary to the wider BP business.
