More eco-protests target bizav

Eco-protesters have targeted another European business aviation venue. Campaigners from a Portuguese group called Climáximo broke into Cascais-Tejo Regional Airport on 6 December, damaging a Bombardier Global Express with paint and chaining themselves to its wheels.

In a statement, the group said it denounced “the luxury flights of the super-rich and the criminal hypocrisy of world leaders travelling to the COP28 (climate change conference) in a mode of transport that is the pinnacle of climate injustice.”

Business aircraft owners and operators in and around Brussels are bracing for more protests after a collective of political groups, calling itself ‘Code Red’, called for a “weekend of mass action against aviation” in the Belgian capital from 15 December.
