Our philosophy

Sustainable Economic Growth

We are dedicated to reducing pollution, inefficiency, waste, overproduction, and overconsumption. Our commitment lies in fostering economic development linked to the quality of efficiency rather than sheer quantity of products and consumption, as we strive to replace polluting practices with environmentally friendly alternatives. This is all about humanity, not the planet, and for present generations, not only the future ones.

Efficiency over Degrowth

We advocate for doing better with less, placing a strong emphasis on the efficient use of resources. We firmly oppose deliberate economic degrowth that might compromise established social wealth in areas like education, health, and pensions due to inefficient resource utilization.

Environmental Responsibility in Aviation

Having conceived SKY2SHARE in a sustainable way, we acknowledge the environmental impact of aviation and position ourselves as leaders in addressing these concerns. We also recognize the economic imperative and the related business opportunity in replacing polluting practices with cleaner alternatives, particularly in business aviation. Anticipating the emergence of environmentally conscious corporate customers, and thanks to business aviation’s relatively small needs of feedstocks compared to commercial aviation’s ones, we aim to pioneer the shift towards a fully decarbonised business air mobility. We see decarbonisation as a consequence of modernization, not the end objectif.

Innovation and Technological Solutions

We value innovation and existing new technological advancements as integral to our mission. Operating with a commitment to reduce CO2 emissions while substantially removing them via Direct Air Capture, investing in hybrid-electric propulsion, and eventually utilizing novel fuels, we see technology as a key driver toward achieving environmental sustainability in business air travel.

Leadership team

Selim Franko

CEO

As an entrepreneur, my inner voice has always directed me towards the creation of economic value with precision and care in its approach towards all parties. I took advantage of the pressing need for the energy transition to initiate with my partners a very specific model of decarbonization of the business aviation, which is both one of the most difficult sectors to decarbonize, and an essential multiplier tool of well-being and value creation. SKY2SHARE is the result of this inner voice which wants to demonstrate in an exemplary manner that sustainable economic growth is achievable right now.

At easyJet, I am proud to have helped democratize aviation. Still over the years, I began to sense that something wasn’t quite right. Always more must have an end, right? SKY2SHARE is a new way of approaching the issue with an obsession in preserving our planet, our only home, as much as possible.

Stefano Ganassi

COO & CSO

I flew in Indonesia for many years, and saw people in isolated communities who needed food, medical care, and an essential lifeline to the outside world. I have also seen tropical beaches filled with plastic and forests burning. This is why I am today obsessed with sustainability and why I obtained a Masters in Sustainable Air Transport. I am committed to SKY2SHARE to combine business aviation, vital for the economy, with sustainability, just as essential for responsible growth. We demonstrate that it is possible to fly while respecting the resources that nature offers us.
