LVMH group chief executive Bernard Arnault has decided to sell his group’s private jet so it will no longer be tracked online.

ECOLOGY – This summer, many stars and other billionaires were spied on for the use of private planes by thousands of Internet users, attentive to the use made of these particularly polluting devices. But for Bernard Arnault, the ordeal is over.

Very fashionable since its creation, the Instagram account “laviondebernard”, who reported all the movements of the LVMH chief aboard his private plane, no longer has his favorite traveler on his radar. The reason ? The French billionaire has decided to sell the private jet of his group.

On September 10, the account dedicated to the movements of this F-GVMA type device was also moved by the disappearance of the machine”, removed from the French aircraft register “. Without knowing the reason for this disappearance -after a summer in which the subject of private jets was omnipresent in the news-, the author of the story then wondered if the plane had been sold or simply re-registered in a country where the identity of the owner could be kept secret.

Since then, no trace of the famous F-GVMA, despite a significant assessment for the month of May 2022 alone: ​​176 tons of CO2 released into the atmosphere, where on average, the annual carbon footprint of the French represents 11 tons. CO2 equivalent per inhabitant. A true ecological disaster pointed out by this Instagram account, in the same way as the flights of the PSG player Lionel Messi or those of the TotalEnergies company.

And if Elon Musk himself had complained about being tracked, to the point of offering a sum of money to the creator of the “Elonjet” account to stop following him, Bernard Arnault found a much more discreet and effective way to get rid of this. . ecological curiosity that is increasingly present around his aerial activities.

The quick fix?

The richest Frenchman in the world explained this Monday, October 17 on Classic Radio, having sold his machine this summer: “ With all these stories, the band had a plane and we sold it. The result now is that nobody can see where I am going, because I am renting planes when I am using private planes.”

Explanations by the son of the CEO of the LVMH brand, Antoine Arnault, during this program. The manager of the luxury group believes that “It is not very nice that our competitors can know where we are at all times, it can give ideas, it can also give clues, clues and it is not very good, for reasons of confidentiality or security. »

The businessman’s son had also stressed on the set of C for youa few days earlier, that Bernard Arnault’s use of private jets was first and foremost professional: ” I am aware that this only affects a very small percentage of the population and that it may sound crazy to people listening to us, but they should know that this plane is a work tool. “.

And add that this ” Work tool allowed the group to always be one step ahead of the competition: We couldn’t find anything better than a private plane to win this race every day and stay a little ahead of our competitors.yes »

If Bernard Arnault has now disappeared from the radar, the fight to regulate, even ban, the use of private jets continues to make its way. This Thursday, October 20, Greenpeace, for its part, took up the issue again by revealing with the help of a study on the Netherlands that the number of private jet flights between January and September 2022 was already significantly higher than the number of flights accumulated throughout the country. 2019, before the appearance of Covid-19.
