Air France-KLM is to allow the group’s corporate customers to make contributions towards the group’s sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) programme based on estimates of the CO₂ emissions associated with their business travel. The programme is designed to help create a sustainable model for producing and sourcing SAFs.
SAFs can be made from waste oils, waste products and forest residues and can be blended with traditional jet fuel without any engine modifications. Their use can reduce emissions by more than 75 per cent compared to conventional fuel.
"Air France and KLM have been working for many years to reduce their climate impact,” said Henri de Peyrelongue, executive vice president commercial sales, Air France-KLM. "The launch of the Corporate SAF programme is further proof of a strong commitment leading to concrete actions. Through their contribution, our corporate customers will be tomorrow's partners in an energy transition that can be fully in line with their more eco-responsible travel policy".
