Air France
Official partner of Paris 2024, Air France initiates sustainability effort

Air France will match the amount of each customer subscription to the ‘Environment-sustainable aviation fuels’ option during the Paris 2024 Games.

Air France is an official partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympics Games.

The initiative is now in effect and will automatically apply to all bookings for travel July 18 – Sept. 9 to destinations in mainland France, as well as French Polynesia.

If a customer makes a contribution of €50, this will be matched by Air France, making a total of €100.

Since 2022, the Environment-Sustainable Aviation Fuels option has been available when purchasing an Air France flight on airfrance.com or the Air France app. All the funds raised are invested in the purchase of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF).

By 2030, Air France aims to incorporate at least 10% of sustainable aviation fuels on all its flights worldwide, compared with 1% today. This target goes beyond the European incorporation mandates. In 2023, and for the second year running, the Air France-KLM Group was the world’s leading user of sustainable aviation fuel.

To reduce its environmental footprint as quickly as possible, Air France has developed a decarbonization trajectory, aiming for a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions per passenger/km by 2030, compared with 2019. It’s called teh Air France Act and these are the key points …

  • Fleet renewal, by using the latest generation of aircraft, the Airbus A350 and A220, reducing fuel consumption by 20 to 25% and reducing noise footprint by more than a third. Every year, Air France invests over one billion euros in fleet renewal. By 2030, the airline’s fleet will comprise 80% of new generation aircraft (compared to 21% currently and 45% by the end of 2025)
  • Increased use of sustainable aviation fuel
  • Operational measures including eco-piloting (taxiing on one engine, direct flight paths in liaison with air traffic control, continuous descents)
  • Development of intermodality (combining a train trip and a flight in a single booking)

Air France says it intends to lead the way by supporting the development of production facilities in France, Europe and around the world.
