Air France matches customer contributions to Sustainable Aviation Fuels

As an official partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympics Games, Air France has announced that it will be matching the amount of each customer subscription to the “Environment-sustainable aviation fuels” option during the Paris 2024 Games. This is effective from today, and will automatically apply to all bookings for travel between 18 July and 9 September 2024 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 the airfrance.com website 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 an ambitious decarbonisation trajectory, aiming for a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions per passenger/km by 2030, compared with 2019.
