Air France KLM Martinair Cargo has launched a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) programme for the airfreight industry.
Both Air France and KLM have been pioneers in terms of fuel efficiency and seeking alternative fuel solutions.
KLM operated the world’s first commercial flight using SAF in 2011 from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Paris Charles de Gaulle.
By investing in the cargo SAF programme for the air cargo group, customers will not only help pioneer the use of SAF in the aviation industry, but will also help scale up the SAF market.
The programme enables shippers and forwarders to power a percentage of their flights with SAF.
“Our commitment to reducing CO₂ emissions is one of the cornerstones of our cargo strategy. The launch of a SAF programme for airfreight is an important step in our ambitious sustainability roadmap for the coming years. I invite all our customers to join us in creating a more sustainable cargo future.” said Adriaan den Heijer, EVP of Air France-KLM Cargo and managing director of Martinair.
This new programme will enable the airline to team up with shippers and forwarders who share a commitment to sustainability as well as make SAF widely available at a more reasonable price.
