Fly Greener to the Paris Olympics Through Air France

Planning your trip to the Paris 2024 Olympics and Paralympics? Here’s a chance to fly there guilt-free! Air France, an official partner of the Games, is launching a special promotion to reduce the environmental impact of travel during this exciting event.

Double the Impact for a Sustainable Future

Air France is committed to a greener future for aviation. They’ve introduced a program called “Environment-Sustainable Aviation Fuels” which allows passengers to contribute to the use of cleaner burning fuels on their flights. Here’s the exciting part: For all bookings made between March 13, 2024 and travel dates between July 18 and September 9, 2024, Air France will match your contribution to this program for flights to destinations in mainland France and French Polynesia!

What are Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs)?

Sustainable Aviation Fuels are a cleaner alternative to conventional jet fuel. Made from non-fossil resources like used cooking oil or agricultural waste, SAFs significantly reduce CO2 emissions throughout their life cycle. They meet strict sustainability criteria to ensure they don’t compete with food production and are not made from unsustainable sources like palm oil. These fuels are also blended seamlessly with conventional jet fuel, requiring no modifications to aircraft or infrastructure.

Investing in a Greener Future

By subscribing to the “Environment-Sustainable Aviation Fuels” option, you’re directly contributing to Air France’s ambitious goal of reducing CO2 emissions per passenger by 30% by 2030. This program, called the Air France Act, goes beyond just SAFs. It’s a multi-pronged approach that includes:

  • Fleet Renewal: Air France is investing heavily in new generation, fuel-efficient aircraft like the Airbus A350 and A220. These planes reduce fuel consumption by 20-25% and significantly cut noise pollution.
  • Operational Efficiency: The airline is implementing eco-friendly practices like single-engine taxiing, optimized flight paths, and continuous descent approaches to further reduce emissions.
  • Intermodality: Air France is exploring combining train travel with flights for seamless, lower-carbon journeys.

Transparency and Measurable Impact

When you subscribe to the “Environment-Sustainable Aviation Fuels” option, you’ll receive a report that details the amount of SAFs purchased based on your contribution and the resulting CO2 emission reduction. Air France is a leader in sustainable aviation, being the world’s top user of SAFs for the second year running (2023).

Fly to Paris 2024 and Make a Difference

By choosing Air France and subscribing to the “Environment-Sustainable Aviation Fuels” option, you can experience the magic of the Olympics while minimizing your environmental impact. Air France aims to incorporate at least 10% SAFs in all flights by 2030, exceeding European mandates. They’re also actively supporting the development of new SAF production facilities worldwide.
