Since its arrival on 27 September, the Air France Airbus A350 has been expanding its operations to six destinations on four continents from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
Adding Cairo (Egypt) and Seoul (South Korea) from December 9th, 2019, and from the summer of 2020, the A350 will make its way to Bangkok.
Now, Air France has committed themselves to reducing their environmental footprint by implementing a variety of concrete actions – reducing weight on board, reducing and recycling waste, promoting eco-piloting, reducing our noise footprint, reducing and offsetting carbon emissions, and eliminating single-use plastic.
The main lever in reducing environmental footprint remains Air France’s fleet modernization program. Compared to previous generations of aircraft, the A350 consumes 25% less fuel by incorporating materials that are up to 67% lighter – 53% composites and 14% titanium. The new aircraft also reduces noise footprint by 40%.
