Air France is pursuing its efforts in terms of innovation for carbon reduction by partnering with OpenAirlines, the leading global provider of fuel efficiency solutions. Under the agreement, OpenAirlines will continuously analyze the data of thousands of daily flights by deploying its eco-flying solution SkyBreathe® - which was developed in partnership with Transavia France, an Air France Group company - to identify fuel-saving opportunities to maximize Air France’s operational efficiency and thus minimize costs and carbon emissions.

This new initiative is part of Air France’s global commitment to reducing its environmental footprint through its fleet renewal, its piloting or ground handling practices, the use of biofuels, or its partnership with the Solar Impulse foundation aimed at developing innovative sustainable solutions for aviation. Air France has set an objective for 2030 to reduce by 50% its CO2 emissions per passenger / kilometer compared to 2005. Alexandre Feray, CEO and founder of OpenAirlines said about this new initiative:

"We applaud all airlines that can go beyond the collective industry goals; this new agreement shows Air France's leadership in climate action. [...]"
