Air France aims to reduce CO2 emissions with SkyBreathe

Air France has announced it is partnering with OpenAirlines to pursue efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, deploying SkyBreathe, OpenAirlines´ eco-flying solutions, the company said.

OpenAirlines, a provider of fuel efficiency solutions, will continuously analyze the data of thousands of daily flights with 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.
