Air France KLM extends Sustainable Flight Challenge

[ May 18, 2023   //   ]

Air France KLM Martinair Cargo is operating two more flights under the second edition of its Sustainable Flight Challenge.

The first Sustainable Flight Challenge was organised in 2022 as an initiative of KLM, organised under the SkyTeam alliance umbrella with affiliated SkyTeam  airlines and their partners joining forces to operate the most sustainable flight possible as a collective knowledge-generating exercise.

In the latest phase of the challenge, KLM operated a Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner flight from Amsterdam to Los Angeles on 17 May, while Air France is due to operate an Airbus A350-900 from Paris to Atlanta on 23 May.

This year’s sustainable flight challenge will see 24 affiliated and non-affiliated partner airlines joining the Challenge to conduct flights in the most sustainable manner possible. All knowledge and insight acquired will be shared with the stakeholders, fostering cooperation and enabling the industry to work together to create a more sustainable future
