Air quality

At airports, most gaseous emissions and particulates are emitted by aircraft movements (taxiing, take-off and landing).

Permanent monitoring to analyze and reduce our impact

To measure and reduce its impact on air quality, Air France-KLM monitors the atmospheric emissions of both its flight and ground operations, including low altitude emissions which impact the quality of the air around airports. The indicators cover emissions of CO2, SO2 and NOx.

Several levers are deployed by the Group to reduce its local emissions:

More electrically-powered

In 2021, approaching 61% of the Air France and KLM ramp equipment were electrically-powered. For its part, Transavia was involved with the start-up SAS in trialing the use of thermal ACU converters for the air-conditioning of aircraft on the ground, enabling a saving of 50,000 liters of fuel, i.e. around 100 tons of CO2 emissions.


Tons of CO2

Thanks to the Mobility plan whose first lever is the increased use of remote working. The associated reduction in the number of journeys between home and work

The other initiatives currently underway include:
