Customers are now able to choose between four levels of SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) contribution within myCargo when they make a booking. We are constantly working to reduce the CO2 emissions of our flights. By giving customers the power to decide on their own level of SAF contribution, we can fuel a more sustainable future, together.
Our SAF programme
The Cargo SAF programme makes it possible for shippers and forwarders to power a share of their flights using SAF. Customers can choose their own level of engagement, while we make sure that the investment will be used entirely to source SAF. When investing in SAF, our customers receive a third-party audited report linking the amount of SAF purchased to the traffic volume, with an indication of the resulting cut in carbon emissions.

Contribute to improving the sustainability of your and your clients´ supply chains
Be a part of the transition to net zero and help reduce overall CO2 emissions from airfreight carriage ahead of the EU´s 2035 decarbonisation goal.
In line with our strategy and in anticipation of EU Green Deal initiatives, Air France KLM will add a percentage (0.5% to 1%) of SAF on all flights departing from France and the Netherlands. We have made this part of our All-in rate since February 2022 to cover the additional costs. To achieve economies of scale, we continue to invest in SAF.
The Cargo SAF programme is a fixed annual amount for contributing to SAF, while goSAF is a contribution on AWB level.
In 2022 we started adding SAF (0.5% - 1%) on our flights departing from Paris Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam Schiphol. Although 0.5% - 1% might seem very little, it is an important step in the right direction. We will have to work with all parties around us and come up with rock-solid solutions and innovations to speed up the use and production of SAF.
Yes, to an allocation shipment booking in myCargo, you can also add the SAF contribution
At the start we will not have a dashboard available in myCargo, however your Sales Manager can provide you with a dashboard showing which AWBs you have booked on, the amount of SAF, the costs and CO₂ reduction
SAF will be invoiced via the standard invoicing method and it will be charged as an Other Charge. We will start with the Other Charge “MU”. As soon as IATA has provided the new codes for a SAF Other Charge, we will switch. This will be provided on your booking confirmation, it will also be indicated in the invoice/IATA CASS statement.
SAF doesn´t have a fixed price and is dependent on different drivers, such as the price of the feedstock and the ROX, therefore it is possible that the SAF price is changed over time
The SAF amount is a fixed amount based on your booking details and it will not be updated based on your actuals. Therefore the amount of reduction can be different vs booked. You will find the finals back in the dashboard that your Sales Manager can provide.
You will only receive a report if you have a total investment of 12 500 euro per year. If you have a contract on the side, you can also receive a report for the additional investments.
Before RCS you can do it by Modify my booking, after RCS it is not possible to cancel the goSAF contribution anymore. It will be non-refundable and you´ll be obliged to pay the commitment.
You are flexible to determine which shipments you´d like to fly on SAF
You will find the SAF charge indicated as an Other Charge Code. Previously the other charge code used was MU there is now a specific code for Sustainable Aviation fuel namely; ZD (Aligned with IATA Standards)
