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.
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.
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.
