The new scheme enables companies to play an active role in the future of sustainable travel.

They will be able to determine the annual contribution they wish to devote to the airlines’ Corporate Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme after an estimate of the CO2 emissions associated with their travel.

Contributions will be invested in the sourcing and consumption of SAF.

“This will support the creation of a sustainable aviation fuel industry that guarantees increasingly eco-responsible air transport,” according to the partner airlines.

“By investing in this corporate programme, companies are taking concrete action to reduce CO₂ emissions and are contributing to the ecological transition of air transport by supporting innovative solutions,” the said

“The launch of the Corporate SAF programme is further proof of a strong commitment leading to concrete actions.

“Through their contribution, our corporate customers will be tomorrow’s partners in an energy transition that can be fully in line with their more eco-responsible travel policy.”
