A shared vision

Innovating and reinventing ourselves for more sustainable aviation

To build sustainable aviation as of now, Air France has joined forces with the Solar Impulse Foundation and is seeking innovations for more sustainable aviation. The Partnership will identify and promote technologies which positively impact the reduction in carbon emissions, waste and noise. All of these clean, efficient and economically feasible solutions will be made available to the aviation industry to build a more sustainable future and Air France will implement those which are relevant to its activities.

After this crisis, we will more than ever seek to be the pioneers of more sustainable aviation. Innovating and reinventing ourselves so that we may once again bring people, economies and cultures together across the skies.
