Air France and the Solar Impulse Foundation are joining forces in order to accelerate the adoption of clean and profitable technological solutions in 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.
