TotalEnergies (Paris:TTE) (LSE:TTE) (NYSE:TTE) and Air
France-KLM have today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
for the delivery of more than one million cubic metres/800,000
tonnes of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) by TotalEnergies to Air
France-KLM Group airlines over the 10-year period from 2023.
This sustainable aviation fuel will be produced by TotalEnergies
at its biorefineries. It will be made available to Air France-KLM
Group's airlines, mainly for flights departing from France (in
accordance with French legislation) and the Netherlands.
The sustainable aviation fuels reduce CO(2) emissions by at
least 80% on average over the entire lifecycle, compared with their
Air France-KLM has implemented a strict sourcing policy and is
committed to purchasing only SAFs that do not compete with human
food or animal feed, that are RSB* or ISCC** certified for
sustainability, and that are not derived from palm oil.
With the signing of this MoU, Air France-KLM and TotalEnergies
confirm their collaboration and their goal of furthering the
development of a more responsible aviation sector.
A long-standing partnership in support of aviation sector
Air France-KLM Group and TotalEnergies have been collaborating
on the use of sustainable aviation fuel for nearly 10 years. Their
partnership began with "Lab Line for the Future" in 2014, a
two-year experiment during which 78 flights between Paris-Orly and
Toulouse and between Paris-Orly and Nice were powered by 10% SAF
supplied by TotalEnergies.
In January 2020, Air France and TotalEnergies participated,
alongside Safran and Suez, in the Call for Expression of Interest
launched by the French government aimed at developing sustainable
aviation fuel production in France.
Over the last two years, TotalEnergies has also supplied SAF for
a number of Air France-KLM Group commercial flights:
-- In May 2021, Air France's first long-haul flight, between Paris and
Montreal, powered by 16 % SAF produced in France;
-- In October 2021, an Air France flight between Paris and Nice powered by
-- In May 2022, an Air France flight operated as part of the SkyTeam
Sustainable Flight Challenge, between Paris and Montreal, powered by 16%
-- In June 2022, several flights operated by all of the Air France-KLM
Group's airlines as part of the Connecting Europe Days, powered by 30%
"Biofuel development is one of our Company's strategic
priorities. This new partnership with Air France-KLM exemplifies
the excellence of industry and French aerospace in committing to a
more sustainable aviation sector. By directly reducing the carbon
intensity of the energy products used by our air transport
customers, we are actively working with them to achieve net-zero
emissions by 2050, together with society," said Patrick Pouyanné,
Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies.
"Air France-KLM is fully committed to advancing SAF production
in Europe and around the world. This Memorandum of Understanding
with TotalEnergies is another building block in the development of
French production that can meet the airlines' needs, marking a
milestone in the successful decarbonization of our business. We
continue to step up our efforts to reduce the impact of our
operations as quickly as possible, and we look forward to working
with TotalEnergies to accelerate our efforts to reduce the impact
of our operations as quickly as possible," said Benjamin Smith,
Chief Executive Officer of Air France-KLM.

significantly reduce CO2 emissions from air transport.
TotalEnergies aims to produce 1.5 million tonnes of sustainable
aviation fuel by 2030.
