Air France Adds Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Levy to All Tickets

Air France is adding a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) levy to all tickets departing France from today.

The airline says that “French regulations require the incorporation of 1 per cent SAF on all fuels departing from France. As a result, a SAF contribution will be included in the price of each ticket, ranging from €1-4 in the economy cabin to €1.50-12 in the business cabin, depending on distance.”

The airline estimates that as a result of this, as well as voluntary contributions from corporate customers, over 15,000 tones of SAF will be used on its aircraft in 2022, around ten times more than the previous year.
