Air France-KLM announces renewal of its fleet with A350

Paris, Sep 25 (Prensa Latina) The Air France-KLM company announced today a renewal of its fleet with the purchase of 50 A350 aircraft for long distances, at a cost of over 15 billion euros.

According to the Franco-Dutch airline, these are A350-1000 and A350-900 aircraft that will be received from 2026 to 2030, in a contract with the European manufacturer Airbus accompanied by the right to acquire 40 additional aircraft.

Air France-KLM specified that the order is evolutionary in nature, in order to offer flexibility when assigning aircraft to the giant’s different companies, based on market dynamics and the local regulatory framework.

Likewise, it indicated in a statement its intention to progressively remove the A330 and Boeing 777 aircraft from its fleet in the coming years.

French media reflect that the company preferred the A350 to the Boeing 787-10, but some consider that the door is not completely closed for the incorporation of devices from the American competitor.

According to Air France-KLM, the new Airbuses will play a key role in its ambitious decarbonization goal, with the goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions per passenger/kilometer by 30 percent by 2030.
