Air France KLM Martinair Cargo and Kuehne+Nagel launch first zero emission airfreight route

To support the industry’s carbon reduction targets, Kuehne+Nagel has joined the Air France KLM Martinair Cargo SAF programme, launching the first carbon neutral airfreight lane between North America and Europe from 1 January 2021. This forward-looking initiative marks another step towards the commercial deployment of alternative fuel and companies’ commitment to a sustainable future for aviation.

To proactively address its carbon footprint, the year-round transportation of all Kuehne+Nagel cargo on board daily Air France KLM flights from Los Angeles to Amsterdam will be fully covered by SAF. This first carbon-neutral lane underlines the strong sustainability programmes of both partners, Kuehne+Nagel’s Net Zero Carbon programme and AFKLMP Cargo’s SAF programme, which aim to connect people and goods through sustainable logistics.
