Transavia France, the low-cost airline of the AIR FRANCE KLM Group, operates scheduled and charter flights out of France (Orly, Nantes, Montpellier and Lyon) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Eindhoven and Groningen) to more than 109 destinations, primarily in Europe and Northern Africa.
Reducing environmental impact has always been a priority for Transavia France.
"We take our responsibility to reduce the negative effects of flying on the environment. We do this by reducing our CO2 emissions and minimising waste. Our target is to reduce Transavia's CO2 emissions by 35% in 2030." Source >>
In this interview, Emmanuel Cachia, Director of Flight Operations at Transavia France explains how they lower flight footprint by using SkyBreathe®, an eco-flying solution. Implemented in just 1 month, it helped them save about 10,000 tons of CO2 emissions in 2019, representing between 4 and 5% of reduction of their total fuel consumption.
"Transavia is a low-cost carrier so the implementation of this tool is not our core business. We asked OpenAirlines to do everything for us. We just provided them some information to do the link between their system and our IT network and after one month, everything was done in total autonomy.
Our pilots like SkyBreathe®, it's very clear and friendly, it's very easy for them to replay their flights and to identify the areas of improvement and thus to have a better eco-flying, which is a pilot skill today.
In 2019, they save, with eco-flying about 3200 tons of fuel in Transavia France so it's between 4 and 5% of our total fuel consumption".
