Air France adopts green aircraft cleaning method
Published on Apr 10, 2012
Air France has adopted new environmentally-friendly method of cleaning its aircraft.
The new Ecoshine process, which will be applied to the entire Air France fleet, is estimated to save eight million litres of water every year, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 57 metric tons per year.
The new product requires only a small amount of water compared with traditional cleaning. The frequent exterior cleaning and polishing of the aircraft also provides optimal air penetration, thus reducing fuel and CO2 emissions.
“Air France is taking concrete actions to reduce its environmental impact in all areas of its activity. This new method for cleaning the exterior of aircraft fits perfectly into the Company’s proactive environmental policy,” said Pierre Caussade, Air France's Vice President of Environment & Sustainable Development.
