Air France-KLM is fully committed to reducing the company’s CO2 footprint. Weight reduction on board the aircraft is an important part of that effort. After the successful introduction of lightweight pallet nets last year, another big step is now being taken with the introduction of lightweight pallets.

Due to an innovative construction process, the new lightweight aluminum pallet is as strong as the current pallet, but weighing 17 kg less. (Current standard pallet weighs 100 kg, while the new lightweight pallet is 83 kg).

Gradually all pallets in the Air France-KLM-Martinair pallet stock will be replaced by these lightweight pallets, leading to a significant reduction of CO2 emissions.
