Air France KLM furthers sustainability focus with new hybrid fleet

European airline Air France KLM has taken delivery of 31 Hyundai Ioniq Premium Hybrid vehicles from Activa Contracts in line with its ongoing focus on sustainability.

The company’s work to reduce its environmental footprint has been recognised by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index Europe and World for the past 14 consecutive years.

The new vehicles further this, with CO2 emissions of 84g/km, a company car Benefit-in-Kind tax rate of 19% in 2018/19 and fuel economy of up to 78.5mpg, and have been supplied as part of Air France KLM’s long-term partnership with Activa Contracts.

Benedicte Duval, general manager, Air France KLM UK and Ireland, said: “The delivery of these new low-emission vehicles is a continuation of our ongoing commitment to CSR and sustainability in the UK. We believe that to be truly sustainable, we need to start from within. With the delivery of the new hybrid company car fleet, we are boosting our internal sustainability, which we believe will only facilitate sustainable growth in all business areas.”

Steve Judge, Activa Contracts’ area manager and Air France-KLM’s account manager, added: “Activa Contracts’ consultancy-based analysis took into account the requirements of Air France-KLM and its drivers in delivering the new fleet. Minimising fleet CO2 emissions as much as possible was key so that employees benefited from the lowest possible benefit-in-kind tax, whilst ensuring that the cars were fit for purpose. The Hyundai Ioniq Premium Hybrid delivered on all fronts.”
