Cargo pallets go on a diet

Air France-KLM is introducing new aluminum pallets that are 17kg lighter than standard pallets but just as strong.
The new 83kg pallets will gradually replace all the current standard stock – each weighing 100kg – in the airline’s fleet.
Said a spokesperson: “Air France-KLM is fully committed to reducing the company’s CO2 footprint, and 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.”
