Freight forwarders Airflo and Tiger Freight are the latest companies to sign up to Air France KLM Martinair Cargo’s (AFKLMP) Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme.

The partnership will make it possible to use SAF on AFKLMP Cargo flights from Kenya and Zimbabwe carrying Airflo’s and Tiger Freight’s fresh agricultural and horticultural products.

GertJan Roelands, senior vice president sales and distribution, AFKLMP, said: “So far we have welcomed 26 partners to our SAF programme this year. We have seen an uptick in interest and a rapidly growing demand for SAF in recent months.”

Pier Luigi Vigada, director eastern and southern Africa at the cargo business, added: “Committing to a Sustainable Aviation Fuel programme means understanding the concept, sharing the values and involving our customers.

“Doing that in the horticultural business environment, where margins are low and complexities are high, is a hard task.

“Airflo, Tiger Freight and their CEO Andrew Pattenden, have fully embraced the project and will be supporting Air France KLM Martinair Cargo in their SAF investments for 2022, both from Kenya and Zimbabwe.”

The AFKLMP Cargo SAF programme enables different stakeholders in the logistical airfreight industry to power a percentage of their flights with SAF.
