Air France Expands Partnership with Michelin

(27 Jan 2021)
Air France has renewed its trust in Michelin,
selecting the French group as the exclusive tire supplier for its
aircraft fleet.

Michelin will equip the airline’s
short, medium and long-haul aircraft – excluding the Boeing 787 – with new or retreaded tires produced at the Saint Doulchard plant in Bourges,
France.

Air France’s aircraft will be equipped with tires such as
the Radial Michelin AIR X which
incorporate NZG (Near Zero Growth) technology designed to
guarantee a constant tire diametre.


“We are honoured by the trust Air France has
placed in us by choosing Michelin as its trusted partner for the
next ten years,”
said Mauro Sponza, Director of Aeronautical Activities at
Michelin. “This commitment naturally includes equipping its
entire fleet with high-performance tires. Guaranteeing a high
level of safety in extreme conditions and a large number of
landings, Michelin tires are  particularly well suited to
new-generation aircraft. Lighter in weight, they also offer
significant fuel savings, helping to make aviation even more
sustainable.”

Air France and Michelin will also extend their
partnership to digital and other services. Michelin will offer Air
France innovative
recycling channels, high-performance ecological resins and its
3D metal and plastic printing expertise. This broadening of the
partnership’s scope is made possible by Michelin’s recent
diversification of its areas of activity and know-how.

Air France has set
ambitious sustainable development objectives, including
a 50% reduction in its CO2 emissions per passenger/km by 2030.

“More than just a supplier, the Michelin Group is
a long-standing partner of Air France,” said Géry Mortreux, EVP
Engineering & Maintenance at Air France. “We are delighted to
be equipping our aircraft with tires Made in France and to be
extending our collaboration to new fields of innovation. This new
agreement paves the way for ambitious projects that will enable us
to accelerate the reduction of our environmental footprint, which
is one of Air France’s priorities.”

    (19 Aug 2021) Thailand is currently going through its worst wave of COVID19 to date. Fuelled mainly by the highly transmissible Delta variant, the country reports on average just over 20,000 new cases per day, with the number of deaths also on the rise. In addition to the ongoing vaccination programme, there are many COVID19-related restrictions and curfews in place in many of Thailand’s provinces, and yet, as the country relies so heavily on international tourism to generate revenue, it is also trying to attract fully vaccinated tourists with reduced or more relaxed quarantine restrictions in select parts of the […]
