Aeroméxico to Participate in SkyTeam Sustainable Flight Challenge
SkyTeam will work with 22 airlines in a sustainable flight challenge that aims to reduce emissions and reach sustainable development goals in the short-term in the aviation industry.
The global airline alliance’s second Sustainable Flight Challenge (TSFC) will take place on May 15-28, 2023. The challenge aims to make flying greener. This year’s event will involve more airlines, flights and innovations to discover solutions for greener travel, explained SkyTeam via a press release.
Via friendly competition, airlines can reach crucial discoveries to make aviation more sustainable. The TSFC is the first sustainability initiative in the industry and is focused on providing the most impactful solutions for meaningful change in the short term. The 22 participating airlines also agreed to share their innovations and insights industry-wide to help reduce aviation's environmental impact. However, the aviation industry is still waiting for greater availability of alternative fuel sources for greener flights.
“After last year's inaugural challenge generated hundreds of new innovations, many of which are being adopted by our airlines, we are excited to see what new ideas the second Sustainable Flight Challenge will bring to our industry. A lot of hard work has gone into these dedicated flights and I am proud of the efforts these airlines are making in our mission to reduce emissions and find new ways to make air travel greener,” says Patrick Roux, CEO, SkyTeam.
Aeroméxico, Mexico’s flagship airline, and Aeromexico Connect will participate in the challenge. The other participating airlines are: Aerolíneas Argentinas, Air Europa, Air France, China Airlines, China Eastern, Delta Air Lines, Endeavor Air, Garuda Indonesia, ITA Airways, Kenya Airways, Jambojet, KLM, KLM Cityhopper, Korean Air, MEA, Saudia, Shanghai Airlines, TAROM, Vietnam Airlines and Xiamenair.
SkyTeam will present seven award categories for the winners: lowest CO2 emissions, greatest CO2 reduction, lowest CO2 emissions ground operations, best in-flight waste management, best collaboration, best adoption and best innovation.
