Lighter aircraft thanks to new baggage containers

Air France has completed the renewal of its 3,650 long-haul hold baggage containers (on Airbus A380, A340, A330, Boeing 777 and 747). These new containers, made ​​of composite fiber panels, are 11 kilos lighter and reduce the overall weight of the aircraft before and during the flight, resulting in a reduction of CO2 emissions of 8,000 tons per year, corresponding to 2,500 tons of fuel. The new containers, lighter and easy to handle, also make work easier for Air France ramp staff, further increasing flight punctuality.
