Air France has signed at least two contracts pertaining to sustainable aviation fuel or SAF with firms based in Dubai, local reports have said.
This is said to have happened when a high-level delegation from it held strategic meetings with aviation leaders based in the emirate at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The networking event was said to have been realized in partnership with the lille3000 association and sponsored by Clarins.
Air France CEO Anne Rigail hosted a special networking reception at the French pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, where she welcomed guests from the Emirati community, the Ambassador of France to the UAE, Xavier Chatel, elite members of the Air France Flying Blue loyalty program, airline staff, partners and representatives of the French business community, said the local reports.
Rigail also signed two SAF contracts with Dubai-based companies, and visited the airline’s regional offices at Dubai Airport Free Zone or DAFZA.
Speaking at the reception at the French pavilion at Expo 2020, Rigail said: “Air France is proud to have served the UAE and help connect the community to France and our international network for 46 years and this work continues.”
