Flying Green, the new and sustainable French airline wants to launch its operations out of Paris Orly, France, from 2023. The brand name already announces it, but the airline indeed affirms: an airline that is different from other airlines. Green, environmentally friendly and premium.
The airline aims to launch in 2023, based on a business plan that was revealed on 6 December. Flying Green wants to combine “economic performance, a minimal ecological footprint and high-level technical skills“.
According to its website, Flying Green will be the only French airline having a fleet of latest generation aircraft that is quieter and consumes 20% less fuel. The airline approached Airbus for the acquisition of three Airbus A320neo. To finance these three aircraft, the startup will launch a fundraising campaign in 2022.
“Flying Green is committed to implementing all existing technologies that are the most efficient for the environment, from the start of its operation. It wants to be the quietest airline company and aims to be the first “net zero emission of CO2” by adapting, as and when, to new certified technologies in order to maintain a high level of safety. A passenger travelling with Flying Green will thus reduce their CO2 emissions by 16% on average.”

“Ambient airspace lighting also has the advantage of creating pleasant atmospheres for all phases of flight. In addition, this LED technology allows passengers to better adapt to jet lag. Lighting can also be segmented by class to best suit the ambience of each area of ??the aircraft.

Provide the latest technology and seamless connectivity on board.

The Covid-19 crisis has drawn increased attention to the hygiene and disinfection of cabins. The Airspace cabin has many advantages that can be used by operators (flight attendants). In addition to the non-contact functionality for all toilets, the cabin is already applied with antimicrobial coatings.
In addition, clean air has always been a priority for Airbus when designing the cabin. Air in Airbus cabins is a mixture of fresh air drawn in from the outside and air passed through efficient High Efficiency Particulate Filters (HEPA), which remove 99.9% of airborne particulate matter. air up to the size of microscopic bacteria and viruses. In all Airbus cabins, the air is renewed every 2 to 3 minutes in flight.”
