UK -Part of the Air
France -KLM Group; with nearly 400 aircraft flying to 182 destinations
in 98 countries. Together they form the third largest airline
in the world in terms of passenger miles. The group is currently
negotiating a merger with Italian airline Alitalia.
Online booking: e-ticketing and online check-in available. Environmental policy: There is a comprehensive environmental
policy on their website (we had to go through the C02 calculator
to find it). However while there is data about past performance,
it is difficult to find any definite targets for the future.
Like many airlines, reliance is placed on the better performance
achieved by buying newer aircraft.
