The Dutch airline Martinair will fly in four Airbus A350F cargo planes. These will replace older Boeing 747Fs. The KLM subsidiary is modernizing the fleet, some of which is getting on in years.
“We are very pleased with this small step towards the A350F. Air France KLM Martinair Cargo’s sustainability efforts through significant improvements in fuel emissions and compliance with the most stringent ICAO Chapter 14 for noise and CAEP 8 for nitrogen oxides (NOx). We are fit for the future,” says Adriaan den Heijer, Executive Vice President Air France KLM Cargo and Managing Director Martinair.
The Airbus A350F is based on the passenger aircraft that have been on the market for a long time. The Cargo variant was presented in 2021. So far, the European aircraft manufacturer has landed 35 orders from seven customers. “Another A350F confirmation, and a great one at that! We are very excited about the A350F entering the KLM/Martinair world. This confirms the importance of this state-of-the-art, long-haul, high-capacity cargo aircraft for the air cargo segment. I am very happy with the start of our program. With 50% less noise and 40% less fuel burn and CO2 emissions compared to older generation freighters, die them, that’s hardly a surprise! We thank the Air France-KLM Group for their continued trust,” said Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International.
Deliveries to Martinair are expected to meet the latest ICAO carbon dioxide emissions standards, which will come into effect by the end of 2027, Airbus said.
