A Strong Relationship with the Community


We strive to build a long-term relationship with the community through information, dialogue and partnerships. Pro-active dialogue has been developed with residents, local and national government and voluntary bodies, as have sustainable initiatives for both environmental and social actions.
Education is one of the axes we are working on to establish a strong link with the community. We have set up partnerships with educational centres such as the CFA des Métiers de l'Aérien in France, and the Technical University in the Netherlands, where we hold a professorial chair. We are also proud to be the sponsor of many local cultural and sports events.
AFI KLM E&M involves its suppliers in this approach. They are notably invited to sign the Sustainable Development Charter that we enacted in 2006.
We also contribute to the development of the local economy around our industrial bases. For instance, our "ORYzon 2010" project, which involves investing in industrial infrastructures at Orly, will contribute to maintaining local employment for the years to come.
The group's commitment in favor of humanitarian and development projects is reflected at both airlines through donations, skills sharing, awareness-raising campaigns, communication channels and many other initiatives. The projects supported are selected in accordance with the orientations chosen by each airline.
