A Air France

Air France is a historic partner of Aviation Sans Frontières, which was created in 1980 by 3 Air France pilots. The company financially supports Aviation Sans Frontières and provides transport facilities to our crews during their missions in Africa. The maintenance of ASF’s aircraft is ensured by the personnel of a Part 145 approved centre (EASA European regulations). A lot of our volunteers are active or retired employees of Air France, ensuring the maintenance of our aircraft in Africa and the accompaniment of sick children requiring immediate care in Europe.

In addition, Air France’s Flying Blue loyalty program allows ASF to benefit from many miles, reducing the transportation costs when accompanying sick children.
