Did you know Total is supplying biofuel for several Air France flights during the Cannes Film Festival?
All along the event, 2500 passengers will fly from Nice to Paris with biojet, via 24 Airbus A321. The biofuel we're providing emits less than half the carbon a fossil fuel does. It can be blended directly into jet fuel without technical modifications to the plane, engines or fueling procedures.
It's one of only three biofuels in the world that have been certified for commercial aviation use and is produced by the yeast fermentation of sugars. The yeast is designed by Total and its partner Amyris thanks to cutting-edge technology. The supply chain has been certified sustainable and traceable.
Biojet fuel is one solution to shrink the aviation industry's environmental footprint.
Alongside Air France, Total is committed to better energy.

The 28th World Aerobatic Championships where Total was an official partner just ended. It was a tremendous success. Actually, more than 100,000 people came during the World Championships on the Chateauroux Deols Aiport. This is twice the expected number by the Aerobatic French Federation (FFA), which organized this event with the Aerobatic International Federation (FAI).
During these 10 days of competition, TOTAL was the only aviation fuel provider. Despite the weather and the hard work conditions, a high quality service was provided by TOTAL with/thanks to the help of two avitailleur from TOTAL airbus.
The AIR TOTAL customers were able to enjoy this great show offered by the pilots and during the Saturday air show from the TOTAL VIP area. This competition was mainly a sport success. And the French team did it again, like in Texas two years ago, they won the competition. They took/won the gold medal in every category: team, individual, woman and man.
Regarding Aude Lemordant, sponsored by TOTAL since 2014, she won the World Aerobatic Championships Unlimited for the second time in a row. What a great performance (from Aude lemordant), just as Simon de la Bretèche ( 11th at the overall ranking), Alexandre Le Boulanger (14th at the overall ranking), and Mélanie Astles (5th at the woman ranking). All these pilots from the AVA (the aerobatic school sponsored by TOTAL) flying on their TOTAL aircraft showed us all their (great) talent during these championships.

The Châteauroux-Déols international airport, able to accommodate jumbo jets like the Airbus A380, offers a warm welcome to recreational aircraft as well. It’s a unique feature of the facility, which hosted an exceptional event this summer: the World Aerobatic Championships (WAC).Châteauroux prevailed over rival candidates Le Bourget, Bordeaux and Étampes to win the support of the French Federation of Aeronautics (FFA) in hosting the 2015 World Aerobatic Championships. “Given our capacity to accommodate large numbers of visitors and our less saturated air space, we had every advantage”, Says General Director Mark Bottemine.
The 28th World Aerobatic Championships where Total was an official partner was a tremendous success. Actually, more than 100,000 people came during the World Championships on the Chateauroux Deols Aiport between 20 and 29 August. This is twice the expected number by the Aerobatic French Federation (FFA). During these 10 days of competition, TOTAL was the only aviation fuel provider. Châteauroux-Déols is also home to light aviation. Says General Director Mark Bottemine, “When I took over the site in 2007, I eliminated the landing fee and installed a Total station with fuel pump (AVGAS 100 LL). Our aim was to attract amateur pilots and offer them as many services as possible. And it’s been a success: with nearly 500 new flying enthusiasts each year, we’ve developed a fan base!”

FRANCE AIR EXPO, which is to be held from June 4th to 6th 2015 a tLyon-Bron International Airport (LFLY), announces its partnership with TOTAL. The group wished to partner up with the reference exhibition for light and business aviation through its Aviation Division. This partnership follows naturally from Total being the biggest aviation fuel provider in terms of volume for JET A-1 and AVGAS in the Europe-Mediterranean-African zone. The firm is a key player for the national aerodrome network with more than 250 airfields supplied in France.
Meeting all the general aviation customers at the same event TOTAL would like to take this opportunity to present its full range of services for general aviation. The fuel supplier thus recalls that its services are available to all kind of users: from recreational pilots to business jet operators. This statement is consistent with the values of FRANCE AIR EXPO which just announced its two new ambitions from the 2015 edition onwards: becoming itinerant and extending its range of exhibitors to the lightest and heaviest aircraft.
A growing professional exhibition with a central locationFour months before opening, FRANCE AIR EXPO is looking highly promising. Held in Cannes until 2014, exhibitors’ wishes to change platforms – especially due to access issues and runway length – have been taken into account. FRANCE AIR EXPO will be held at Lyon-Bron International Airport, third-busiest airport in France in terms of business aviation, which offers a privileged field for private aviation and benefits from all the transport and accommodation facilities. The 1,820-metre FAA-compliant runway will enable lots of aircraft to land with no time (on demand) or weight restrictions.In addition to the 120 aircraft exhibited, the organizers are expecting to welcome 1,500 airplanes and 18,000 visitors during this three-day event. The registration trend suggests that the number of exhibitors should double. Daher Socata, Cessna, Tecnam, Pilatus, Pipistrel, Piper, Beechcraft, VL3, Czech Sport Aircraft, Ruag, Bell Helicopter – to name but a few – already confirmed their registrations. And so did Mooney.“Total’s support for the 9th edition of the Exhibition, added to the 150 exhibitors already confirmed, is crucial for the development of this event. Unique for general aviation in France, our aim is to become the first exhibition in Europe in the next three years. We are proud to partner with one of the world’s biggest aviation fuel provider, number one in Europe, and there is no doubt that the communications linked to this partnership will result in a two-fold increase in the number of visitors. Total has joined one of the major actors of this event: the Swiss watch manufacturer Breitling which has been supporting all our aeronautic events in France and Middle East for nine years”, Samantha Chastang said as the Partnership Manager of FRANCE AIR EXPO.
