Air France is committed to providing employment for the disabled


To bring the national week for employment of the disabled to a close, Air France invites you to meet Régis, one of the voices you'll hear if you phone the Air France head office at Paris-CDG.


For many years now, Air France has been involved in the social and vocational integration of disabled persons within the framework of a three-year Company agreement. This commitment geared towards the employment and the promotion of equal employment opportunities for persons with disabilities encompasses vocational and social measures.


In 2009, disabled employees represented 3.58% of the workforce compared with 6.6% in 2005. The decrease observed is related to the application of the new law of 2005 which modified the method for calculating the legal employment threshold (reintegration of ground staff in the threshold). This decrease constitutes a new challenge for Air France and the Disability and Human Resources department, which have once again set their legal target at 6% while recommending recourse to the protected sector.


Air France pays extra special attention to preserving the employment of people who are affected by disability during their career. When an employee can no longer carry out his duties as a result of an accident or illness, Air France will adapt the person's position or provide him or her with retraining to occupy a different function within the Company.


When the disability deems it necessary, Air France can also provide a personal caregiver, who can help the person get ready for work, or set up a suitable means of transport, available for some fifty employees on a permanent basis and temporarily for others...FInally, in addition to facilitated access to the Company's sites for disabled employees (access ramps, lifts, automatically-opening doors), Tadeo telephone interfaces have been installed for hearing-impaired staff, along with French sign-language interpreters to help them out in meetings.


Today, 1,500 people with a physical, sensory or intellectual disability currently work at Air France.
