Jan. 5, 2015 – Lufthansa has announced their intent to switch to a biokerosene mixture in its aircraft at Oslo airport as of March 2015. This fuel switch will be used for approximately 5,000 flights from the Norwegian airport. The contract with Statoil Aviation will supply 2.5 million gallons of cerfitied biofuel.

“In 2011, Lufthansa was the first airline in the world to run regular flight operation with a biokerosene mixture by operating an Airbus A321 between Frankfurt and Hamburg for half a year as part of the project,” according to International Meetings Review. This new move is the next step toward using alternative fuels in regular flight operations.
