Accelerate the development of sustainable and affordable biofuels
Finnair said it aims to operate "at least three" Amsterdam-Helsinki flights, and hopes that "the adoption of 'green routes' by airlines will help accelerate the development of sustainable and affordable jet fuels". The carrier plans to operate a biofuel flight between Amsterdam Schiphol and Helsinki in the week beginning 18 July, using either an Airbus A319 or A320 aircraft.For its first biofuel flight Finnair will use biofuel made from recycled vegetable oil (i.e. Used Cooking Oil) supplied by SkyNRG in a mixture that is 50% biofuel and 50% ordinary aviation fuel. At this stage Finnair aims to fly at least three Amsterdam-Helsinki flights using a 50% biofuel blend in both engines. Refuelling is done at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
