Norway's airports refuel aircraft with biofuels

A Norwegian Air Shuttle Boeing 737-800 is seen in the air near Oslo Airport, Gardermoen in this July 17, 2009 file photo. The Nordic budget carrier placed one of Europe's biggest-ever aircraft orders on Wednesday, taking a big bet on the continent's recovery and hoping to push struggling rival SAS AB closer to the abyss. The order for 222 narrow-body aircraft worth $21.5 billion at list prices will be split between Boeing Corp and EADS unit Airbus, giving both firms major victories as they slug it out for dominance of the skies.
