KLM is the first airline in the world that will fly on biokerosine with passengers on board. This has been announced by KLM on Wednesday.
“This is an important step towards an emission-free airline,” said CEO Peter Hartman of KLM.
On November 23 a Boeing 747 will fly on a blend of Camelina biofuel and fossil kerosene. The Transport and Water Management agency has authorized the flight with a limited number of passengers on board.
Camelina is made from plants. KLM is also developing biofuel based on algae. “We will choose the best product,” according to a spokeswoman.
