Joint Industry Session 3

Commercial supply of biojet to airlines

 Since the first biofuel powered flight in 2007, several flights have been operated using biojet fuel. Most of these initiatives have been the result of bilateral arrangements between individual airlines and their biojet suppliers. Now for the first time, biojet is being supplied to an airport and made available to all airlines. This session will examine the lessons learnt during this process and remove any myths related to difficulties in deploying biojet at airports.
