Airlines unite for aviation biofuel accord

Air France-KLM CEO: “Suitability of biofuels for aviation has been proven.”

European airlines have joined Airbus, the European Commission and biofuel producers in launching a new industry-wide initiative in an effort to speed up the commercialisation of aviation biofuels in Europe. The initiative, called Biofuel Flightpath, is said to be a roadmap that targets an annual production of two million tonnes of sustainably produced biofuel for aviation by 2020. It also plans to establish financial mechanisms to back the construction of industrial biofuel production plants.
“The suitability of biofuels for aviation has been proven, opening an opportunity to drastically reduce air transport’s carbon footprint,” Pierre Henri Gourgeon, Air France-KLM CEO, said.
