Oslo becomes world’s first hub to offer biofuels

Program today starting at noon marks historic occasion
Oslo’s main airport Gardermoen will be the world’s first hub to offer jet biofuels to all airlines and is now launching deliveries. A program today starting at 12:00 noon will mark this historic occasion.
Taking part in the commemoration of the event are Minister of Transport and Communications Ketil Solvik-Olsen and representatives from airport operator Avinor, AirBP, Lufthansa Group, SAS, KLM and ICAO.
The project will be briefly presented by the various parties, before attendees board a bus for the ride out to the tank facilities to view the actual filling process.
Oslo Gardermoen is the first major airport to offer biofuel, to supply SAS, Lufthansa and KLM with 660,000 gallons of biofuel for their daily operations. The carriers signed an agreement with Statoil Aviation in November 2014 for a regular supply of biofuel at the airport.
