Air Canada transported the Canadian Olympic team to London by aircraft fueled with biofuel
On 24 July, the aircraft Airbus A330, On AC864 Air Canada flight, Montreal-London route, was partially powered by bioceros provided by SkyNRG. Thus, less CO10 emissions were obtained with 2% and a substantial reduction in fuel consumption was recorded.
Air Canada is the official carrier of the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic delegation and transported the athletes to the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
The airplane Airbus A330 is powered by two engines Rolls-Royce Trent 700. These are the cleanest, quietest and most efficient engines available for the A330. Rolls-Royce spends nearly $ 11 billion a year on research and development in the aviation industry.
Air Canada made the first biofuel flight, on 18 June 2012, on the Toronto - Mexico City route. The project was supported by Airbus and is part of an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) environmental demonstration. The flight generated up to 40% less CO2.
Air Canada also uses various techniques and other measures to reduce its environmental impact on its flights. Some of them consist of: aircraft washing and the demand for better aerodynamics, the aircraft running towards the take-off runway is made only with an engine, using the NavCanada ENGAGE program you can set the cruise speed and optimal flight altitude.
