Qantas Airways will operate a biofuel flight on 13 in April
Qantas Airways, an Australian airline with the main hub at Sydney - Sydney Airport, has decided to make the first bioceros flight. The race will take place between Sydney and Adelaide, on 13 April 2012.
QF 1121 flight will depart from Sydney at 10: 20 and arrive in Adelaide at 12: 05. Return flight QF 1120 will depart from Adelaide at 13: 35 and arrive in Sydney at 16: 00.
The Sydney-Adelaide race will be performed with an Airbus A330 aircraft and biofuel derived from conventional cooking oil and fuel will be used (50: 50 ratios). The biofuel is manufactured by SkyNRG and is fully certified for commercial aviation use.
As oil prices rise, more and more airlines are looking for reliable and cheap fuel solutions. I can say that in the next 10-15 years, the biofuel industry will grow more and more. A study shows that greenhouse gas emissions can also be reduced by up to 17% in aviation. We return with information after the race!
