Air France-KLM Plans to Fly Weekly Biofuel Paris-Toulouse Route

Air France-KLM plans to fly weekly Toulouse-Paris flights using kerosene blended with clean fuel.

The airline will use the route to demonstrate to public authorities the need to develop biofuels for the industry, the company said today in an e-mailed statement. It will fly planes with a 10 percent blend of biofuel until September next year.

Airlines are moving toward using clean fuel after a pledge by the International Air Transport Association to cut emissions by half by 2050 from 2005 levels.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
