Now that’s a high fryer! Finnair uses biofuel made from recycled COOKING OIL to power flight from Helsinki to New York
Finland’s largest airline is asking customers to fry with them as it becomes the latest carrier to use a mix of recycled cooking oil and jet fuel to power a long-distance flight.
Finnair is using the biofuel to drive the engines of an Airbus A330 aircraft on a nine-hour demonstration flight from Helsinki to New York on Tuesday. Finnair’s biofuel mixture is being provided by SkyNRG Nordic, a joint venture between SkyNRG and Statoil Aviation, and is partly manufactured with cooking oil from restaurants.
