This amounts to around 3,000 flights between Oslo and Bergen with 50 percent biofuel mix.

Initially, delivered biofuel will be from used cooking oil, but major players in the power and the forest industry in Norway are now looking at the possibility of forest-based large-scale production of biofuels for aviation within a few years.

Statoil Aviation has taken the responsibility of biofuel delivery for testing at the business level. The company currently has an agreement with Lufthansa Group (Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Germanwings, Eurowings, Brussels Airlines) SAS and KLM to supply biofuels at Oslo Airport.
