Oslo To Become Biofuel Supply Hub

Oslo Airport is to be the first hub airport in the world to receive regular deliveries of biofuel after SAS, KLM and the Lufthansa group signed a supply deal with Statoil Aviation.

Oslo Airport is to be the first hub airport in the world to receive regular deliveries of biofuel after SAS, KLM and the Lufthansa group signed a supply deal with Statoil Aviation.

Under the agreement, the Scandinavian supplier, which was recently bought by BP, will deliver 2.5 million litres of biofuel over 12 months starting in March 2015.

The deal came after Oslo Airport’s operator Avinor opened an incentive scheme for carriers to use biofuel.

Lufthansa was the first carrier to sign up to the scheme and has committed to powering 5,000 flights with a five per cent biofuel mix.
