KLM Royal Dutch Airlines recently announced the launch of its biofuel-operated flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Amsterdam Schipol Airport. The move of the airline is aimed at conserving environment as well as drastically cutting costs on jet fuel.
The leading Dutch carrier’s latest biofuel initiative will see the operation of a series of flights between New York JFK and Amsterdam every week. The airline will be using a mixture of traditional kerosene and biofuel to operate flights on this route.
The airline in a statement said that the biofuel-operated flights on this route would be fly every Thursday with the help of a B777-200 aircraft. The aircraft will be emblazoned with the words “We fly on biofuel” to appropriately highlight the airline’s latest initiative.
With the operating of aircrafts on biofuel, it is hoped that the passengers would have enhanced travel options and be able to book cheap flights in the near future.
