Norway’s first ever biofuel flight took off today

Norway’s first ever biofuel flight took off today

Today, Norwegian is proud to carry out Norway’s first ever flight with biofuel. Norwegian’s flight DY631 from Bergen to Oslo took off this afternoon with almost 50 percent biofuel; a flight that emits over 40 percent less than an average flight with regular fuel.

Norway's Minister of Climate and Environment, Tine Sundtoft, was among the passengers on board this milestone flight together with Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.

Emits almost 40 percent less than an average flight
The aircraft was filled with sustainable biofuel and emitted a total of 3178 kg - or 40 grams per passenger kilometre. Older aircraft with traditional fuels emit 5786 kg, which is 74 grams per passenger kilometre on the same stretch. In other words, this flight, with 50 percent biofuel, has over 40 percent less emissions than an average flight with normal fuel.

“At Norwegian, we are keen to make aviation more environmentally friendly. We have a clear goal to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 percent per passenger in the period 2008 to 2015. The most significant improvement is our new aircraft, and Norwegian's fleet is among the newest and most environmentally friendly in Europe. But this is not enough. Sustainable biofuel is also an important measure. This biofuel flight from Bergen to Oslo is an important milestone in the industry's shared commitment to make sustainable biofuel more easily available for airlines,” says Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.

Through the development of new technologies and frameworks, Norwegian wants to help make aviation carbon neutral by 2050.
