US flight uses biological aviation fuel

HAINAN Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner landed at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Tuesday after flying over 11,000 kilometers from Beijing using biological aviation fuel.

The plane’s biofuel is produced from waste cooking oil, signaling the first Sino-US green route demonstration to use aviation biofuel.

The use of biofuel can reduce carbon emissions while ensuring flight safety and efficiency, the airline said.

Sun Jianfeng, president of Hainan Airlines Co, told Xinhua that the flight by biofuel is as safe as ordinary aircraft with aviation oil.

Sun said Hainan Airlines has always viewed environmental protection and harmonious environment development as top priority, and it proved that the airline has the capability to carry out cross-ocean flight using biofuel.

The airline made China’s first domestic biofuel-powered passenger flight in 2015.
