KLM to fly on cooking oil

Dutch airline KLM announced on Wednesday the launch in September of more than 200 flights between Amsterdam and Paris operated on biokerosene.

The flights will be operated using biofuel made from used cooking oil.
KLM began test flights using biofuels in 2009. The biokerosene used on the Amsterdam-Paris route has the same technical specifications as traditional kerosene and has not required any adjustments to the aircraft engines or infrastructure.
