Qantas Airlines to run LA-Australia flights on 50/50 aviation biofuel by 2020

October 12, 2017 |

In Australia, Qantas Airlines will buy 8 million gallons of aviation biofuel annually from SG Preston beginning in 2020 to use in all of its flights from Los Angeles to Australia, flying on a 50/50 basis. The decision was made because the aviation biofuel industry is more advanced in the US than in Australia but the company is working with partners to support the development of a domestic industry as well. The airline ran aviation biofuel trial flights between Sydney and Adelaide in 2012.
