Airbus delivers new A320NEOs to China Southern on 10% aviation biofuel

February 27, 2019 |

In China, China Southern Airlines has become another airline to join the programme to use a blend of traditional and sustainable biofuels to power aircraft for delivery flights from Airbus. The aircraft involved is the first A320NEO for China Southern Airlines, which left the manufacturer’s delivery center in Toulouse last week for its new home in Guangzhou with a 10 percent blend of sustainable jet fuel in its tanks.

The sustainable fuel option for delivery flights has been developed by Airbus in association with Air Total, the aviation subsidiary of the global energy operator. In order to stock the eco-friendly product, Air Total has installed the first ever biofuel station adjacent to the Airbus delivery center in Toulouse. More than of 30 aircraft have so far been delivered by Airbus since the facility was inaugurated in May 2016.
