Aeromexico commences biofuels service between Mexico City and Costa Rica

September 29, 2011 |

In Mexico, the country’s largest airline, Aeromexico, has just begun using a 25 percent biofuel mixture on its flights from Mexico City to San Jose, Costa Rica.

As part of the “Green Flights” project designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a Boeing 737 will now fly the route using a mixture of 75 percent conventional jet fuel and 25 percent synthetic paraffin biokerosene.

Aeromexico carried out its first transoceanic commercial flight using biofuels last month on the Mexico City-Madrid route.
