Neste and Lufthansa extends collaboration on aviation biofuel

October 2, 2019 |

In Finland, Neste and Lufthansa will strengthen their collaboration regarding the development of renewable solutions for aviation. As part of the collaboration, Lufthansa will use Neste’s sustainable aviation fuel, blended with fossil jet fuel on flights departing from Frankfurt. The first batch of sustainable aviation fuel was delivered to Lufthansa earlier this year.

Collaboration between Neste and Lufthansa began already in 2011, when Lufthansa successfully tested Neste’s sustainable aviation fuel on a total of 1,187 flights between Frankfurt and Hamburg: Lufthansa was the first airline to test alternative fuel in regular flight operations for about six months as a trial run in the context of the joint project ”BurnFair”.
