KLM slammed for how it advertises aviation biofuel use on its website

August 3, 2020 |

In the Netherlands, in a non-binding ruling, the Dutch Advertising Code Committee recommended KLM should change the way it advertises the use of biofuels on its website. On its website, KLM had suggested that biofuel is used on a large scale by making the point that “biofuels are mixed with conventional fossil kerosene to a maximum of 50%”. The NGO Stay Grounded says KLM deliberately overlooked mentioning the actual percentage used in their fleet, which in 2019 accounted for only 0.18% of the total fuel consumption of KLM. This seemed to be enough to make claims such as “we’re the first airline to fly on biofuel on a daily basis” but the committee didn’t agree.
