Fuel for the Fu­ture

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - VIRGIN AUSTRALIA NEWS -

In an Aus­tralian first, Vir­gin Aus­tralia suc­cess­fully com­pleted a trial to de­liver sus­tain­able avi­a­tion fuel through Bris­bane Air­port’s gen­eral fuel sup­ply sys­tem. Dur­ing the trial, the fuel, known as bio­jet, was sup­plied to 195 do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional flights, which trav­elled more than 430,000 kilo­me­tres to des­ti­na­tions across Aus­tralia and the globe. Bio­jet meets recog­nised in­ter­na­tional qual­ity and safety stan­dards and con­trib­utes to lower lev­els of car­bon emis­sions com­pared to tra­di­tional fos­sil jet fuel. The suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the trial at Bris­bane Air­port is the first im­por­tant step in en­sur­ing Aus­tralian air­ports and the fuel sup­ply chain will be ready for the reg­u­lar sup­ply of sus­tain­able fu­els in Aus­tralia.
