Finnair launched a series of biofuel powered flights between Amsterdam and Helsinki in July. The airline is using a 50/50 blend of biofuel derived from recycled vegetable oil and traditional jet fuel. The fuel is supplied by Amsterdam-based SkyNRG, which was co-founded in 2009 by Air France KLM, North Sea Group and Spring Associates. Finnair said it "will accept for permanent use only a biofuel alternative that is socially, ecologically and economically sustainable.”
