The Netherlands flagship carrier KLM has announced that, from September, it will begin running flights between Amsterdam and Paris fuelled by used cooking oil.

More than 200 flights on the route will use biokerosene, after KLM ran successful test flights with the fuel in 2009. KLM has announced that it is open to using other products for biofuel as long as they meet certain standards on sustainability, including a reduction in CO2 emissions and no impact on biodiversity and food supply.

The biokerosene is supplied by SkyNRG, itself part of a consortium launched jointly by KLM in 2009.
