Comment on this article

Air BP is now offering commercial jet biofuel to customers at Bergen airport in Norway.

The first batch was delivered to the airport on August 16.

This follows Air BP’s successful introduction of biojet at Halmstad airport in Sweden in June 2017 and at Oslo airport in Norway, in January 2016. As with Oslo, Air BP has worked with Norwegian airport operator Avinor to make this latest development possible.

Air BP has also supplied airlines on an ad hoc basis at airports that include Stockholm Arlanda, Stockholm Bromma, Karlstad and Göteborg Landvetter.

Commenting on the announcement Thorbjorn Larsson, General Manager Air BP Nordics, said: “We are excited to help make the supply of biojet commercially available and accessible to our customers in Bergen, our third airport in Scandinavia. The aviation industry has ambitious targets to reduce its carbon emissions and we are proud to be working together with our customers to increase the use of biojet.”
