Swiss Air technically ready to use biofuel

(SeeNews) – Jun 6, 2012 – Swiss International Air Lines is technically prepared to use biofuel but supply is too low and prices are high, Jean-Pierre Tappy, head of public relations, told media today.

The company would use only certificated biofuel to avoid criticism. A lot of critics say that biofuel requires land needed for growing food.

Swiss Air would need annually 1.2 million tonnes of fuel but has not received offers for big quantities yet. There are still no major suppliers, Tappy said.
