Eco flight of Airbus A380 on cooking oil?
There are some news that sounds hilarious at first sight. Airbus performed the first-ever A380 flight powered by 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel derived mainly from cooking oil and other waste fats. The flight lasted about three hours, operating one Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine. The aircraft used 27 tonnes of SAF provided by TotalEnergies. This is the third Airbus aircraft type to fly on 100% SAF over the course of 12 months. Maybe Green solutions are closer than we think?
