How we're collaborating to accelerate the development of aviation biofuels.
We're collaborating closely with other airlines, industry, scientific agencies and leading environmental NGOs to accelerate the development of aviation biofuels. We are a signatory member of the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group (SAFUG), and have established landmark partnerships with US based bio-energy company, SG Preston and Canadian based agricultural-technology company Agrisoma Biosciences. This includes a program to work with Australian farmers to produce biofuel from mustard seed.
In 2012 we made history with Australia's first commercial biofuel flights, and in January 2018 we operated the world's first dedicated biofuel flight between the United States and Australia, a 15-hour trans-Pacific flight from Los Angeles to Melbourne.
