MEXICO BIO-FUEL FLIGHT ON COURSE FOR LIFTOFF TODAY

Interjet and Airbus are scheduled to conduct the first Jatropha-based bio-fuel flight in Mexico later today using an Airbus A320. The bio-fuel is made from locally sourced Jatropha plant harvested in the southern state of Chiapas. The aim of the demonstration flight and the project is to speed up the commercialisation of aviation bio-fuel in Mexico.

The A320 flight is planned from Mexico City’s International Airport to Angel Albino Corzo of Tuxtla Gutierrez airport in the southern State of Chiapas, with one of the two CFM engines using 30% bio-fuel. The Jatropha bio-fuel has been processed by Honeywell’s UOP. “The test flight is the realisation of a two year ambition for Interjet to develop a production chain for renewable bio-fuel, with the purpose of creating a Mexican platform for sustainable aviation bio-kerosene,” said Miguel Aleman, Interjet President.
