From next Spring, Finnair will use bio-kerosene manufactured by Neste Oil for flights between Helsinki and London or Singapore. The fuel is manufactured from waste made from cutting wood. The company will also start to use bio fuels from renewable raw materials, but is particularly interested in biofuel that utilizes wood waste from Finnish forests.

Commercial flights will commence when the certification agency, the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), approves the bio fuel for commercial use.
