Boeing and ANA celebrate the delivery of 787-881 JA808A using a biofuel

Boeing (Chicago) and ANA (All Nippon Airways) (Tokyo) made aviation history yesterday (April 16) as the new 787-881 Dreamliner JA808A (msn 34490) flew for the first time powered in part by sustainable biofuels on its delivery flight.

The delivery flight between Boeing’s Delivery Center in Everett, Washington and Tokyo’s Haneda Airport is also the first ever trans-Pacific biofuel flight.

JA808A flew with biofuel made mainly from used cooking oil and emitted an estimated 30 percent less CO2 emissions when compared to today’s similarly-sized airplanes. Of the reduction in greenhouse gasses, about 10 percent can be attributed to the use of biofuel and approximately 20 percent to the technology and efficiency advancements offered by the Dreamliner.
