Flights from NY airport fuelled by cooking oil
NEW YORK (AP) - A Dutch airliner is flying from New York to Amsterdam on a fuel mix that includes leftover oil from frying Louisiana's Cajun food.
The KLM flights from Kennedy Airport are powered by a combination of 25 per cent recycled cooking oil and 75 per cent jet fuel.
After the first such flight Friday, the concept will be tested on 24 round-trip trans-Atlantic trips every Thursday for the next six months.
KLM executive Camiel Eurlings jokingly told the New York Post that "it smelled like fries" while the plane was being fuelled.
