Airline flies first passenger flight on natural gas

14 October 2009

The world’s first commercial passenger flight powered by a fuel made from natural gas completed late on Monday a six-hour journey from London to Qatar, one of the biggest producers of natural gas.

“‘Today’s flight opens the door to an alternative to oil-based aviation fuel,'” Malcolm Brinded, Royal Dutch Shell’s executive director upstream international, said in a statement late on Monday.
