SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA), together with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), has started operating a series of "green package" flights on its non-stop San Francisco-Singapore route.

The "green package" flights combine the use of biofuels, fuel-efficient aircraft and optimised flight operations. This will be done over a three-month period for 12 flights.

CAAS is facilitating the use of optimised flight operations and air traffic management best practices which reduce fuel burn and carbon emissions for the flights.

The first of the 12 flights, SQ31, departed San Francisco at 11.21am (San Francisco time) on May 1 and arrived in Singapore at 7.10pm (Singapore time) on May 2 with 206 passengers on board.

The initiative supports the efforts under the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint 2015 to develop Singapore as a leading green economy, where businesses adopt more efficient and sustainable processes.
