LAX welcomes ‘eco-friendly’ United Airlines flight powered by biofuel
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that manages LAX, and United Airlines on Wednesday will welcome the arrival of “Flight for the Planet,” billed as the most “eco-friendly” commercial flight of its kind.
According to LAWA and the airline, the flight will use sustainable aviation biofuel and eliminate cabin waste while also being carbon-neutral.
The flight is scheduled to arrive at Terminal 7 at 1:21 p.m.
LAWA officials also intend to announce United’s expected purchase of 10 million gallons of sustainable aviation biofuel. United Airlines last year committed to reducing its carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2050.
