The first scheduled commercial flight of an Airbus A340-600 from Qatar Airways using GtL (Gas to Liquid) fuel, a high-performance synthetic fuel that is based on natural gas, took off from London Gatwick at 10:15 on 12 October, bound for Qatar. This marked the first time that a regular scheduled flight carrying passengers has used a fuel that is made up of 50 percent GtL synthetic fuel and 50 percent kerosene.
