Aeromexico, Mexico's largest airline, began offering service from Mexico City to San José, Costa Rica, using planes that burn a 25 percent biofuel mixture.

The plane will use the biofuel mixture as part of a "Green Flights" project, which is designed to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.

A Boeing 737 will provide service. The plane will use a mixture of 75 percent conventional jet fuel and 25 percent synthetic paraffin biokerosene.
