Japan Airlines Corp. will carry out a flight test on Jan. 30 of a Boeing 747-300 airliner fitted with a Pratt & Whitney engine using a 50 percent blend of a biofuel derived mainly from camelina, a plant in the mustard family, JAL said.

The plane will depart from Haneda airport in Tokyo, conducting an hourlong flight in airspace off Hachijojima Island, some 280 km south of Tokyo, and returning to the same airport, the company said Tuesday.
