The aircraft was refuelled in parallel under both wings using one 60 m³ and one 80 m³ fuelling truck. The required blockfuel was 123 m³ of Jet A-1. Therefore, with a remaining fuel amount of 20 m³ onboard, a total of 103 m³ had to be loaded onto the aircraft. This was achieved in less than 30 minutes.
Approximately twenty flights of 8 hours each are planned over the next 6 weeks, always with different flight patterns.
