Abstract Fundamental issues related to the possible introduction of liquid methane, propane or butane fuelled civil passenger transport aircraft are addressed. It is proposed that partial transition to one, or a mixture, of these alternative fuels may provide an operational interim option when supplies of Avtur become prohibitively expensive. Preliminary criteria to determine the suitability of alternative fuels are also included.
