Fuel Supplier Agent

Always read Flight International magazine from back, they feature a different individual each week on the last editorial page.

About 4/5 years ago (I think) there was an article featuring a female who had set up as an independent fuel agent in the UK. Refreshing approach and and promising to be competitive providing fuel supplies worldwide for charter/corporate operators. Been through all my back numbers and cannot find article.

Anyone remember the article or know of the firm? (if she is still in business)

Seeking truly independent - honest - and 24/7 service for corporate JP1 guzzling aircraft - i.e. not the usual robbers

Any guidance would be appreciated!

Try Flightworx ltd they are a UK based company who should be able to source many competitive prices for you. Quick and easy to use!

Hi bank angle,

We use AML Global, who have always been helpful, competitive and fast worldwide. The other option is Jetex, speak to Jm Dart in OXF.

I used to use AML global as an operator and it was fantastic, a lot of contract fuel outfits would subcontract to AML and just charge a corkage... Smoke and mirrors.

To set this up and also save a sheadfull of money on international planning etc I'd give Jonathan Gill at Signum Aviation a call.

We have used International Aviation, LLC before for fuel for some of our aircraft ferry. Their prices for fuel & services were better at some locations.


Thanks,
Mark

My Age!

Hi opsbeach

Well spotted .... I am ancient held, professional licence since 1965 and flew mainly Boeings since - now in the corporate world (and still loving it!)

But I guess you remember JP! too!

Hi bankangle!

Yep, all the JP's are well known with me. If you still want some JP1 I'm pretty sure I can get hold of some for you, works well on BBQ's...

As for Fuel Supplier Agents (AKA resellers) I can put you in touch with pretty much everyone that you would need. Drop me a PM with where you're most interested in and I'll point you in the direction.

I assume the big fuel companies are not looking after you? What aircraft are you flying?
