Air bp celebrates fuelling milestone

Comment on this article

Air bp has passed a milestone of 250,000 fuellings using its Airfield Automation digital technology.

The landmark fuelling took place in Adelaide, Australia, when the business supplied Jet A-1 (with fuel system icing inhibitor) to The Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Since launching in May 2018, Airfield Automation has been rolled out to 145 Air bp network locations in 18 countries on four continents. Since the start of the year, new sites have also gone live in Norway, Sweden and the UK. Before many aircraft were grounded because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Air bp was completing around 1,000 fuellings per day globally, with some 20% using Airfield Automation.

Designed to enhance safety, reliability and compliance in airport fuelling operations, Air bp’s technology has been well received by operators who have reported increased speed and efficiency in fuelling. Customers have noted improved turnaround times and enhanced accuracy in fuelling as a result of adoption.
