World Fuel Services, which is headquartered in Miami, has won the tender to supply fuel and equipment to Cotswold Airport near Kemble in Gloucestershire, UK.
The former RAF Red Arrows base and home to the Cotswold Airport Revival Festival which takes place in September, the airport is now home to a growing general and business aviation network.
Mark Amor, VP, World Fuel Services stated that as well as “supporting the site’s growth, our new relationship will also see us sponsoring the airport’s Aviation Scholarship which gives 10 young people the chance to experience all aspects of careers in aviation. This is another great example of how we can craft unique, innovative solutions that positively impact an airport’s long-term future.”
World Fuel Services now supplies both jet fuel and Avgas at the airport and is assisting with technical developments for purpose refuelling and storage equipment. The agreement also includes extensive support for repair and maintenance.
Customers landing at the airport can use their Avcard to request and pay for fuel, which will simplify fuel and services purchases.
Commenting on the new partnership, Christian Ackroyd, airport manager at Cotswold Airport said: “We are pleased to be welcoming the World Fuel Services to the site and increasing the fuel and equipment we have on offer for our customers. World Fuel Services has a competitive offering and has developed a proposal which addresses the needs of our growing customer base.”
