WORLD FUEL SERVICES NAMED FUEL SUPPLIER FOR COTSWOLD AIRPORT

World Fuel Services has won the tender for fuel supply and equipment at Cotswold Airport, Gloucestershire, England.

At the former RAF Red Arrows base, World Fuel Services now provides both jet fuel and AVGAS as well as assists the airport in its technical developments with purpose refueling and storage equipment. The contract also includes extensive support for repair and maintenance.

World Fuel’s AVCARD is now accepted throughout the airport – opening it up to the large base of cardholders and simplifying fuel and services purchases for its customers.

Mark Amor, Vice President at World Fuel Services, said: “Cotswold Airport brings a unique offering to the aviation market in the UK and is home to some of the country’s most popular flying schools, seeing many trainee pilots achieve their PPL’s. As well as supporting the site’s growth, our new relationship will also see us sponsoring the airport’s Aviation Scholarship which gives ten 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.”

Christian Ackroyd, Airport Manager at Cotswold Airport, said: “We are pleased to be welcoming 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. We look forward to working with them.”
