Customers will be able to use their Air BP Sterling Card to purchase fuel, in addition to ordering and paying for fuel via the RocketRoute MarketPlace platform. Air BP has been supplying Blackbushe since 2012 and during this period has invested in the installation of a new fuel storage facility and two new fuel bowsers.

Russell Halley, Air BP general aviation regional sales manager, UK said: “We are very pleased to continue to supply Blackbushe Airport demonstrating our continued commitment to our general aviation customers in the UK. We look forward to deepened co-operation between our team and that of the airport and to welcoming our customers this summer.”

Chris Gazzard, Blackbushe Airport manager, added: “Maintaining a robust and safe fuelling operation is critical for any aerodrome and I am pleased that this will continue at Blackbushe in collaboration with Air BP.  Their service and equipment quality has been second-to-none. We were supported in our previous contract, benefitting from the much-needed investment in the fuelling facilities. We can continue to deliver an excellent quality product.  We are excited to continue to welcome Air BP Sterling Card holders.”

Conveniently, Air BP can provide Avgas from the airport’s fuel storage facility, or both Avgas and Jet-Al on stand from Mercedes mobile bowsers.

Introduced by Blackbushe in late 2017, Rotors Running Refuelling for helicopters is available by prior arrangement, enabling faster and more efficient refuelling.

Customers can refuel at Blackbushe Airport from 08:00 local time, seven days per week, or at other times by prior arrangement. It offers convenient access to the capital being located just 40 miles from Central London on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey, and Berkshire. Blackbushe handles over 30,000 movements each year comprising a mix of training aircraft, general aviation and business aviation traffic.
