Air BP has app to purchase fuelAir BP has app to purchase fuel

New app comes from RocketRoute New app comes from RocketRoute

Air BP has launched a new way of buying fuel—the RocketRoute Fuel App. It streamlines the fuel purchasing process for the international general aviation sector. It also provides an opportunity to offset carbon emissions through the system interface.

The app is designed for the global operator and pilot community, and is offered to anyone with a fuel requirement, not just current Air BP customers, the company said in a news release. The free app is available from the Apple App Store for iPads or from the RocketRoute website for other devices. After completing the registration process users can request, plan, and purchase fuel at any Air BP location. Customers can pay with an Air BP Sterling Card or a regular credit card, and existing Air BP customers can access their own accounts.

For the rest of 2016, customers can, for free, offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the fuel purchased via carbon credits, which support low carbon development projects around the world, the company said. Next year customers will pay to use this feature.

Air BP Chief Commercial Officer Norbert Kamp said, “Fuel is the most basic of necessities for flight, and together with RocketRoute we are making fuel purchasing an easier process. This is the first part of a much broader product offering we are developing with RocketRoute. As we add more services to the platform the whole will become greater than the sum of the parts; our ambition is to create a powerful digital marketplace for the aviation community.”
