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 A-1 on stand from Mercedes mobile bowsers.

Customers can refuel at Blackbushe Airport from 08:00 local time, 7 days per week, or at other times by prior arrangement.
