Avfuel Corp. has created a dedicated flight and trip-planning subsidiary called Avplan.
Avfuel acquired Pacific Coast Forecasting (PCF) of Van Nuys, Calif., in the first quarter of 2010 to enhance the trip-planning and ground-handling arrangements Avfuel has provided to existing customers. Adding the option of in-house, professional trip planning will streamline and enhance Avfuel’s service matrix, allowing for quality control, company officials said. Avplan Trip Support provides flight briefing, weather analysis and comprehensive flight support for international and domestic flight departments, and provides competitive fuel rates at over 2,000 locations worldwide.
Avplan has several proprietary software planning tools that keep pilots more informed and therefore safer during each leg of flight, company officials said. It also includes an integrated customer information system (ACIS – Avplan Customer Information System) to support speed, accuracy, security and intricate details of trip planning, flight briefings and more.
“The newly developed Avplan software systems allow Avfuel to organize and access information with unprecedented ease in order to support our flight department customers. It’s an incredible resource at our fingertips,” said Avfuel Director of Flight Support Mike Wittman. “Avplan not only provides efficient and personalized international and domestic trip planning but wherever you are going, Avplan has the resources and the Avfuel backing to make your entire trip faster, safer and easier.”
Avfuel serves the global aviation industry via a network of over 2,000 international locations who offer Avfuel Contract Fuel for jet fuel savings, and 600 Avfuel-branded dealers in North America.
