ForeFlight has acquired JetFuelX, a free web-based fuel card management service that makes it easy for owners of turbine aircraft to save money by finding the lowest prices available from their multiple jet fuel discount program memberships.
“The JetFuelX platform is the first of its kind and allows our customers to make timely and cost-effective planning and fuel purchase decisions,” says Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight’s co-founder and CEO. “The free JetFuelX service helps operators get the most out of participating in fuel contract programs and helps fuel providers and FBOs efficiently distribute pricing data to their members.”
“Our primary focus is to enable owners, operators, and flight departments to take full advantage of the tremendous cost savings available in purchasing fuel,” says Jason Talley, JetFuelX founder. “JetFuelX turns a time-consuming and cumbersome process into an elegant and easy to use solution that is accomplished in seconds. We are really excited to join the ForeFlight team and continue to expand our services.”
JetFuelX is designed to help everyone from individual pilots to large flight departments, including charter operators, pinpoint the best fuel prices and eliminate the task of managing and comparing multiple fuel card and FBO discount programs.
Customers can manage unlimited fuel card memberships and aircraft profiles, view all prices available at the planned destination, compare prices in real-time with nearby airports, and submit fuel releases in a matter of seconds, according to company officials.
The search function returns discount pricing information at the planned destination, as well as the nearest airports, in a list or interactive map view.
Existing JetFuelX customers can continue to enjoy the benefits of this free service. ForeFlight customers can login to portal.jetfuelx.com with their existing ForeFlight credentials and use the JetFuelX platform at no additional charge. New customers can sign up for a free account at JetfuelX.com.
