International aviation fuel supplier Air BP has launched a new way of buying fuel — the RocketRoute Fuel App.
The app, developed in conjunction with RocketRoute, streamlines the fuel purchasing process for the international general aviation sector. It provides online access to a global network of aviation fuel locations, convenient payment methods, and in a first for fuel apps, the 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.
It is available immediately, free-of-charge, from the Apple store for iPads, or from the RocketRoute website for all other devices.
Once the registration process has been completed, users can request, plan, and purchase fuel at any one of Air BP’s 800-plus locations worldwide. The payment process allows all customers to pay with either an Air BP Sterling Card or a regular credit card. Existing Air BP customers can also access their own personal pricing.
The carbon offsetting function of the app is managed by BP Target Neutral, BP’s not-for-profit initiative. It allows customers to offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the fuel purchased. This is done via carbon credits that support low carbon development projects around the world. This app feature will be free-of-charge until the end of 2016. After that, customers can continue to neutralize their carbon footprint by paying to offset.
