Air BP announced several service initiatives to support business aviation operators heading to Brazil for the World Cup tournament that begins next month. At all 16 airports where it operates in the host country, Air BP will institute a “fast-track” fuel service, which will guarantee the arrival of a refueler within 20 minutes of an aircraft’s landing, given three hours’ advance notification, or alternatively, will allow operators to book predetermined fueling time according to their schedules.

The global fuel provider also pledged to maintain current fuel pricing at all of its Brazilian locations through the end of July, enabling charter operators to accurately plan their costs ahead of the games. In addition, Air BP will offer fuel specials at the principal airports in São Paulo (Guarulhos International) and Rio de Janeiro (Galeao-Antônio Carlos Jobim International).

The company has also partnered with Brazil-based Tri-Star Handling Concierge to offer complementary flight packages with navigation, flight plan, weather forecasting and notam services, as well as other available services, at special discount rates for Air BP customers.
