Arinc opens virtual fuel desk
Subscribers to Arinc Direct can plan fuel purchases using Arinc’s new “virtual fuel desk,” with fuel prices pre-negotiated by Arinc. The fuel desk allows users to check regional fuel prices at multiple airports and FBOs instead of comparing prices at one possible destination. Once the operator makes his selection, the fuel desk e-mails or faxes the fuel release to the destination FBO. The virtual fuel desk service is available for most major U.S. and Canadian airports and FBOs, according to Arinc.
