AvCard, a fuel contract credit card company with about 30,000 cardholders, is branching into the international handling and flight-planning market. In addition to basic trip planning, AvCard will offer ATC and ICAO flight-plan filing, overflight and landing permits, weather reports, notams, flight following, hotel arrangements and security services. The company will continue to arrange for fueling and ground handling at more than 6,500 locations around the world. AvCard officials said pricing will be competitive and promised there will be no “administrative fees” (extra costs) for any services provided by an AvCard merchant.
