New App Has Fuel Providers Bid for Business
Fuel Bidder, a new Delaware-based software provider, has launched Fuelbidder.com, a jet fuel marketplace application it says will help aircraft operators find the lowest jet fuel price at airports around the world. According to the company, the free app allows users to request pricing from hundreds of suppliers. Registered users input their uplift date, airport, preferred FBO, estimated fuel volume and a deadline by which they would like to receive all final price offers. The app will then send the request to each registered fuel supplier at the destination airport. Suppliers can then submit their prices (displayed from lowest to highest) until the deadline is reached. Users can then click on the offer from the supplier they choose and communicate directly with them. The app is currently available for PC and Android platforms and will soon be ready for downloading through the iTunes store for the iPad and iPhone.
