Contract fuel provider Corporate Aircraft Association (CAA) recently surveyed its membership to gauge interest in an international rate program and received an “overwhelming response” in favor, said CAA president Thomas Prevost. As a result, CAA has partnered with fuel supplier World Fuel Services (WFS) on a new program to give CAA members exclusive international rates through preferred provider WFS/Colt Trip Support, as well as an enhanced Avcard program for eligible members.
Set to launch in the second quarter, the program will expand access to negotiated prices to more than 2,050 international fueling locations. It will be supported by WFS’s 24/7 logistics team, FuelFinder website and a toll-free telephone number. The secure website enables CAA members to quote rates and set up fueling services.
Prevost said, “We selected WFS due to its global supply and commitment to a high level of support.” WFS senior v-p of business aviation Malcolm Hawkins said that to ensure CAA members have a "great experience, we have leveraged our global resources and built a dedicated web application with 24/7 global support.”
