Stobart Jet Centre, the lone FBO at London Southend Airport, has joined the Avfuel branded network. The facility, which opened early last year, offers 24/7 service, with transfer from airplane to automobile in less than a minute thanks to ramp access for vehicles. Located less than 40 miles from the heart of London, with train and helicopter transfers available, the location offers on-site immigration and customs service with pre-clearance availability.
“We are delighted to welcome Avfuel to London Southend Airport, the UK’s fastest-growing airport,” said Fiona Langton, the facility’s managing director. “Our customers enjoy award-winning customer service and great travel connections right into the heart of London, one of the world’s financial and entertainment capitals.”
Stobart, in addition to fueling the airport’s commercial traffic, also provides private aviation with jet-A and avgas, and as a branded FBO, will now offer Avfuel contract fuel and Avtrip points. The facility operates a fleet of six jet-A tankers and one 100LL avgas truck to service its fuel farm, which will now be supplied by Avfuel.
“We’re thrilled to offer our loyal customers a branded fueling location in the London region,” noted Joel Hurst, vice president of sales for the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based company. “This partnership will allow us to better serve international operators with service in the UK’s epicenter of business and travel.”
