Air Total has been awarded the contract for supply of all aviation fuels for three years, including the supply of F34 jet fuel for Newquay’s military/search and rescue aircraft.

Total will facilitate a fuel handling Quality Control course to the Newquay refuelling team, to the internationally recognised JIG4 standards, through its team of aviation inspectors based in Paris.

Cornwall Airport Newquay is one of the largest UK customers for Total’s General Aviation department and will require short-notice deliveries, potentially seven days a week.

“It’s an exciting new direction and market growth for us and who knows, maybe there’ll be a request to supply rocket fuels in a few years time,” says Simon Fage, General Aviation Area Manager, referring to the fact that Newquay is one of five shortlisted locations for a UKcommercial Space Port.

“Security of supply and the ability to tailor the service provision to Cornwall Newquay’s specific operational needs were key factors that made Total stand out for us in the selection process,” says Richard Thomasson, Airport Operations Manager at Cornwall Airport Newquay.

Total have security of supply since they own and refine their own fuel at refineries in the UK and within Europe for Jet Fuel, Avgas 100LL and the increasingly popular UL91. Total also delivers on dedicated aviation-fuel delivery trucks for extra reassurance of fuel quality.
