In this section we would like to raise several aspects concerning fuel services for the aircraft. This is one of the main issues when it comes to flight performance and usually one of the most expensive parts of each flight.
When applying for flight support the airline reports the estimate fuel amount requested for uplift at the airport of destination based on navigation calculations. The current situation on the oil market dictates the terms. Generally, fuel prices change monthly being formed from fuel plats with the addition of monthly deferential. While requesting fuel from fuel supplier at the airport, as well as from fuel brokers, you carefully need to monitor the fuel units and validity of current fuel prices. As a rule there are 3 units of measure:
- Metric ton
- Liter, 1000 liters
According to the geographical location of supplier fuel prices are calculated in one of 3 units. Usually this method can result in a problem for final fuel ordering airline.
Depending on the aircraft and software used many times the pilots will request a certain amount of fuel in tons but the fuel supplier can only work with litres as method of measurement. The requested amount should then be converted taking into account the actual fuel density at the moment of uplift. With standard climatic conditions 1 ton of fuel contains 1253 liters or 331 gallons. Using these units of measurement you can easily recalculate fuel amount into any unit you want.
During refueling organization the supplier can request a confirmation for the refueling from the crew (agreement, contract or fuel release).
Naturally a specific routing may require more fuel that originally planned and therefore we will closely coordinate with the fuel supplier the amount you need.
When refueling is finished crew receives the copy of fuel ticket where the actual amount of fuel uplift is noted, including these information:
- aircraft type
- registration number
- flight number
- flight schedule
- fuel amount
- fuel density
This document becomes a basic one while settlements between operator and fuel company take place.
The total price for fuel uplift invoices are based on this ticket. One of the important points when fuel is supplied are local taxes and fees for fuel. These taxes can increase the price up to 2-3 times.
Operators should ensure to present a valid AOC (Air Operator Certificate) to the fuel supplier to avoid that taxes have to be paid for the uplift.
