London City Airport Jet Centre Joins The Avfuel Network Of Branded FBO

22/10/2012
London City Airport Jet Centre at London City Airport has announced that it will join Avfuel Corporation’s global network of branded FBOs. As an Avfuel-branded FBO, the Jet Centre will now offer the jet fuel savings program Avfuel Contract Fuel, the AVTRIP pilot rewards program and more. 
 
The Avfuel partnership not only addresses the Jet Centre’s commercial objectives, but brings a raft of extra benefits for LCY Jet Centre’s customers.  Axel Ienna, Director, Corporate Aviation for London City Airport said:  “We’re a competitive business and have clear business goals; enhancing the service we offer to customers and stakeholders, polishing the passenger experience and attracting new customers from outside our traditional catchment area, which are amply served and promoted by our place in Avfuel’s global network. Being able to offer more competitive rates and increased flexibility serves customers’ needs, while being part of the network raises awareness of all that the LCY Jet Centre can offer, both across Europe and in the USA.” 
 
A favourite of corporate travellers, London City Airport Jet Centre is a desirable addition to the Avfuel network, said Marci Ammerman, Avfuel Vice President of Marketing.  “We’ve always strived to listen to our customers and cater to what they really want. We see similar values put forth by London City Airport and the Jet Centre,” Ammerman said. “The airport and FBO have demonstrated a tremendous commitment to corporate aviation. The care that has gone into the selection of available products and services as well as the facilities is remarkable.”
