London Oxford Airport accepts Air BP Sterling Card

1st October 2013 - London Oxford Airport is pleased to announce that it now accepts the Air BP Sterling Card for fuel payment. Having been included into the Air BP Omega program earlier this year, the airport now complies with some of the strictest and most stringent fuel quality control and delivery requirements in the industry.

In line with the high value OMEGA product, Air BP will now offer continual training along with technical advice and specific guidance tailored to the airport’s requirements. The airport has been using Air BP fuels since October 2012 and began to utilise the tailored support and training programme in November 2012 to enhance its fuel handling standards.

OMEGA, which stands for Operations Manual for External General Aviation, has been designed by Air BP to ensure that customers like airport operators and refuelling contractors can achieve high levels of operating standards when handling fuel. The programme highlights operational best practice from the moment fuel arrives at the airport and advises on safe storage and quality testing through advanced check lists. In addition it makes recommendations about how to move fuel around the airport and provides instruction for the safe filling of aircraft tanks. Air BP is using its own in-house training team to deliver the bespoke training to London Oxford’s operational team.

The addition of the Air BP Sterling Card to the range of accepted payment options at Oxford brings benefits to an even broader base of business aircraft operators around the world with favourable credit terms for users.

Operators wishing to apply for a Sterling card can visit www.bp.com or e-mail sterling@bp.com and request an application form.
