JetFuelX’s free information technology fuel management tool for turbine aircraft owners and corporate flight departments is gaining widespread acceptance, having signed up its 2,000th aircraft this fall.
“I knew it was something long overdue for the industry, but even I was surprised by the immediate acceptance and interest, said company founder Jason Talley. “I wanted to have all my fuel card prices updated automatically, be able to search them for the best price and have fuel ordered in less than 15 seconds. Apparently, so do a lot of other operators.”
JetFuelX operates with most of the major fuel vendors in the industry to provide a quickly searchable e-database of fuel prices. It then analyzes all the latest pricing data for all of the operator’s fuel cards and identifies the cheapest vendor in seconds. Customers view the software tool as a faster and hassle-free alternative to fuel cards.
Casey Miller, president of Latitude 33 Aviation in Carlsbad, Calif., which operates a fleet of 25 business aircraft, spoke of the value of the product. “JetFuelX saved us significant time managing our growing fleet. We’ve reduced the total time spent on fuel logistics to under 30 seconds per destination, enabling us to easily source and secure the best fuel price possible for our charter operations and owners.”
JetFuelX intends to keep its new service free of charge, said Talley, who plans to bring more IT innovations to the aerospace industry, summarizing, “We will be constantly developing an adding new features and innovation, as well as strategic partnerships throughout the industry.”
