Air BP, the international aviation fuel
products and service supplier has bolstered its presence in the Southeast of
England with the addition of a new location at Redhill Aerodrome in Surrey (KRG\EGKR).
With immediate effect, Air BP will be the sole
fuel provider of Jet A-1, AL48 and Avgas at the aerodrome. With access across
the southeast of England, Redhill is ideally suited for both business aviation
and rotary activity, the latter of which accounts for some 80% of its traffic
serving as the base for Arena Helicopters and the National Police Air Service.
The airport has recently installed a new fuel
depot in order to meet the supply needs of customers such as the Kent, Surrey
and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust’s AW169 helicopter, and additionally to address
the expansion of the Trust’s activities at Redhill. Air BP has also invested in
a new state-of-the-art Jet A-1 and AL48 fuel bowser for the airport.
Russell Halley, General Aviation Regional
Sales Manager UK, Air BP and Ann Bartaby, Chief Executive Redhill Aerodrome.
General Manager Air BP Western European, commented: “We are delighted to
announce the news of our supply agreement at Redhill. Air BP is committed to
serving the General Aviation market both in the UK and abroad and Redhill
represents our core audience.”
Chief Executive Redhill Aerodrome added: “We are very pleased to be welcoming
Air BP to Redhill and look forward to a reliable and highly efficient service
which we anticipate will greatly benefit our customers. Air BP was selected to
supply fuel owing to its professional approach and understanding of the needs of
the GA market. We also look forward to welcoming customers to our airport so
that they can experience and benefit from both our new infrastructure and our
uniquely positioned aerodrome which is ideally placed to serve London and the
Southeast of England.”
Open 7 days a week and year-round (with the
exception of Christmas Day and Boxing Day), Redhill Aerodrome is located 22
miles south of London within easy access of the M25 and M23 motorways.
