New Air BP Aviation Fuel Depot at Essendon Airport in Australia

The commitment to future growth for aviation services at Essendon Airport in Australia has been strengthened with the construction and unveiling of a second aviation fuel depot at Essendon Fields.

The facilities include two new CL17 17,000 litre fuel trucks that can deliver fuel to anywhere on the airport and a new aviation fuel depot, located on Wirraway Road.

 Spread across three levels the depot houses two 110,000 litre storage tanks of Jet A-1 fuel. With direct airside access, the new fuel service adds greater choice for all aviation users at the airport, making it easier to refuel quickly.

“This project is made possible by Air BP and Essendon Fields sharing a vision that growth in aviation requires a competitive fuel service. The airport is busy enough to require two fuel providers and we are very excited to be partnering with Air BP to provide better service to all of our aviation operators,’’ said Chris Cowan, CEO Essendon Fields. “Fuel is the lifeblood of any airport and in the past some aviation operators may have chosen not to refuel at Essendon Airport due to a lack of an alternative fuel facility. We've now rectified that situation with the construction of this new depot. We also have a vision of future growth in aviation services at Essendon Airport in particular for emergency services, regional airlines and corporate jets. Air BP shares our exciting vision for the future’’

Air BP is one of the world's largest suppliers of aviation fuel products and services. Working in collaboration with RocketRoute, Air BP launched the RocketRoute Marketplace App providing a quick and easy way to view pricing, order fuel and pay either on account or by credit card.

“We see this investment at Essendon Fields as a logical progression of our strategy to grow our already substantial network of aviation fuel locations throughout Australia and around the globe,” said Alan Wilson, Managing Director, Air BP Asia Pacific. “Air BP provides industry leading supply security and product quality assurance so that those flying to Melbourne can fuel with confidence.”
