Air BP launches revolutionary RocketRoute Fuel App in Australia and New Zealand


Tuesday 28th February 2017

Air BP, the international aviation fuel products and service supplier, returns to this year’s Australian International Aerospace & Defence Exposition, Avalon, being held in Avalon, near Melbourne, Australia from 28th February – 5th March, with the news that its RocketRoute Fuel App is now available in Australia and New Zealand. Delegates are invited to visit the Air BP Trade Show Stand 2F8 to see a demonstration of the app first hand.

The RocketRoute Fuel App offers all aviation operators a new and simple way of buying fuel direct from Air BP, regardless of whether they have an Air BP account or not. It provides intuitive online access to network information including pricing, a simple order option and a choice to pay via an existing Air BP account or with a regular credit or debit card.

The app is available immediately, free-of-charge from the Apple store for iPhones and iPads, or from the RocketRoute website for all other devices. Users just need to sign up once and can request fuel from any one of Air BP’s manned network locations across Australia, New Zealand and the rest of the global network.   Air BP customers can also view their specific pricing as well as aircraft details when they link their existing account in the app.

Alan Wilson, CEO, Air BP Asia Pacific, comments: “Together with RocketRoute, we are very pleased to announce the launch of the RocketRoute Fuel App in ANZ at Avalon 2017. It has enormous potential given the vibrant and widespread nature of the aviation industry across Australia and New Zealand. Significantly, it provides operators with the convenience and flexibility of being able to order and pay for their fuel in advance and offers a simple way of buying fuel direct from Air BP for those who don’t currently have an Air BP account.

We invite delegates to come to the booth to find out more and see the app for themselves.”

Kurt Lyall, Co-founder RocketRoute, adds: “We are very pleased to have now landed in Australia and New Zealand. Together with Air BP, we bring to the region our passion for aviation and innovation in software.” Along with Air BP, RocketRoute will be represented on the Stand and will be demonstrating its innovative Flight Planning tool to customers.

RocketRoute has created a flight planning service which has garnered 120,000 registered users in less than seven years. This rigorous and ultra-reliable service will be coming to Australia and New Zealand in the near future.
