Air BP has collaborated with Vivo Energy to grow its network in Africa, adding six new locations: Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, Abidjan-Felix-Houphouet-Boigny International Airport, Nelson Mandela International, Sal International Airport, Agadir – Al Massira Airport and Marrakesh – Menera Airport.

Effective immediately, Air BP general and commercial aviation customers can refuel at the new locations in Ivory Coast, Morocco, Cape Verde and Mauritius. Customers will be able to use their Air BP Sterling Card to pay for fuel at all six of the airports, in addition to ordering and paying for fuel via the RocketRoute MarketPlace platform.

Anthony Leon, general manager, Air BP Southern Africa, commented: "With Africa set to be one of the fastest-growing aviation regions over the next 20 years, there is enormous potential for both business and commercial aviation. We are delighted to be collaborating with Vivo Energy and will continue to invest in Africa, as the industry develops, to grow our operations and better serve our customers."

This collaboration builds on a technical services agreement that Air BP signed with Vivo Energy in 2015 to provide training services across Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Morocco, Kenya, Uganda and Mauritius. Air BP’s technical services team have already completed stringent operational audits at each of the new locations to ensure they are operating to the same consistently high standards of safety and service as the rest of Air BP’s global network.

Air BP now provides fuel at 40 locations across Africa. At all six of the new locations, Air BP will offer Jet A-1 and at the Moroccan locations (AGA and RAK) Avgas will also be supplied. More than 70 commercial aviation operators currently serve the new locations including a mix of both regional and international carriers.
