Air BP Introduces UL91 At Kjeller Airport

Norway’s Largest GA Airport Now Provides General Aviation An Alternative To Leaded Avgas

As the general aviation industry looks for ways to get around the problems associated with leaded avgas, Air BP has now introduced their unleaded UL91 in Europe. They also have a unique dispensing system that can automatically detour the possibility of selecting the wrong fuel.

Air BP has improved access to, and distribution of, its UL91 product in Norway by installing a self-serve automat facility at Kjeller Airport, (ENKJ). This makes Kjeller the first airport in Scandinavia to offer three Air BP fuel grades; UL91, which is certified according to ASTM D7547, Avgas 100LL and Jet A1.

Demonstrating its commitment to safety, Air BP has improved the self-serve facilities at Kjeller making them easier, safer and more efficient to use.  For customers using Air BP’s Sterling Credit Card, the automat will recognize each individual Sterling Card thereby activating delivery of the correct fuel grade and reducing the risk of incorrect fueling.

The installation of the UL91 automat is the first step towards the development of a network of Air BP UL91 automats across Scandinavia, which will be rolled out in 2016. Once in place Air BP anticipates that the addition of the third fuel grade, and the convenience afforded by its UL91 Sterling Card, will go some way to addressing the region’s high demand for, and interest in, using unleaded avgas. Air BP says it also supports their commitment to help the aviation industry achieve a lower carbon future.

“With the introduction of unleaded avgas at Kjeller, Air BP can meet the customers’ demands for an improved aviation fuel. UL91 is recommended by plane and engine manufacturers for its performance as well as its reputation for maintaining cleaner engines. UL91 is both ethanol and lead-free which brings notable benefits. It can result in lower carbon emissions, and lead to better engine performance due to the absence of ethanol. We expect our customers, both airports and pilots, will respond enthusiastically to the increased availability of unleaded avgas,” said Thorbjorn Larsson, Air BP General Manager, Nordics.

As Norway’s largest general aviation airport, Kjeller Airport serves Oslo just nine nautical miles away and was the logical choice for Air BP’s first installation of the UL91 self-serve automat in Scandinavia. Additional locations in Denmark, Sweden and Norway are also scheduled to receive UL91 facilities.
