Merger Brings New Offerings, Efficiencies, In Corporate
Aviation Fuel Procurement, Management
Jet Fuel Strategies announced today that it will join with
Johnston Aviation's fuel procurement operation, forming a single
operating unit. The new company, which will be led by President
Doug McConnell of Johnston Aviation, will retain the Jet Fuel
Strategies, LLC name and operate from Johnston's current
headquarters in Elyria, Ohio.
"We've been told over and over, by folks from all walks of life
in the corporate flight industry, that our contract pricing
consolidation and optimization software is the best out
there," said Alec Blume, CEO and Founder of Jet Fuel Strategies,
and creator of the software. "Teaming with Doug and his group will
enable us to provide our customers not only with robust
technological solutions, but a complete jet fuel strategy, saving
them precious time and money by quickly exposing them to the lowest
possible price at any given airport."
The company will offer its fully integrated, web based suite of
software, which includes its popular "Fast Fuel" and "Smart Fuel"
search and order utilities, "Optimizer" tankering calculator, and a
host of administrative and reporting tools. Operators with their
own fuel contracts can utilize the programs for free. Those
approved to do so may choose to purchase fuel directly from Jet
Fuel Strategies, gaining streamlined billing, invoice auditing, and
other value added benefits.
