World Fuel Services (WFS) is celebrating a successful first year as full-service fuels and solutions provider to TAG Farnborough Airport.
The UK-based airport is acclaimed for its offering, a reflection of the total service culture and facilities that are in place at the award-winning FBO site. WFS have been a part of that offering for over 15 years, providing a range of solutions including credit and payment solutions.
Over the last year, this relationship has advanced further and following a competitive tender, World Fuel Services took on the complete fuel and service provision at Farnborough in December 2016, following its own global growth based on the ExxonMobil aviation business acquisition.
This vital deal provided WFS with the capabilities to be a front runner in the market in offering a full service and physical on the ground solution for the airport. World Fuel Services’ vice president Mark Amor commented: “We have always had a relationship with TAG Aviation, however in the past we were often categorised as the payments and solutions partner, bringing customers, helping manage traffic and promotion and some marketing.
“The game changer for us was when we bought the ExxonMobil business, which transformed our physical capability, positioning us as a leading supplier of fuel & service solutions to airports and FBO’s.”
The announcement is another success story for WFS, which has been enjoying unprecedented growth across Europe, fueled by key contract wins such as TAG Farnborough Airport.
Roger Walker, Director Airport Operations, TAG Farnborough Airport said: “We were pleased to welcome World Fuel Services to TAG Farnborough Airport and they have provided excellent service to our customers throughout this year. We look forward to working together with them during 2018.”
Amor added: “We are committing to designing and delivering bespoke and flexible services for our customers. We are doing things far more efficiently, not just in the price of fuel but in the way that we provide other on-the-ground services as well. It is in this way that we have successfully worked with TAG Farnborough Airport throughout the past 12 months, and look forward to 2018 being equally positive.”
