24/7 service, worldwide
+41 (0) 41 2288020
The newly formed partnership to incorporate a business aviation offering.
iFuel was founded in 2012 as a joint venture between three innovative aviation companies: London-based charter broker Open Aero; fuel supplier Jet Aero Fuels (JAF); and Switzerland-based 28 East Group, with the aim of providing cost effective and efficient refueling services for private aircraft throughout the CIS region.

As fuel is the most significant operational cost of any charter we anticipate that having direct access to aviation gas and premium ground handling services, at beneficial rates, will ensure large jet charters will select iFuel in the future. This deal buoys up iFuel commitment to providing aviation clients with the best service and pricing possible, and more importantly will open further potential markets for all of the iFuel partners in the CIS region and further afield.
