Air BP offers aid

As the impact of Covid-19 touches every corner of the globe, fuel supplier Air BP has been active in assisting communities around the world through a number of initiatives, working with customers and partners.

In France it is supporting an initiative led by Aviation Sans Frontières, an aviation charity providing humanitarian assistance, by donating 60,000 litres of jet fuel for flights dedicated to transporting medical staff and equipment between French hospitals. These flights are carried out free of charge when requested by medical authorities drawing on its 50 locations in the country.

In the UK, Air BP is providing free jet fuel for use by the helicopters of a number of UK air ambulance services, supporting their life-saving work during the pandemic. All these services are charitable organisations it already supplies with jet fuel. Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Great Western Air Ambulance receive fuel directly from Air BP, whilst Wales Air Ambulance and Midlands Air Ambulance Charity are supplied by Air BP customer Babcock International.

Air BP has been working with its procurement team to donate 35,000 N95 masks to the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) in Australia for their frontline staff. Its donation builds on a long-standing relationship with the organisation which spans decades of providing bespoke fuelling services.

For the US, Air BP is donating three million gallons of jet fuel to customers FedEx and Alaska Airlines to support the timely delivery of medical supplies and other essential goods, such as food and mail, to areas of the US at greatest risk from Covid-19.
