LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2013) - UVair®, the fueling division of Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc., announced that it has reached an exclusive agreement with FlightAware® to integrate customer-specific UVair® jet fuel pricing into FlightAware.com™. Demos of the free tool will be available in Universal® exhibit #C11016 and FlightAware® exhibit #C9836 at NBAA 2013 in Las Vegas.
"What's unique about this agreement is the ability for members of the UVair® Fuel Program to view their own real-time jet fuel prices on FlightAware®, rather than the FBO's posted retail price," said Greg Cox, Senior Vice President, UVair®. "Customers then have the ability to submit a fuel release. We're excited that together with FlightAware® we can now offer our card members an additional tool to access and order UVair® fuel."
The service is free for all members of the UVair® Fuel Program. To access, FlightAware® users simply search for an ICAO, then click the FBO's tab. There, they can login to their UVair® account. If they don't already have a UVair® account, they can follow the login link to join the program. There are no fees to join the program. Alternatively, operators can join by visiting http://www.uvair.com/save/.
"We partnered with UVair® as part of our mission to make FlightAware® the best website to help business aviation operators make informed decisions," said Daniel Baker, CEO, FlightAware®. "Adding live, customer-specific UVair® jet fuel pricing provides the information that business aviation users need and in a quick, easy format."
