Aviation Fuel

Jet fuel or aviation turbine fuel is a type of aviation fuel designed for use in aircraft powered by gas-turbine engines. It is colorless to straw-colored in appearance. The most commonly used fuels for commercial aviation are Jet A and Jet A-1, which are produced to a standardized international specification. Jet A1 belongs to the wider family of jet fuels used to power all jet aircraft. It is the most common; although Jet A is also common in the US (the two differ mostly in their freezing point, and can be used interchangeably). Through the refining process, various fuels are produced at different distillation points. Kerosene and diesel fuels (to which jet fuel belongs) come off first and are, therefore, easier to obtain.

Active Petroleum has the knowledge base to ensure product delivered, on spec products, across these increasingly complex supply chains. We ensure verified supply, through an extensive and diverse global network of jet fuel supply.
