Adds Jet fuel contract price management to portfolio
ForeFlight, creator of the most widely-used flight planning and electronic flight bag app for Apple iPad and iPhone, recently announced that it has acquired JetFuelX, a free web-based fuel card management service for owners and operators of turbine aircraft, making it easy to find the lowest prices available from their multiple jet fuel discount program memberships.
“We are thrilled to announce this exciting addition to ForeFlight. The JetFuelX platform is the first of its kind and allows our customers to make timely and cost-effective planning and fuel purchase decisions,” says Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight’s co-founder and CEO. “The free JetFuelX service helps operators get the most out of participating in fuel contract programs and helps fuel providers and FBOs efficiently distribute pricing data to their members.”
“Our primary focus is to enable owners, operators, and flight departments to take full advantage of the tremendous cost savings available in purchasing fuel,” says Jason Talley, JetFuelX founder. “JetFuelX turns a time-consuming and cumbersome process into an elegant and easy-to-use solution that is accomplished in seconds. We are really excited to join the ForeFlight team and continue to expand our services.”
JetFuelX is designed to help everyone, from individual pilots to large flight departments, including charter operators, quickly pinpoint the best fuel prices and eliminate the time-consuming task of managing and comparing fuel card and FBO discount programs. Customers can manage card memberships and aircraft profiles, view prices available at the planned destination, compare prices with nearby airports, and submit fuel releases in a matter of seconds.
Existing JetFuelX customers can continue to enjoy the benefits of this free service. ForeFlight customers can also login to portal.jetfuelx.com with their existing ForeFlight credentials and use the JetFuelX platform at no additional charge. New customers are encouraged to sign up for a free account at www.jetfuelx.com.
