Avfuel partners with FBO Meridian Hayward

As an Avfuel-branded location, Meridian Hayward’s clients will benefit from the AVTRIP loyalty programme and competitive fuel rates processed through Avfuel Contract Fuel at more than 3,000 locations worldwide.

“We are very excited to partner with Avfuel as our fuel supplier,” said Carlos Rodriguez, general manager, Meridian Hayward. “In addition, its focus on integrating sustainable aviation fuel [SAF] into the supply chain will be an asset as we work to expand our own efforts in that area.”

Meridian also provides ramp services, including Ground Power Units (GPU), lavatory service, potable water service and quick turnarounds. It also holds IS-BAH Stage II accreditation and Safety 1st certification from the National Air Transportation Association (NATA).

“We are honoured the Meridian team entrusted Avfuel to help care for its team’s and customers’ needs,” said Joel Hirst, senior vice president of Sales, Avfuel. He added that the addition to the Avfuel Network provides another “premier” flying and fuelling location in the heart of the Golden State.
