The price of fuel remains the most significant cost of any carrier’s operations. The increasing exodus of the major fuel suppliers from Africa has compounded the problem. Besides, fuel supply reliability and quality is a major problem in some of the African airports and requires the concerted efforts of airlines and suppliers to address the problem.
The Fuel Project seeks to help members address the above issues including lobbying for the removal of monopoly suppliers where possible, encouraging competition among suppliers and providing expertise to participating members in fuel purchase and management, utilizing available experts within the members and/or in the industry.
Membership to the Committee is open to any Member of AFRAA who meets the eligibility criteria established under the rules and procedures of the Project. The following are members of the project:
