WORLD FUEL SERVICES & CAA DELIVER JOINT PROGRAM FOR INTERNATIONAL RATES

World Fuel Services (WFS) and Corporate Aircraft Association (CAA) announced a new program to provide exclusive international rates to the CAA membership. As part of the program, CAA named World Fuel | Colt Trip Support as its preferred provider and is offering an enhanced AVCARD program to eligible members. CAA will utilize World Fuel Services’ unique supply position and leading contract fuel program to provide international pricing and setup capability to the CAA community.

Previously, CAA members had access to US domestic rates and limited international locations. Now, members can access more than 2,050 international locations with negotiated prices. The international fuel discount program is supported 24/7 by WFS’ global fuel logistics team with a dedicated FuelFinder website and 800 number. The secure website allows members to quote exclusive CAA rates and set up fuel. CAA and WFS will launch the program in the second quarter of 2017. More detail on access and logins for CAA members will be provided in the coming months.

“We surveyed our membership to gauge interest in an international rate program and received an overwhelmingly positive response,” explained Thomas Prevost Jr., President, CAA. “We selected WFS as our partner due to its global supply and commitment to a high-level of support.”

The new program also includes special rates and programs for Trip Support and AVCARD®. World Fuel | Colt will be the preferred Global Trip Support partner and will offer a special discounted administrative fee for CAA members. The enhanced AVCARD program features extended terms and will be made available to eligible members.

“We are excited to work with CAA, a truly premier association in Business Aviation,” said Malcolm Hawkins, Senior Vice President, Business Aviation for World Fuel Services. “CAA members will receive exclusive access to international negotiated rates and pay less for international fuel and trip support. To make sure they have a great experience, we have leveraged our global resources and built dedicated web applications with 24/7 global support.”

CAA and WFS are targeting early second quarter to release the program. In the first quarter, they will run a short customer pilot before rolling out to the complete membership.
