Built on the Legacy of the legendary Flying Tigers with aviation fuel coursing through its veins Mercfuel has been helping its customer’s combat ever increasing fuel costs for over forty years. MercFuel enables hundreds of fractional, corporate, commercial and air cargo carriers to reduce their exposure to the volatile fuel markets while enjoying credit and competitive fuel pricing.

Commercial Fuel

With today’s volatile oil prices, MercFuel plays an important role for its U.S. and international airline customers as one of only a few companies across the globe that is able to access aviation fuel and resell it, utilizing its purchasing power that is in excess of 400 million gallons of jet fuel annually.

Through strategic relationships on all the major continents, MercFuel is not only able to source fuel but also ensure that it’s delivered into planes across the globe.

Corporate Fuel

Integrity, customer loyalty, and thought leadership are the hallmarks of Merc Fuels offering in corporate aviation. No other company has sold as much fuel to fractional operators over the last two decades. For private/corporate aviation, MercFuel has developed its own proprietary fuel sales collection system, dubbed Solar, which vastly improves the fuel transaction data collection process. This state-of-the-art system provides corporate and fractional jet customers the benefit of increased accuracy throughout the fuel transaction chain, as well as back-office interfaces to better manage fuel accounts.

Mercfuel customer list reads like a “who’s who” of U.S. and international aviation, including: Aeroflot, China Southern Airways, Lan Chile Airlines, Net Jets, to flight departments for Fortune 500 companies.
