Air BP will provide free jet fuel for use by the helicopters of a number of UK air ambulance services, supporting their life-saving work during the current coronavirus pandemic. The air ambulance crews are on stand-by 24/7, ready to respond to emergencies where they are needed most.

All these services are charitable organisations that BP already supplies with jet fuel. Those included in this initiative, in place for at least the month of April, are Great Western Air Ambulance Charity based at Almondsbury; Midlands Air Ambulance Charity at Strensham and Cosford; Wales Air Ambulance Charity at Dafen and Yorkshire Air Ambulance at Topcliffe and Nostell Priory.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Great Western Air Ambulance receive fuel directly from Air BP. Wales Air Ambulance and Midlands Air Ambulance Charity are supplied by Air BP customer Babcock International.

Jon Platt, CEO Air BP, says: “We are pleased to be able to play a small part and support these emergency service organisations as they continue to provide a critical service to communities in these difficult times. Our commitment to safe, reliable fuelling operations remains unwavering, and we're grateful for the hard work of our frontline Air BP operators who continue to enable us to meet the needs of our customers."

This initiative follows BP's earlier announcement that it is supplying free fuel to the UK's emergency services ground transport vehicles.
