Monterey Fuel Company has extended its partnership with Avfuel, solidifying the fuel company as the branded supply partner for Del Monte Aviation and Monterey Jet Center, its two FBOs at Monterey Regional airport in California, for another decade.

Monterey Fuel Company VP Matt Wright says: "We are extremely pleased to enter another decade of partnership and sustainable aviation innovation with Avfuel. Our dedication to service and commitment to sustainability align perfectly with Avfuel's values. This extension allows us to further our efforts in creating a greener environment for the future of aviation." 

David Mittleman, Avfuel senior sales manager, adds: "The entire Avfuel team couldn't be prouder to continue its alignment with the award-winning Monterey Fuel Company. By executing a long-term agreement, both organisations are signalling their dedication to long-term initiatives in sustainability and customer care, including furthering the adoption of sustainable aviation fuel. Monterey Fuel Company's continued support of sustainable practices sets a commendable example for the industry and provides an ideal partner for Avfuel as we continuously work to enhance adoption of sustainable offerings."

Monterey Fuel Company is a pioneer in SAF adoption. Its FBO, Monterey Jet Center, was the first Avfuel Network FBO to consistently provide the sustainable fuel. With SAF supply extended to Del Monte Aviation as well, Avfuel and Monterey Fuel Company continue to work together to find ways to increase SAF's uptake in the Monterey Peninsula and beyond via direct purchases, and book and claim inventory. 

As part of the extended partnership, Monterey Fuel Company and Avfuel will explore opportunities to further enhance sustainability efforts, including supporting initiatives for hydrogen and electric-powered aircraft. Both companies are committed to working together to make the airport more sustainable and environmentally-friendly for the future. 

"Our companies share a common goal of prioritising customer satisfaction," says Wright. "By partnering with Avfuel, we can provide our customers with a premier suite of programmes, including Avfuel Contract Fuel, AVTRIP rewards and sustainable offerings, and the live support that comes with them. We are proud to be associated with Avfuel and look forward to continuing to leverage its resources to support our customers with exceptional service."
