Titan Aviation Fuels acquired Geneva, Switzerland-based aviation fuel reseller Akryl, the companies announced today. The move will allow Titan, which supports more than 550 U.S. FBOs in its network, to extend its aviation fuel supply footprint, as well as contract fuel program for U.S. and Canadian customers, to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Akryl will be rebranded as Titan Aviation Fuels and will maintain offices in Geneva along with Dublin, Ireland.
Akryl’s online digital fuel procurement platform allows flight departments to view aviation fuel pricing in real-time and make fuel purchases worldwide, Titan said. This platform can also be integrated with a customer’s operations software to enable a more streamlined and efficient way to manage fueling operations.
“Not only does the [addition of Akryl] give our contract fuel program an international footprint for our North American-based customers,” said Titan Aviation Fuels president Robbie Stallings, “but also provides access to Titan programs for European-based customers traveling to North America. As a result…[this will] drive international traffic to our extensive Titan-branded FBO network.”
Titan’s non-fuel support services include a pilot loyalty program, aviation card processing, aviation insurance, quality control training, Atlas FBO management software, equipment leasing and financing, and online aviation parts store.
