Levorato Marcevaggi becomes into-plane provider for all fuel at Milan Linate

As of 1 July, if you’re landing at Milan Linate Airport (LIN/ LIML) in Italy you will be refuelled by Levorato Marcevaggi and benefit from lower pricing. Signature Flight Support will no longer be offering an into-plane service at the airport.

Levorato provide a refuelling service on both the main and General Aviation aprons operating a fleet of six vehicles. One is dedicated to General Aviation operations, but during busy periods additional vehicles are made available. Conveniently, opening hours are from 06:00 to 23:00 with out of hours fuelling available with an afternoon’s notice.

Coinciding with this move to one into-plane service we’ve reduced our Sterling Card prices – visit RocketRoute MarketPlace to view the latest pricing and order in advance.

Since 2011, Levorato have provided an into-plane fuel service at airports across our network in Italy. Look out for them at Rome Fiumicino (FCO/ LIRF), Milan Malpensa (MXP/ LIMC), Venice Marco Polo (VCE/ LIPZ), Bergamo (BGY/ LIME), Naples (NAP/ LIRN) and Treviso (TSF/ LIPH).

Are you exempt from energy tax (MOT) in Germany?

Did you know that if your aircraft has a maximum take-off weight that is less than 12 tonnes, and you are able to provide a valid “Zollerlaubnisschein” (Energy Tax Exemption Certificate), you are exempt from paying MOT when refuelling in Germany?

With German energy tax currently adding between 65 and 72 euro cents a litre to your fuel bill, it is important to know when and how you can be exempt. If you believe you are exempt it is important you let your fueller know before fuelling begins so that they can ensure the correct paperwork is available.

The “Zollerlaubnisschein” form is issued by an airport customs office for your individual aircraft. You need to make this application before your aircraft is fuelled and show the original to the fuelling staff before fuelling starts. A "Zollerlaubnisschein" can be required either for one day only or a specific period of time.

Commercial airlines and commercial charter companies will need to present a copy of their valid Air Operator Certificate (AOC), including Operations Specifications or a Declaration of Competency (DOC) prior to fuelling to qualify for exemption. We recommend that pilots carry additional copies of these certificates when flying in Germany, so they can be handed over to the local fuelling service, as required.

If you do not have the correct paperwork available when you fuel, tax will be charged. You can claim a refund for exempted flights by contacting the German Customs Authority at the airport or at the central German Customs Authority office in Dresden.
