Air BP expands in Africa
Flying to Morocco, Mauritius, Ivory Coast or Cape Verde? We have collaborated with Vivo Energy to grow our network in Africa adding six new locations.
You can now use your Air BP Sterling Card to pay for fuel at: Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (MRU/ FIMP) in Mauritius, Abidjan-Felix-Houphouet-Boigny International Airport (ABJ/ DIAP) in Ivory Coast, Nelson Mandela International Airport (RAI/ GVNP) and Sal International Airport (SID/ GVAC) in Cape Verde, and Agadir-Al Massira Airport (AGA/ GMAD) as well as Marrakesh-Menara Airport (RAK/GMMX) in Morocco.
In addition to your Sterling Card, you will also be able to order and pay for fuel via RocketRoute’s MarketPlace platform.
What fuel can you purchase? At all six of the new locations, Air BP will offer Jet A-1 and at the two Moroccan locations (AGA and RAK), Avgas will also be supplied.
Thanks to these latest additions, we now provide fuel at 40 locations in Africa. We have already completed stringent operational audits at each of the new locations to ensure they operate to the same high standards of safety and service as the rest of our global network.

New Sterling Card location in the UK
Humberside International Airport (HUY/EGNJ) has joined our network so you can now pay for Jet A-1 and Avgas with your Sterling Card.
A gateway to North Lincolnshire, Humberside International Airport is situated in Kirmington. It provides easy access to HumberPort, the busiest ports complex in the UK, and is in close proximity to Kingston upon Hull, York and the traditional maritime town of Grimsby.
Weston Aviation expanded its FBO facility at Humberside Airport last year.
