How it works

You can use your Air bp sterling card at an Air bp unattended site by swiping it at the pump. Alternatively at our serviced sites you can provide the details to one of the Air bp Agents. They’ll detail the transaction on a manual delivery docket and give the pilot a copy.


These delivery transactions are downloaded to a central system, which produces invoices that are sent to customers. Payment will be due according to your account trading terms.
