- Business Line
A large amount of aviation fuel is consumed daily. This fuel is transferred from oil refineries on the Tokyo Bay aboard oil tankers, unloaded at the Chiba Port Aviation Fuel Terminal, transferred Narita International Airport via pipelines, and fed to aircraft through pipes installed under the apron via our Servicer (fueling vehicle). The Wing Service using this system, known as a hydrant system, is our core business. We supply fuel to aircraft from countries worldwide based on daily flight schedules. We fueled as many as 80,000 aircraft in 2010, with the total volume of fuel amounting to as much as 4 million kL. We pay the utmost attention to supply fuel safely and promptly, according to the requirements of each airline, thus providing high-quality services.
In November 2011, we adopted Wireless WAN, linking office and refueling vehicles, a next-generation system that enables us to monitor real-time job progress.
We fuel aircraft swiftly on a daily basis according to airline requirements, which vary from airline to airline.
