Price risk management tailored to you

Price Risk Management Solutions Customized to Your Operations

Price risk management helps you mitigate risk and stabilize cash flows. Our highly effective physical and financial fuel price risk management programs are customized to your budgetary requirements.



Flexible fuel pricing for aviation

Get flexible fuel purchasing options. We offer simple and sophisticated financial instruments and effective physical price control tools such as fixed forward pricing and alternative price formulas.

Working with airport jet indices and at posted price airports, we customize programs to meet your specific needs. Our all-in-one products keep it simple, avoiding complex derivative financial contracts while providing price certainty you need.

To optimize purchasing at the airport level, we help you secure a fixed volume of fuel, at a fixed price, for a specified period. We also allow you to pay for the fuel consumed, avoiding a “take or pay” arrangement. Or you can use our capped pricing option to set an agreed maximum jet fuel price for the duration of an agreement, with no fixed-minimum price.
