Linfox and Viva Energy fuel airshow displays

Logistics company, Linfox, and energy distribution company, Viva Energy, supported this year’s Australian International Airshow.

Linfox said via social media that it worked with Viva Energy to deliver fuel to power the aeronautical displays at the Australian International Airshow at Avalon Airport in Geelong, Victoria. The event was open to the public 1-3 March 2019.

“We’re excited to support the Avalon Airshow in refuelling the aircraft leaving spectators spellbound,” Viva Energy tweeted via Twitter. “This week Linfox is transporting around six loads of Viva Energy jet fuel daily to Avalon Airport.”

“Bringing such a large scale show together is no small feat, and I’m proud of the role that we play in supporting Avalon Airport and helping organisers bring this event to life,” said Viva Energy Refinery General Manager, Thys Heyns.

“Over the last few years we have invested heavily in the Geelong Refinery to increase the amount of fuel we can transport to Avalon Airport to support their ever-increasing activities and I’m pleased to see that our fuel can also bring so much delight for spectators,” he said.

The Geelong Refinery supplies 100 per cent of Avalon Airport’s jet fuel, supporting day-to-day operations for commercial airlines and also for special events such as the Airshow.

Jet Fuel Gantry Operator, John Begg, is one of many faces at Geelong Refinery helping to manufacture the fuel behind the Airshow.

“I’m proud that our great quality jet fuel - made by us here in Geelong - ends up exclusively refuelling the Avalon International Airshow,” he said.

The Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition is one of Asia Pacific's most prestigious aviation and aerospace events and the most comprehensive aviation, aerospace and defence exposition in the southern hemisphere, according to the event organisers.
