Menzies Aviation has expanded its partnership with i6, a digital fuel management technology specialist, across four further UK airports.  

Menzies has been working with the i6 Group for more than five years, utilising its technology at airports such as Los Angeles, Orlando (Florida), McCarran (Las Vegas), London Heathrow, and Liverpool. It will now use i6 tech at London Stansted, Leeds Bradford, Birmingham and Teesside International airports.

Technology being deployed at the four additional UK airports in conjunction with Menzies includes Fusion6, an into-plane refuelling platform, and Reconcile6, a fuel inventory management platform. Together, they offer a range of benefits such as saving operational costs, improving safety, and providing real-time refuelling information and fuel optimisation.

The Fusion6 platform integrates live data from airports and airlines, providing full remote visibility of ground fuelling operations, ensuring the refueller is always in the right place at the right time. Reconcile6 is used to track the movement of fuel across the airport supply chain, offering real-time inventory management, fuel stock accounting, and reconciliation.

Airline and energy suppliers at locations with i6 technology will also be able to access eHandshake and Perspective6 from i6 Group. eHandshake offers real-time refuelling connectivity for into-plane operators and airlines, while Perspective6 provides a real-time view of global airline and supplier information with advanced reporting. These features enable airlines and fuel suppliers to manage their supply chains more effectively, collect data anywhere, and identify further fuel efficiencies.
