National Fuel Supply Partnership Viva Energy
The Royal Flying Doctor Service is delighted to have a long and mutually beneficial partnership with Viva Energy Australia.
The new partnership will see Viva Energy become the national fuel supply partner of the RFDS, supplying fuel for RFDS aircraft as well as on-the-ground transport.
Viva Energy supplies about a quarter of Australia’s fuel requirements and is the only domestic manufacturer of Aviation gasoline (Avgas) – a critical fuel used by RFDS in transporting patients from remote regional locations to the healthcare they need.
Viva Energy CEO Scott Wyatt said the partnership is based on shared values and vision and the mutual focus on providing critical aviation services to Australia’s rural and most remote areas.
“We are incredibly proud to manufacture and supply the fuel critical to the services that the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia delivers,” Mr Wyatt said.
“Both organisations have long proud histories in Australia – with RFDS servicing rural and remote patient care for over 90 years and the business we operate providing the fuels needed by Australian industries for more than 120 years.”
