Qatar Aviation Services (QAS), a
subsidiary of Qatar Airways Group,
announced its partnership with International
Air Transport Association
(IATA) to become the first ground handler
globally to join the new expansion
of the IATA Environmental Assessment
Programme (IEnvA) for ground service
The IEnvA program for ground service
provides a framework for achieving
environmental sustainability
across all ground operations.
Taking advantage of the knowledge
and experience garnered from
the airline program, ground service
providers can rely on its definitive
guidance to reduce their impact on the
environment, and improving health

and ensure sustainability in its operations, "
Qatar Airways group chief executive
Akbar Al Baker said.
" We're delighted to count Qatar Aviation

by senior vice president Mehmet Murat
Nursel, is committed to minimizing
the environmental impact of its operations,
playing an instrumental role in
helping Hamad International Airport
gain its standing as an environmental
leader among airports globally.
Through its participation, it aims to
meet and exceed the highest environmental
standards while preparing for
future expansion strategies.
The IEnvA program is an Environmental
Management System
initially offered to airlines, which
demonstrates equivalency to the ISO
14001: 2015 environmental management
systems standard. It provides a
structured approach to managing the
environment, as well as reporting and
mitigating environmental impacts. As
a result, organizations are able to more
formally incorporate sustainability
and environmental compliance strategies
into their operations.
Qatar Airways, under the Qatar Airways
Group, first achieved the highest
level of IEnvA accreditation in 2017,
becoming the first airline in the Middle
East to do so.
The airline has since played a key
role in contributing to the successful
development of the IEnvA program.
The program covers all aspects of
Qatar Airways global operations,
including flight and ground operations
and corporate activities.
Air BP Surpasses 500,000
Overwing Fuelings Using
Misfuel Prevention App
Air BP has surpassed a milestone by completing
more than 500,000 overwing fuelings
using its Airfield Automation misfuel
prevention technology through its safe2go
app. With misfueling presenting one of the
significant risks facing aviation, Air BP's
Airfield Automation safe2go technology is
10 || Ground Support Worldwide || September 2022
pioneering the provision of an engineering
barrier to actively help prevent misfueling.
The 500,000th refueling took place at Hamburg
Airport (HAM/EDDH) in Germany.
Airfield Automation was first rolled out
in 2018 and has now been deployed at more
than 490 locations in 44 countries around
the world. Since launching, more than 2.8
million fuelings in total have been processed
using Airfield Automation.
" We are delighted that more than
500,000 overwing fuelings have benefited
from our safe2go app misfuel prevention
technology, " Olivia Stone, vice president
technical services and HSSE, Air BP said.
" Not only does Airfield Automation safe2go
technology provide an additional technological
barrier to help prevent misfueling
but it also enhances efficiency and
reliability in refueling operations. These
combined benefits are attractive to both
operators within the bp network and those
outside who are looking for this type of
technology. "
The safe2go app on a handheld device
in fueling vehicles consolidates data on
airport fueling operations, verifies fueling
requirements and captures an acknowledging
signature from the pilot or airline
Aside from the enhanced safety barrier,
operators benefit from faster, more comprehensive
and more accurate fueling as
well as data delivery.
In 2021, new services were added to the
cloud-based platform, meaning operators
can benefit from the opportunity to further
enhance efficiency.
These upgrades include real-time,
two-way connection between the flight
crew and fuel operator during the aircraft
turnaround at the airfield. From receiving
the preliminary order through to a revised
final order and concluding with an electronic
ticket sign off, Airfield Automation
provides instant visibility and more efficient
refueling operations.
