Fuelworx

Fuelworx, part of the Flightworx group, is a neutral and independent fuel comparison and procurement service. Orbis and Fuelworx began working together in March 2017 after Fuelworx was selected as one of Orbis’s five tender fuel companies.

Between March 2017 and December 2017, the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital was fuelled eight times with Fuelworx. This relationship continued in 2018 with Fuelworx being selected six times to fuel our amazing aircraft.

To celebrate World Sight Day 2019, Fuelworx and Orbis UK have come together to create an innovative fundraising product to connect Fuelworx clients to the work of the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital. For every customer who uses Fuelworx to re-fuel, they will be given the option to donate to Orbis as part of the transaction.

  • $20 of suspended fuel could run the operating theatre for one hour or the classroom and support equipment
  • $200 of suspended fuel could run the two generators for ½ day supporting the operating theatre, chillers, med-gas unit, aircraft power and classroom
  • $400 of suspended fuel could run both generators for one day
  • $2000 of suspended fuel could run the Flying Eye Hospital for one week of a programme

Jennette Bentley, General Manager at Flightworx Aviation Ltd said:

Flightworx is proud to be a supporter of Orbis and the Flying Eye Hospital and have been working closely with Orbis since March 2017. Together, we have created an innovative fundraising product called “suspended fuel” and look forward to encouraging our customers to join with us and support Orbis even more!
