OREANDA-NEWS. September 06, 2016. From the end of August 2016, the Avgas 100 LL fuel is available for general aviation users at the airport in Szymany. The Olsztyn-Mazury Airport has now two types of fuel on offer Jet-A1 and aviation gasoline called Avgas. 

Fuel supply and aircraft refuelling services at the Olsztyn-Mazury Airport are provided by LOTOS-Air BP Polska, whose qualified personnel and advanced technical solutions ensure that customers are offered support and access to the highest quality fuels: Jet A-1 and Avgas. All this to make sure that passengers enjoy safe and undisrupted flights, in compliance with the highest global operational safety and fuel quality standards, as confirmed by audits of the Joint Inspection Group (JIG).

What is the difference between Jet A-1 and Avgas fuels? Jet A-1 is the most common fuel used by large, commercial aircraft with gas turbine (turboprop or turbojet) engines. Avgas, by contrast, is used to fuel smaller planes powered by piston engines.

Payments are settled by credit cards: VISA, VISA Electron, MasterCard, MasterCard Electronic, Maestro, American Express, Diners Club, JCB, as well as Air BP Sterling Cards.

By the month, Poland, including the Masuria region, is becoming an increasingly popular destination for foreign tourists and businessmen.

 The Olsztyn-Mazury Airport has a 2.5 km-long runway with full navigation infrastructure (it is equipped with the ILS/DME systems for landing in low visibility), which enables handling of scheduled, charter and general aviation flights. The new Avgas tank has a capacity of 20,000 litres.
