eJet was engaged to carry out this wide-scale inspection of aviation fuel facilities and operations at all 27 civilian airports in the Kingdom on behalf of General Administration of Civil Aviation. It was the first holistic review of all airports that had been carried out. While some of the airports rank as major international airports on the global top 100 scale (having in excess of 30 million passengers per year), many others are regional or domestic airports with fewer than half a million passengers.
Accordingly, the inspection regime carried out had to recognise and take into account the differences (e.g. hydrant/non-hydrant operations, intensive round-the-clock fuelling activities/few flights per
day etc.) yet at the same time come up with a clear view of the safety and efficiency of facilities and operations across one large country.
The inspections were carried out according to JIG principles, however the reports for each location included modified versions of the JIG checksheets to take into account the different characteristics of the airports.
Each airport was the subject of an individual report, and the reports for all 27 airports were bound into a single main report with country summary and headline recommendations – which was formally presented to the client at the end of the assignment. As with all eJet projects, a customer care phase followed the completion of the work, during which support to the client and advice on implementation is provided.
