Canadian Fuel Consortia History

The traditional arrangement at an airport is that fuel suppliers have tank farms and distribution systems that are proprietary to their product and service. The distribution system at many non-consortium locations is by tanker truck, therefore, the supplier will have a tank farm to receive and store jet fuel and tank trucks to move fuel from the tank farm to the aircraft of their customers. This is the system that is seen in most, if not all, non-North American locations and at most small locations in North America. The attraction of such an arrangement is that the suppliers can get into business on the airfield for a relatively low capital investment.

Many years ago, the major airlines in Canada and the United States organized themselves to form what is now known as fuel committees. The goal of organizing themselves into a committee is to achieve the optimal economic advantage for the group, each member, and to achieve the lowest environmental impact for the operation. In such an arrangement, the fuel committee, which is really a consortium of member airlines, will invest in the tank farm to receive and store the fuel, and a hydrant system that takes the fuel underground right to the gates on the airfield.

The environmental advantage is that there are far fewer tank trucks operating on the airfield. The economic advantage to the airlines is that the tank farms are open to all suppliers of jet fuel, without duplicate capital investment to accommodate additional supply sources. The operating costs of a hydrant system are much cheaper than operating a fleet of tank trucks. The capital investment for the construction of a hydrant system prevents smaller airports from going into the consortium arrangement.

The oldest consortium in Canada is located at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). Pearson has had a consortium and a hydrant system in operation since the mid-1960s. The second oldest consortium in Canada is at Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL). It became a duel station consortium with the introduction of Montréal-Mirabel International Airport (YMX) in 1992.

Canadian locations with full consortiums, include:

  • Calgary – YYC
  • Edmonton – YEG
  • Halifax – YHZ
  • Hamilton – YHM
  • Montréal – YUL
  • Ottawa – YOW
  • Toronto – YYZ
  • Vancouver – YVR
  • Winnipeg – YWG

Limited consortium locations in the Atlantic region, where the membership is limited are:

  • Charlottetown – YYG
  • Fredericton – YFC
  • Moncton – YQM
  • Saint John – YSJ
  • St. John’s – YYT
  • Sydney – YQY
