Jet Fuels
We supply aviation turbine fuels, commonly referred to as jet fuels, to various civil and military specifications in many countries.For many locations this will be Jet A-1, which conforms to the latest version of the Aviation Fuel Quality Requirements for Jointly Operated Systems (AFQRJOS). Jet fuels are specialized products that are manufactured according to very tightly controlled specifications. Almost all jet fuels are derived from crude oil in refineries so whichever grade (or specification) of jet fuel you require, they are all produced in much the same way.

Summary of Jet Fuel Grades

Jet A-1

Jet A-1 is a kerosine grade of fuel suitable for most turbine engined aircraft. It has a flash point minimum of 38 degrees C (100°F) and a freeze point maximum of -47 degrees C. It is widely available outside the U.S.A. To read more about the fuel, download its MSDS now.

Jet A

Jet A is a kerosine grade fuel, normally only available in the U.S.A. It has the same flash point as Jet A-1 but a higher freeze point maximum (-40°C).

Jet B

Jet B is a distillate covering the naphtha and kerosine fractions. It can be used as an alternative to Jet A-1 but because it is more difficult to handle (higher flammability), there is only significant demand in very cold climates where its better cold weather performance is important.


TS-1 is the main jet fuel grade available in Russian and CIS states. It is a kerosine type fuel with slightly higher volatility (flash point is 28C minimum) and lower freeze point (<-50C) compared to Jet A-1.
