KANSAS CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (MCI)
Allied Aviation History at MCI:
Allied Aviation has been the provider of into-plane fueling, management of the tank farm and the associated fueling system at Kansas City International Airport since the airport opened in 1972. Prior to the opening, Allied provided design and financial assistance to the airlines serving Kansas City in the development of the new fuel facility at the airport. In 1972 when the fuel system project was completed, the airport had a state of art fuel system that eventually other airports would use as a model in fuel system designs.
Allied continues to be the sole source of commercial aviation fueling at Kansas City International Airport. Over the years, we have implemented new technology to provide aircraft fueling. In 1994, Allied was one of the first locations to utilize a solar powered hydrant cart.
In November of 2004 the airport completed a $258 million Terminal Improvement Project. This project allowed for more aircraft to be accommodated as well as allowing for more passenger traffic to maneuver throughout the terminals. In footsteps of these improvements, Allied, in conjunction with the Airport Authority and the MCI airlines, are upgrading the fuel system to accommodate this additional demand for air travel at Kansas City.
