ExxonMobil has announced that Kalitta Air will now use Mobil Jet™ Oil II and Mobil™ HyJet™ IV-Aplus across its entire fleet.

Kalitta Air, which currently uses Mobil Jet Oil II as well as Mobilgrease™ 33 and Mobilgrease™ 28 in its Boeing 777 freighter fleet, will commit to using Mobil Jet Oil II in its Boeing 747-400 freighter fleet and transition both to Mobil HyJet IV-Aplus. The airline cited the ability to streamline efficiencies in its procurement and maintenance departments as a key reason for transitioning to ExxonMobil aviation lubricants.

To meet customer demands, Kalitta Air needed solutions to boost efficiencies across its operations, which included lowering maintenance fees, increasing fuel efficiency and streamlining supply chain logistics. When assessing its lubricant inventory, Kalitta Air realised that consolidating to one supplier for its lubricant demands would help the airline realise increased cost savings that could support agile line maintenance.

Kalitta Air turned to Boeing Distribution (formerly Aviall) and ExxonMobil for inventory and supply chain analyses and product recommendations that would optimise efficiencies across its operation. Boeing and ExxonMobil were able to ease the procurement process for Kalitta Air by giving them one place to acquire all of the products they need.
