Valcora, the Switzerland-headquartered fuel purchasing service founded in 2017, is further expanding its international presence with the opening of a new office in Johannesburg, South Africa.


The nation’s capital city is one of the main hubs for business aviation on the continent, making it the ideal location for Valcora’s first African venture. The two-person operation will be responsible for raising the company’s profile, as well as highlighting the benefits of the technically sophisticated, yet simple to use fuel-purchasing system across the continent.

The existing strength of the South African business aviation fleet, the removal of operating restrictions in the skies over east Africa and the growth of the business aviation fleet in countries such as Angola, Ethiopia, and Kenya also supported the decision. Particular benefit to African operators flying to Europe is Valcora’s extensive experience handling the complexities of European taxes. The intelligent system automatically calculates fiscal obligations in Europe ensuring customer tax commitments are correctly and fairly determined to optimise operating budgets.
