VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Beginning in October, pilots flying into the Vicksburg Municipal Airport will be able to fuel their own planes.

City officials approved an agreement with Eastern Aviation Fuels Inc. to activate a self-serve station at the airport’s fuel farm south of the terminal. Eastern sells aviation and jet fuel to the city.

Airport Director Sam Washington tells The Vicksburg Post (https://bit.ly/1V5rcHn) the equipment is already installed for self-serve.

Washington installing the self-serve system will save the airport money, because an employee will not have to go the airport nights and weekends to fuel planes. Currently, airport employees are on call nights and weekends to help fuel planes that land at the airport.
