The following sections provide details on what each card is and where they can be used.

Aviation Into-plane Reimbursement Card®

AIR Card® Program

The U.S. Government AIR Card® Program is a government program that provides the Department of Defense military services and federal civilian agencies a means to procure aviation fuel, fuel-related supplies and approved ground services worldwide at both DLA Energy contract locations and commercial airports. The program is based on a charge card, which can be electronically swiped, mechanically imprinted or hand scribed onto a commercial delivery ticket, or DD1898. For more information on using the U.S. Government AIR Card® Program visit the AIR Card® Program page.

Department of Defense Fleet Card

DoD Fleet Card Program

The Department of Defense Fleet Card Program uses a fuel charge card to provide the DoD and U.S. Coast Guard a means to procure ground fuel, parts, maintenance and roadside assistance worldwide at commercial service stations while conducting official government business. The DoD Fleet card is limited to vehicles owned or leased by the DoD. The General Service Administration wet-leased vehicles are not covered under this program. The program is managed by DLA Energy under a tailored task order with the GSA Smart Pay®3 contract. The GSA SmartPay®3 contract was awarded to three banks based on their proposals meeting all the requirements of the contract. After evaluating each proposal against the DoD Fleet Card program requirements, DLA Energy selected U.S. Bank/Voyager as the DoD Fleet Card contractor.

Swipe SEA Card® Program
