Shell inks fuel supply deal with Dubai Airports
Dubai, October 21, 2010
Shell Aviation (SAV) has signed a fuel concession agreement with Dubai Airports to operate as a fuel supplier at the new Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International airport.
The agreement will enable Shell Aviation to operate as one of the suppliers of fuel and refuelling services to airlines at the newest Dubai airport.
It follows other strategic entries by Shell this year at London City Airport in the United Kingdom and Roskilde Airport in Denmark.
Shell-MRPL, Shell’s marketing joint venture with Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals in India, has also expanded its aviation fuel supply network this year from two airports (Bangalore and Hyderabad) to six airports in total with the addition of Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Chennai and Calicut.
“We are delighted to sign this concession agreement to operate at what is planned to be the world's largest passenger and cargo hub. Shell currently manages the Dubai International fuel farm on behalf of the industry,” stated Richard Jory, regional general manager, Shell Aviation, Middle East, South and Central Asia, and Africa.-TradeArabia News Service
