Gazprom Neft refuelling volumes at Sheremetyevo airport up ten percent in 1Q 2016
Gazpromneft Aero, operator of the Gazprom Neft aviation fuels business, has seen retail sales of aviation fuels at Sheremetyevo Airport, Moscow, increase by 10-percent year-on-year in 1Q 2016, to more than 170,000 tonnes — the result of greater supplies for flights operated by Aeroflot, Volga-Dnepr Airlines, Air China and airBaltic , as well as the start of operations with new partners, including Czech Airlines and Vueling. Gazpromneft Aero is now supplying the aircraft of 30 carriers, 17 of which are international.
A dedicated alternative refuelling complex for operations at Sheremetyevo was built by Gazpromneft Aero in 2012 — currently the most cutting-edge and high-technology complex in Russia, awarded the International Aviation Transport Association’s (IATA’s) highest quality rating for aviation refuelling facilities in 2013. The refuelling complex is equipped with a unique water-treatment system. Purification levels are 6 mg per litre vis-à-vis mechanical contamination, and 1 mg per litre in respect of oil products
Vladimir Egorov, CEO, Gazpromneft-Aero, commented: Changes to the structure of the Russian aviation transport market notwithstanding, we have been able to maintain — and, indeed, grow — supply volumes at our key asset — the Sheremetyevo refuelling complex. Thanks to its adherence to the highest quality, service and safety standards, this facility is attracting an ever increasing number of Russian and international carriers. We are committed to further expanding our client base throughout Russia’s most important airports, and to guaranteeing high-quality fuel and services.“
