Gazpromenft-Aero, operator of the Gazprom Neft aviation refuelling business, has concluded a new agreement with Belarussian carrier Belavia, under which it will be responsible for refuelling scheduled international Belavia flights at Dubai International Airport (United Arab Emirates (UAE)).
Gazpromneft-Aero handles “wing-tip” refuelling at international airports throughout the UAE in partnership with that country’s national aviation refuelling company — while Dubai-based client airlines, in turn, enjoy guaranteed refuelling services throughout those Russian and CIS airports at which Gazpromneft-Aero has a presence.
“Our partnership with Balavia goes back four years. As well as refuelling the company’s scheduled flights in Dubai, Gazpromneft-Aero also services Belavia at international airports in Novosibirsk, Ekaterinburg, Kaliningrad and Voronezh. As international air services resume, we stand ready to provide a high-quality service to our Belarusian partners in other popular destinations in Russia and abroad.”Vladimir Egorov Director General, Gazpromneft-Aero
“Our specialists have been working on opening up scheduled flights to Dubai International Airport for some time, and we were delighted to be able to operate our first flight on 19 February. High-quality servicing of our aircraft — specifically in terms of fuel quality — has always been important to us, which is why we only choose reliable partners. We look forward to continuing our collaboration on other routes in the airline’s network, going forward.”Igor Cherginetz Director General, Belavia
