Shell Aviation today announces the expansion of its global refueling network to Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB), the second busiest in the Philippines. Shell Aviation now supplies jet fuel at three of the most important international airports in the country – Manila (MNL), Clark (CRK) and Cebu (CEB).
Richard Pereira, General Manager Shell Aviation, Asia Pacific and Middle East, said: “Shell Aviation continues its strategic expansion in key locations with future growth potential like Cebu. We aim to create outstanding value for our customers by delivering world-class aviation fuels and services, safely and on time. Cebu is anexciting addition to our extensive network as we support the progress of the Philippines’ thriving aviation industry.”
Around 8.8 million domestic and international passengers travelled through CEB in 2016, an increase of 13% over 2015. Shell Aviation customers at CEB will benefit from fuel supply security backed by Shell’s integrated supply chain, with 17 refineries and 10 trading hubs around the world; product quality assurance via Shell’s Fuel Quality Assurance System; professional account management providing a single focal point for fuel requirements across Shell’s global network; and access to local expertise by leveraging Shell’s aviation experience in the Philippines.
Albert Tiu, Vice President of Petrologistics Corporation (PLC), Shell Aviation’s into-plane operator at CEBU, said: “As local and international airlines begin to launch new services to and from Cebu and capacity at the airport increases, we are pleased to collaborate with Shell Aviation to help meet customer demands and provide supply security at the airport.”
