Gazpromneft-Aero, the aviation-fuel business operator of Gazprom Neft, and SCAT Airlines of Kazakhstan have entered into a new agreement to refuel the carrier’s regular flights at Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport in Egypt. The one-year contract can also be extended to other Egyptian airports. This agreement has allowed Gazpromneft-Aero to resume its refueling operations in Egypt for the first time since December 2015.
Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport has become the fifth airport where Gazpromneft-Aero and SCAT cooperate. The company supplies fuel for the planes of the carrier at the international airports of Sanya (China), Goa (India), Phuket and Samoa (Thailand).
Vladimir Egorov, the CEO of Gazpromneft-Aero, said: “The cooperation with SCAT has allowed Gazpromneft-Aero to strengthen its positions in some of the most popular tourist destinations. Ahead of the summer season, we are fully prepared to refuel Russian and foreign airlines in Egyptian airports. We expect that the tourist traffic to this country will increase”.
