Duabi Airshow: Air BP builds on 85 years in the Middle East

Posted 12 November 2017 · Add Comment

Air BP is attending the show some 85 years since it first set up operations in the region.

With around 100 commercial aviation, general aviation and military customers in the Middle East, Air BP’s operations have grown considerably over recent decades.

One of Air BP’s latest customers in the region is the Emirates Airline Flight Training Academy. Air BP recently won a contract to supply the new academy with Avgas and fuelled the first two Cirrus SR22 G6 training aircraft on October 31 2017.

The academy, which was developed by Emirates Airline to train beginner pilots, is located near Al Maktoum International Airport and scheduled to open this month.

The company has also recently started supplying fuel to Dubai-based Emirates Airline at São Paulo Guarulhos International and Viracopos Campinas International airports in Brazil. This is in addition to the existing operation at Rio de Janeiro International. The first Air BP-fuelled flight, an Airbus A380, departed from São Paulo Guarulhos International Airport bound for Dubai International on November 3 2017.

Christian Tabet, managing director Air BP, Middle East & Northern Africa, said: “We are very proud of our heritage in the region. Over the past 85 years we have shared our knowledge and expertise, contributing to the development of aviation fuelling operations here. The Middle East is an important region for Air BP and the Dubai show offers a great opportunity for us to meet with new and existing customers. Our success here is based on our strengths in safe and reliable operations, investments in key infrastructure projects and a deep commitment to our customers.”
