Emirates fuels deal for Moscow
Emirates has signed a long-term fuel supply agreement for all regular flights at Moscow's Domodedovo airport with Gazpromneft-Aero.
The rapidly-expanding Russian retailer will supply jet fuel to Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER for its two daily flights between Moscow and Dubai. In December it will start refueling the Emirates’ Airbus A380, when it commences regular flights to Russia.
The aviation fuel which is supplied by Gazpromneft-Aero meets both Russian and international standards. The proximity of Gazprom Neft’s refineries to Domodedovo airport allow for fast direct fuel supply which provides both favorable pricing to air carriers and guarantees that the necessary volumes of fuel are delivered.
Vladimir Egorov, CEO of Gazpromneft-Aer0 said: "Partnering with Emirates marks a new stage of Gazpromneft-Aero’s development. It is further evidence of strengthening our company’s position in the world market for aviation fuel. We pride ourselves on offering our partners beneficial long-term agreements for fuel supply and we look forward to working with more major international carriers in the future".
