In news from the Russia airline industry Gazpromneft-Aero has begun supplying aviation fuel to Meridiana at Domodedovo Airport in Moscow. With regular direct flights to Cagliari, Olbia and Naples on Airbus A320 planes, Meridiana is now the 13th airline refuelled by Gazpromneft-Aero at Domodedovo.
Over the first half of this year, Gazpromneft-Aero supplied some 50,000 tons of aviation fuel to refuel foreign airlines in Domodedovo, or equal to the amount pumped in all of 2013. Gazpromneft-Aero Director General Vladimir Egorov commented via the company’s website:
“In 2014 Domodedovo Airport has become one of the company’s points of growth in terms of the volume of supplies to foreign airlines. This is yet another confirmation of the high quality of the company’s fuel and the benefits of the long-term partnerships offered by Gazpromneft-Aero in all airports where it operates. Our long-term objective is to increase the share of foreign airlines fuelled both in Russia and abroad, which will help strengthen Gazpromneft-Aero’s position on the international market for aviation fuel supplies.”
