Shell has increased its refueling network to Mactan-Cebu International Airport
Marking 55 years of aviation fuel operations this year, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) has expanded the Shell Aviation refueling network to Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB) in the Philippines. PSPC now supplies jet fuel at three of the key international airports in the country, with this latest airport entry, including Manila, Clark and Cebu.
PSPC is well placed to meet its increasing fueling needs as passenger numbers are expected to increase from 4.5 million to more than 12 million per annum by 2018, since CEB is currently the second busiest terminal in the country. Being a true partner of the Philippines in nation-building and progress, the said initiative is part of Shell’s overall strategy to continuously be a good investment opportunity.
PSPC President & CEO, Cesar Romero said, “Shell is proud to achieve a new milestone in the Philippines, and we look forward to supporting Mactan-Cebu International Airport to become a world-class and major international airport in the Philippines, as well as the development of Cebu in becoming a center of trade and tourism.”
Fuel supply security backed by Shell’s integrated global supply chain with 17 refineries and 10 trading hubs globally; product quality assurance via Shell’s Fuel Quality Assurance System; professional account management that provides a single focal point for fuel requirements across Shell’s global network; and access to local expertise by leveraging Shell's 55 years of experience in the Philippines aviation industry are the key advantages that customers will enjoy.
“This new partnership marks a timely step in the right direction. As local and international airlines begin to launch new services to and from Cebu and the capacity at the airport increases, we are pleased to partner with Shell Aviation to help meet current customer demands while also increasing supply security at the airport,” said Albert Tiu, Vice President of PLC at CEB.
