Shell Aviation will operate the fuel storage facilities and aircraft refuelling services at the airport through its subsidiary, Avitair, and will be the sole provider of Jet A-1 and Avgas.
It claims that the start of operations at Brest Bretagne, the biggest airport in Brittany and 16th largest in France, supports its strategy to expand at key locations with growth potential in Europe.
“We are excited about our collaboration with Brest and the opportunity to bring our experience and know-how to this dynamic location," said Melanie Lane, Shell Aviation Europe' general manager.
"By providing safe, quick and efficient refuelling services, we want to help new and existing customers be even more competitive in this challenging industry. With approximately one million passengers a year, Brest is just the right place to do that."
André Jour, vice president of the Brest Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIMB) which manages the airport, commented: "We believe that our collaboration will contribute to achieving great success in the coming years."
