Gulf Aviation – Certas Energy’s aviation brand – will provide a supply of Jet A1 fuel to the airport, which is one of the busiest in the UK, servicing more than 13 million passengers every year.
“We’re thrilled to confirm our partnership with Birmingham Airport,” said Alex Murphy, head of Gulf Aviation which has been supplying the UK aviation market for more than eight years.
“We’ve grown as a business by listening to our customers and developing services and solutions that respond to their needs and that help them run their companies more efficiently. It’s something I know Birmingham Airport were impressed with and it played a key part in their decision-making process
“Gulf Aviation will continue to have strong ties to private and business airfields alongside flying clubs; however, supplying directly to large commercial airports is certainly part of our future growth strategy,” added Alex.
Bob Graham, operations director at Birmingham Airport, said:
“This new partnership comes at a really exciting time for Birmingham Airport as we continue to expand the number of carriers and destinations we offer and position ourselves as an attractive airport for carriers looking to expand services into the UK.”
A number of airplanes including Emirates, British Airways, KLM, Vueling, Iberia Express, TUI, Qatar Airways and Thomas Cook Airlines fly from Birmingham Airport, with passengers taking domestic flights within the UK and international flights to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, North America and the Caribbean
