Luxaviation and Shell Aviation will jointly invest in new FBO locations, adding to their existing shared network of outlets through a new strategic alliance. Announcing the collaboration today, the two companies did not provide details as to where new FBOs might be established but indicated that the fuel group and the business aviation services provider expect to expand their combined operations and product portfolios globally.
“By bringing together Luxaviation’s extensive FBO network with our global expertise in fuel supply and airport operations, we are confident this agreement will provide genuine value to our customers,” said Shell Aviation president Anne Mascolo.
Luxaviation, which operates aircraft in multiple countries and already runs FBOs at 24 airports worldwide, views the partnership as means to reducing the environmental impact of its business. “The strategic alliance with Shell Aviation is the mere start of a game-changing cooperation of two players in the industry nurturing a common ambition for a future sustainable aviation industry,” said Luxaviation Group CEO Patrick Hansen.
