Shell extends its global refuelling network into Seletar Airport in Singapore
May 05, 2014
Shell Aviation (Shell) today celebrated the official launch of its refuelling operations and fuel storage management at Seletar Airport, located in the north-eastern part of Singapore.
With this appointment, Shell offers an end-to-end integrated refuelling service to Seletar Airport. Shell now provides fuel at both of Singapore’s civilian airports: Seletar Airport and the Singapore Changi International Airport, the world’s fifth busiest international airport.
Seletar Airport, which is managed by Changi Airport Group (Singapore) Pte Ltd, is Singapore’s secondary civilian airport. It supports international aircraft charters, private flights, medical evacuation, flying schools, business jet operations, maintenance works, repairs and overhauls. Seletar Airport is also a key infrastructure supporting the growth and development of Seletar Aerospace Park, an integrated industrial space for aviation activities.
Shell’s operations at Seletar Airport commenced in April 2014. Aside from refuelling services, Shell brings to Seletar Airport its extensive experience in working with big and small airports to improve overall airport safety and refuelling operating standards.
Mr. Xinsheng Zhang, Vice-President of Shell Aviation said,” This latest business expansion demonstrates Singapore’s importance as a regional centre for Shell Aviation’s Asia operations and underscores Shell’s position as one of the leading global aviation fuels and lubricants suppliers. Shell is proud to play a part in serving Singapore’s growing traffic of commercial airlines and business jets.”
Speaking at the launch ceremony today, Mr. Lee Tzu Yang, Chairman, Shell Companies in Singapore, said, “Given Singapore's strategic position, Seletar Airport is poised to play a pivotal role in the development of the regional business aviation sector. Shell is excited to be part of this growth journey. We look forward to strengthening our ties with Changi Airport Group and to work closely with them towards their aspirations to make Seletar Airport the premier business aviation hub in the region.”
Commenting on the expanded relationship with Shell, Mr. See Seng Wan, General Manager of Seletar Airport said, “We are pleased to welcome Shell as a key partner at Seletar Airport, to provide essential fuel storage management and into-plane refuelling services to our airport users. Shell is one of the industry leaders in aviation fuel supply chain management, with extensive experience in operating fuel facilities in numerous airports worldwide. We are confident that Shell will be able to bring global best practices to Seletar Airport, and benefit our airport users through high assurance in product quality, excellence in service delivery, and continuous improvement through innovations. We look forward to a strong partnership with Shell, to jointly take Seletar Airport to greater heights.”
