Essar expands UK aviation footprint

Essar Oil (UK) Limited, which owns and operates the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Ellesmere Port, today announced it has begun supplying jet fuel directly to airlines at Cardiff Airport, with new deals having already been secured with various carriers that operate flights from the facility.

These agreements demonstrate further the continued success of the Essar aviation fuels business, with direct supply arrangements now in place with carriers at five major airports across the UK - Manchester, Birmingham, London Stansted, Leeds-Bradford and Cardiff.

Adam Brayne, Aviation & Business Development Manager at Essar, commented, “Adding Cardiff Airport to our UK network is a further chapter in our growth story, as Essar continues to support major airlines through what we hope will be a recovery period for the sector. We look forward to a successful partnership with the airport and are delighted to have already secured direct business with a number of key airline customers there.”

David Walters, Chief Financial Officer of Cardiff Airport, added: “We have been working hard to ensure suitable choice is available to our airline partners at Cardiff Airport, and we are very pleased that Essar has agreed to work with us as a new long-term fuel partner. We really look forward to working closely with the company, as we welcome more flights and airlines back to Cardiff.”
