Gulf Aviation, which is national fuel supplier Certas Energy’s aviation brand, secured a supply contract to provide the essential supply of Jet A1 fuel to the airport which offers flights to short haul and long haul destinations through a number of airlines including Flybe, KLM, Vueling, Iberia Express, Thomson Airways, Ryanair and Thomas Cook Airlines. The deal also includes refuelling vehicles.
Gulf Aviation, which has been supplying the UK aviation market for more than seven years, is headed up by Alex Murphy. Commenting on the contract win, Alex said: “Since Gulf Aviation’s inception in 2009, the company has been servicing smaller private and business airfields, as well as flying clubs. While this continues to form the core business, during the past five years our scope has extended to regional airports and supplying direct to airlines.
“This latest contract with Cardiff Airport is an important win for us, extending our work with regional airports, and enabling us to showcase the benefits of working with a specialist supplier with extensive experience of the aviation industry.”
Deb Barber, CEO at Cardiff Airport said: “As the Airport grows passengers will remain the lifeblood of the business however we are focussed on diversifying our offer and in house capabilities. Working with Gulf Aviation is a key step forward in developing choice for our commercial airlines and maintenance, repair and overhaul operations.”
