Adam Harrison, General Manager of Shell Aviation Europe & South Africa said of the new airport entry: “With this latest addition to the Shell Aviation network, Shell & MOH Aviation will provide our world-class safety and operational standards to yet another Airport partnership. We look forward to continuing this support to the transport infrastructure and the vital tourism and travel industry in Greece.”

Located in The Northern Sporades Island in the Aegean Sea and 17 km from the town of Skyros, Skyros airport served more than 10,700 passengers in 2015, 29% more than in 2014. Air traffic at this location grew by 73% from 2014 to 2015*.

Mr. Petros Zorapas, CEO of Shell & MOH Aviation said: “We are proud to have started fuelling operations at Skyros Airport today. It is our commitment to further invest in, and support Greek tourism during this difficult period for Greece. I would like to thank the support of the local community and authorities which was vital to the successful completion of the project. We hope this investment will encourage charter flights to bring new routes to the Island of Skyros, leading to an increase in tourism levels. “
