Alongside its world class operational and refuelling services, Shell Aviation has also helped to enhance supply security at Penang by investing in the construction of a new fuel storage facility at the airport. This facility offers an independent supply chain from the existing supplier from refinery through to safe into-plane delivery, enabling customers to maintain seamless operations amidst strong traffic growth.

“Shell Aviation continues to focus its growth strategy on select locations. The significant potential of Penang makes it an ideal addition to our global network,” Richard Pereira, General Manager Asia Pacific & Middle East, Shell Aviation, said. “We look forward to leveraging our 120 years’ experience in the country and extensive expertise in fuel supply globally to support Penang in the next phase of its growth.”

The acting group chief executive officer of Malaysia Airports, Raja Azmi Raja Nazuddin said: “Penang’s strategic location makes it an important connecting hub. Local and overseas airlines have been adding more international routes, helping the airport exceed 7 million passengers in 2017. As an airport operator, supply security, operational excellence and as well as safety are central to our growth strategy, and Shell Aviation’s capabilities in these fields make it a preferred partner. We believe that the combination of local knowledge and global expertise that Shell Aviation brings is the right blend to help us further position Malaysia as a global hub.”

Shell Aviation customers at Penang will benefit from fuel supply security backed by Shell’s integrated supply chain; product quality assurance via Shell’s Fuel Quality Assurance System; professional account management providing a single focal point for fuel requirements across Shell’s global network; and access to local expertise by leveraging Shell's aviation experience in Malaysia.
