Every day, 4.2 million passengers board a flight*. With increased air traffic, bigger planes and more stringent safety regulations, our runways are being worked harder than ever before.

That is why we’ve developed our most durable bitumen ever: Shell Cariphalte. It’s specially formulated to meet the challenges of high performing airport runways: a proven, high-quality solution designed to make asphalt surfaces better able to withstand climatic extremes and higher contact stresses**.

Helping to reduce runway downtime

Time is money on an airport runway, so reducing the need for maintenance is key. We’ve developed a range of products to help speed up resurfacing, cut maintenance needs and increase the pavement lifecycle, helping you to keep runway downtime to a minimum so your runways can be ready for lift-off in no time. Our premium innovations include Shell Cariphalte Fuelsafe, specially designed to reduce degradation to make asphalt surfaces last longer when exposed to fuel leakage, helping to extend their life.

A global bitumen network

Our global network of manufacturing facilities and terminals means you can rely on us to be there when and where you need us. It’s why we are trusted by more than 100 of the world’s busiest airports, including Heathrow (UK), Dubai International (UAE), Schiphol (Netherlands), Hong Kong International (Hong Kong) and Sultan Hasanuddin International (Makassar, Indonesia).
