PKN ORLEN solidifies its foothold at Prague airport
PKN ORLEN has achieved aviation fuel sales of 100m litres at Václav Havel Airport Prague. Its operations at this international airport were launched on April 1st 2017.
Having established a foothold in Prague only ten months ago, we can already boast a 20% share of its aviation fuel sale market. This means we are the second largest fuel supplier to both local and international airlines operating into that airport. It is a very competitive market, so we keep monitoring it with an eye out for opportunities to further expand our activities in that area - said Zbigniew Leszczyński, Member of the PKN ORLEN Management Board, Sales.
The product is delivered from a nearby refinery in Kralupy operated by the ORLEN Group’s UNIPETROL, the only manufacturer of JET A-1 fuel on the Czech market, and the refuelling services are performed by Czech Airlines Handling, a.s., a certified airport agent with long-standing experience in aircraft refuelling.
At the airport in Prague, PKN ORLEN is an into-plane fuel provider to the largest international air carriers, including: the Czech Airlines, Qatar Airways, UPS, KLM, Air France, and Travel Service.
