This new facility will manage «wing-tip» refuelling of domestic and international flights from Kyrgyzstan’s second most important passenger airport. Aviation fuel will be supplied from Gazprom Neft’s Omsk Refinery.
Osh International Airport is the most important transport hub connecting Kyrgyzstan’s southern regions with the country’s capital, Bishkek.
International flights to more than 30 destinations - including Moscow, Delhi, and Istanbul - also operate from the airport, in addition to domestic flights.
Flights are operated by carriers including Avia Traffic, Air Manas, Tez Jet, Jazeera Airways, Aeroflot, S7 Group, Nordwind, Ural Airlines and others.
Vladimir Egorov, Director General of Gazpromneft-Aero, said:
- Expanding our own retail network - to more than 100 refuelling complexes - is one of the key areas in Gazpromneft-Aero’s strategic development to 2030
- This new refuelling facility in Osh is the company’s 66th refuelling complex, and its 2nd in Kyrgyzstan - the company having started refuelling aircraft at Manas International Airport (the republic’s central airport) in 2011
- Acquiring this refuelling complex marks an important investment in developing our aviation refuelling network
The company will also deploy the company’s standard technical policy governing fuel quality control and industrial and environmental safety.
