“Shell Aviation continues to focus its growth strategy on select locations. Shell & MOH Aviation has been successfully growing the business in Greece in the last seven years and we are pleased to see its expansion into Bulgaria. Having the right structure at the right locations is key in serving our customers as efficiently as possible. We believe this is the case at Sofia Airport and look forward to offering the high Shell product, service and safety standards at this location” Adam Harrison, General Manager Shell Aviation, Europe and South Africa, said.

"We are happy that Shell is expanding its business presence in Bulgaria by adding aviation fuel supply to our business portfolio in the country. We believe that with the launch of these activities at Sofia Airport we will contribute to the improvement of the offer for aviation fuel in Bulgaria and for the further development of the biggest airport in the country," added Kamelia Slaveykova, Country Chair of Shell Bulgaria.

Sofia Airport is one of the key south-eastern centres in Europe, used by leading traditional airlines and large low-cost carriers.

I believe that our cooperation will be built on a good relationship and will contribute to enhancing the quality of aviation fuel services to our partners – the airlines."
