These responsibilities include managing the consortium’s into-plane fuelling activities carried out by 70 employees based at the airport. The consortium is comprised of BP, Chevron, Shell, Engen, Sasol and Total.
AirBP will hold the managing participant and operator position for 5 years with the option to extend this period for a further 3 years.
AirBP has been a member of the consortium since its formation over three decades ago and will be bringing its global technical expertise and safety standards to the continent’s busiest airport, which will benefit customers.
Morena Sithole, AirBP’s Performance Unit Leader in Africa elaborates, “I am very pleased with our appointment, as globally AirBP is known to set benchmarks in the aviation fuels industry.
“The first six months of the operation under our leadership will be focussed largely on establishing the BP way of doing things, particularly on increasing safety awareness on the ramp and improving operating standards for the benefit of the aviation industry and customers in particular. We also look forward to working closely with the consortium members and ACSA to realise the airport’s full potential”, says Sithole.
BP is confident that this new responsibility will improve its ability to offer a higher level of service to airlines, providing top quality products and exceptional industry expertise, thus contributing to its strategic growth objectives, not just globally, but specifically in Southern Africa.
