The government of the Ulyanovsk Region and Gazpromneft-Aero have reached an agreement on the selection of a plot of land at the Ulyanovsk-Vostochny International Airport for the construction of a new Gazpromneft-Aero refueling facility.
The refueling facility will be designed around plans for the development of an air-freight hub in Ulyanovsk as a special airport economic zone. The existing production capacity of Gazpromneft-Aero Ulyanovsk, the company that performs aircraft refueling at the city's airports, were designed to meet the Ulyanovsk airports' current aviation fuel needs.
The Ulyanovsk Region's partnership with Gazpromneft-Aero has been growing productively under an agreement signed at the first International Air Transport Forum in April 2011. Gazpromneft-Aero Ulyanovsk, a subsidiary of Gazpromneft-Aero, began operating in the region in December 2011.
Gazpromneft-Aero is a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft. The company began aircraft refueling and retail aviation fuel sales on January 1, 2008. Gazpromneft-Aero has been a strategic partner of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in aviation fuel supplies since December 2008.
Gazpromneft-Aero is a leading supplier of aviation fuel in the Russian market. The company has its own network of refueling facilities and is a leader in retail jet fuel sales among network operators in the Russian retail market.
