What we do

A further 21 airport locations have been added to the Vitol Aviation portfolio in Africa in 2012 as part of Vitol’s purchase of Shell’s downstream business. 2012 entry plans also include Paris CDG and Amsterdam airports.

How we do it

As one of the world’s largest bulk traders of jet fuel, Vitol has always been a major participant in trading markets, with significant supply contracts with all the major export refiners, including in the Middle East, Europe and the Far East. Underpinned by this security of supply, we have system operational controls and fully audited product quality practices which meet and exceed the stringent global specifications and joint industry guidelines for managing and handling jet fuel, coupled with an understanding of the dynamics that influence jet fuel prices and linkage with our trading business. This is supported by an unwavering commitment to becoming a long term significant participant in the wholesale and retail jet markets, a firm yet dynamic global base on which to continue to build this fast growing enterprise.
