WOKING, England, April 7, 2011 - Q8Aviation has added Brussels South Charleroi Airport in Belgium to its
network of regional airports and has won its first contract, with the
airport's leading operator, Ryanair. From 1st April, Q8Aviation will supply
20 per cent of Ryanair's fuel requirements, equating to 20 million litres of
aviation fuel per annum.
Toby Simmons, Sales & Marketing Manager at Q8Aviation's headquarters in
the UK, comments: "We secured approval to start operations at Charleroi
Airport in February and are delighted to win this important contract within
such a short timescale. Our entry into Charleroi strengthens our presence in
Belgium, where we already serve Brussels and Liege airports, and is part of
our strategy to maximise the use of our import facilities at Rotterdam, which
have helped to make Q8Aviation the largest jet fuel importer into North West
Located around 46 kilometres south of Brussels, Charleroi Airport is used
predominantly by low cost airlines, with the majority of services operated by
Ryanair. The airport has expanded rapidly since the opening of a new terminal
in 2008 and in 2010 was used by over 5 million passengers, a 32 per cent
increase on the previous year.
Q8Aviation benefits from a secure 'well head to wing tip' source of fuel
into Europe, importing Kuwaiti jet fuel through its state of the art import
facilities and onwards via pipeline.
With the opening of a Q8 service station and forecourt shop at Charleroi
Airport, Q8 can claim to meet a wide range of passenger needs, from petrol
for their cars and snacks, through to jet fuel for their flight!
Charleroi is the latest in a growing list of airports added to
Q8Aviation's network over the past year, including Leeds Bradford,
Cologne-Bonn, Frankfurt-Hahn, Liege and, most recently, Vienna.
