GoAir Inks Pact With Emirates National Oil Company For Jet Fuel
GoAir said today it has inked a pact with Dubai-based Emirates National Oil Company for the supply of jet fuel to the airline.
The budget carrier currently operates to eight international destinations and half of them are in the Gulf region.
A wholly-owned entity of the Dubai government, ENOC at present covers more than 200 airports across 25 countries, supplying more than three million U.S. gallons of jet fuel to carriers in the United Arab Emirates and internationally, with more than 300 fuellings each day, according to a statement.
“GoAir is happy to partner with ENOC and Im confident that this partnership will provide the airline with a larger footprint in the MENA (Middle-East and North Africa) region by virtue of ENOC being the largest supplier,” Harjinder Singh Bhasin, vice president for airports, GoAir, was quoted as saying in the statement.
The pact was signed by Farid Al Bastaki, director of ENOC Aviation, and Bhasin at the airline’s headquarters in the city, the statement said.
“The partnership will enable ENOC to help GoAir operations in Dubai,” Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group chief executive officer of ENOC, was quoted as saying in the statement.
He said ENOC has been fuelling the aviation industry’s growth locally in the UAE since 1995 and has always had a close association with Dubai airports.
