Skytanking: Successful Market Entry in Spain
Last year, Skytanking acquired the necessary licenses for aircraft refuelling in Spain, the third largest aviation market in Europe, as part of a nationwide tender. Barcelona is the first location where Skytanking operates, Valencia, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca will follow shortly.
„Spain’s air traffic greatly benefits from tourism. For years, the mainland and the islands have been among the most popular destinations in Europe. We are pleased that we will soon be operating at four airports. Further locations are to follow,“ says Gerard Reumer, Managing Director Skytanking.
Skytanking is a subsidiary of Marquard & Bahls, a Hamburg-based family-owned company that operates in the fields of energy supply, trading and logistics. Skytanking provides a full range of aviation fuelling services including building, owning and operating aviation fuel storage and hydrant facilities, and providing into-plane services to airlines, airports and oil companies. Skytanking handles 23 million cbm of aviation fuel per year, refuelling two million aircraft at 77 airports in 14 countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.
