Shell Aviation has launched its European programme – the Aviation Centre of Excellence (ACE) – designed to meet customer (fixed-base operators (FBOs) and small and medium size airports) needs covering safe and effective operations, marketing support for growth, supply security, modern up-to-date equipment or simply a partner with which it is easy to do business.
The marketing support element – which is likely to be valuable to regional airports and their airline customers – includes joint promotional and marketing materials, while the supply security portfolio provides customers with access to a global supply and trading network, product quality assurance procedures and experts in fuels and logistics.
Safety operations management gives access to Shell Airport operating manual, renowned effective Shell HSSE programmes, flexible operations training, dedicated technical support and inspection and assessment.
Shell Aviation has already successfully implemented the ACE programme at key European locations such as Gothenburg City Airport in Sweden, Gazipaca in Turkey, Zurich in Switzerland and Roskilde in Denmark, to name a few.
Ioannis Topsakalidis, Europe manager, Shell Aviation, added, “We are proud to announce this new exciting proposition that brings a great deal of benefits to FBOs and airports globally. At Shell Aviation, we are not just a fuels and lubricants supplier but a partner that is easy to do business with and offers a package of support. It is our job to ensure our customers have the latest tools and help available to improve their operations and achieve excellence in what they do.”
