Dubai Airshow 2023: Air bp expands in India

Air bp, one of the sponsors at this year’s airshow, has expanded its joint venture, Air bp-Jio, in India with a new fuel facility at Rajkot International Airport in Hirasar.

Owned and operated by the Airports Authority of India, Rajkot was inaugurated on July 27 and officially began operations in September. It is bp-Jio’s 31st location in India and the fuel provider has already completed 575 fuellings at the airport to date.

Digant Borah, airport director, Rajokot International Airport, said: “Air bp-Jio excelled in making the fuel station ready in a short space of time with all regulatory compliances and approvals. The successful commencement of flight operations at Rajkot International Airport was very much dependent on Air bp-Jio’s service.”
