BGS to provide fuel for Turkish Airlines and LOT in Ukraine


BGS, an international provider of ground handling and aircraft fueling services, has won a tender to supply fuel to the Ukrainian airports for Turkish Airlines and LOT Polish Airlines for 2017.

Following the successful partnership in 2016, BGS has bypassed competition and extended contract for service with the Turkish national air carrier in Lviv airport. Meanwhile, LOT Polish Airlines has become a new partner in the airport of Odessa. Throughout 2017, BGS plans to supply at least 2000 tons of aircraft fuel to these partners in Ukraine.

Altogether, BGS services 15 air carriers in four Ukrainian airports: Kiev (Zhuliany and Boryspil), Odessa and Lviv. During 2016, these airports were supplied the overall amount of almost 30 000 tons of aircraft fuel. In the same year, the entire BGS-served airport network, comprised of Lithuania, Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Ukraine, was supplied with almost a quarter millions of tons of aircraft fuel, or 80% more compared to the previous year. In 2017, the company plans to increase the quantity supplied to as much as 350 thousand tons of aviation fuel.
