National aviation fuel supplier, Gulf Aviation, has secured a contract to provide fuel to Birmingham Airport, adding to its existing portfolio of airport contracts.

Gulf Aviation, which is national fuel supplier Certas Energy’s aviation brand, has now entered into a partnership to provide the essential supply of Jet A1 fuel to the airport, which is one of the busiest in the UK, servicing more than 13 million passengers every year.

The deal significantly bolsters the existing fuel supply chain to the airport and will also include the refuelling of on site vehicles. A number of airlines, including Emirates, British Airways, KLM, Vueling, Iberia Express, TUI, Qatar Airways and Thomas Cook Airlines fly from Birmingham Airport, with passengers taking domestic flights within the UK and international flights to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, North America and the Caribbean. 

Alex Murphy, Head of Gulf Aviation, which has been supplying the UK aviation market for more than eight years, said: “We’re thrilled to confirm our partnership with Birmingham Airport and this latest contract win further demonstrates the national capabilities we can offer as one of the UK’s leading fuel suppliers.

“The way we’ve grown as a business is by listening to our customers and developing services and solutions that respond to their needs and that help them run their companies more efficiently. It’s something I know Birmingham Airport were impressed with and it played a key part in their decision making process.

“Gulf Aviation will continue to have strong ties to private and business airfields alongside flying clubs, but supplying directly to large commercial airports, is  certainly part of our future growth strategy. We look forward to working with the team at Birmingham Airport and strengthening our relationship over the coming months.”

Bob Graham, Operations Director at Birmingham Airport, said: “We’re excited to welcome Gulf Aviation as a fuel contractor to help the supply chain at Birmingham Airport.

“This new partnership comes at a really exciting time for Birmingham Airport as we continue to expand the number of carriers and destinations we offer and position ourselves as as an attractive airport for carriers looking to expand services into the UK.”
