Air BP has bolstered its network in Brazil with the addition of Salvador International airport, with immediate effect.

Operations at the airport will be managed by Air BP Petrobahia, a joint venture between Air BP and Brazilian company, Petrobahia. Air BP Petrobahia has invested US$3m in enhancing the fuelling infrastructure and training at the airport and will supply Jet A-1 fuel to both general and commercial aviation customers.

Salvador International is a key entry point for customers visiting Brazil from Europe and the US. It also complements Air BP’s existing location at Recife International, enabling greater choice for customers when travelling within the region. As part of Air BP’s 900-strong network, customers using the airport will be able to use their Air BP Sterling Card to purchase fuel, in addition to ordering and paying for fuel via the RocketRoute MarketPlace app.

Ricardo Paganini, General Manager Air BP Brazil, comments: “As we continue to see optimism in the Brazilian aviation industry, we are excited to be investing in yet another new location for the benefit of our customers. I am sure that Salvador International will prove to be a popular location with both our existing, and new, commercial and general aviation customers looking for a safe and reliable fuel supply.”
