Aviation Needs Effective Competition in Jet Fuel Supply

November 7, 2018  |  Skytanking’s Regional Director Asia, Heng Jeong Tan, will discuss what the industry can do to create a level playing field in all markets at the IATA Aviation Fuel Forum in Singapore November 13-15. 

Sometimes there is little or no competitive alternative along the jet fuel supply chain in a country or at a specific location: a single entity owns the entire supply infrastructure or has the control over the supply of jet fuel. This can result in significantly higher prices or even lack of availability, which can hinder growth in aviation. 

In Mexico, the Energy Reform has opened the jet fuel supply for competition. A panel at the IATA Aviation Fuel Forum will discuss the lessons learned in Mexico and consider what the industry can do to support positive changes in other places with ineffective jet fuel supply competition.
