By adding Düsseldorf and Cologne, Skytanking will now have operations in the two major cities on the Rhine, and will offer aviation fuelling services at six of Germany’s eight largest airports. "We are delighted that we will be expanding our network in Germany to two key locations and by more than 150 highly qualified employees," says Christoph Lindke, Managing Director of Skytanking in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH). "Our existing site in Frankfurt will also benefit from this strengthened market presence."
Service Agreements have been concluded with Shell Deutschland, Total Deutschland and Tramp Oil Germany for the time following the transaction. In addition to into-plane fuelling services in Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Cologne, Skytanking will also take over the operation of the airport tank terminal in Düsseldorf.
The final closing of the transaction is expected in the coming months, and is subject to approval by the relevant antitrust authorities.
