Skytanking Limited is a 50:50 joint venture between Skytanking Holding GmbH and the Maltese company Attard Services Limited. Skytanking Limited was awarded a licence by Malta International Airport plc to provide ‘Fuel and Oil Groundhandling Services’ in January 2016. Since then the company has been busy negotiating commercial contracts and preparing for the start-up of operations.
The first customer aircraft were successfully fuelled on Saturday morning, including Airbus A321 and A320 aircraft destined for Frankfurt and Budapest. The start of operations in Malta increases the number of countries where Skytanking offers independent aviation fuelling services to airports, airlines and oil companies to 13.
Malta International Airport handles more than five million passengers per year at this popular tourist destination.
