Air bp adds to its Indian operation

The aviation business of the new joint venture of Reliance Industries and bp has now taken over refuelling operations at 30 airports across India.

These locations had previously been operated by Reliance Industries alone.

Reliance and bp announced the start of their new Indian fuels and mobility joint venture, Reliance BP Mobility, which operates under the Jio-bp brand, in July 2020. Bp and Reliance expect the venture to grow rapidly to help meet India’s fast-growing demands for energy and mobility, including for aviation fuel.

Air bp has added 11 new locations in India to its international network as part of the joint venture between parent company bp and Reliance Industries, and is working to add the remaining 19. Effective immediately, these 11 locations will serve Air bp’s commercial aviation, general aviation and military customers flying internationally.

Martin Thomsen, CEO, Air bp, commented: “India is a really exciting aviation market for Air bp, and the addition of these locations to our network offers our customers even greater choice when selecting a quality aviation fuel provider. We see the potential for tremendous growth in India over the coming years, and we look forward to working closely with this joint venture and welcoming our customers to their growing network.”

Harish C Mehta, CEO, Reliance BP Mobility Limited added: “With the advent of this joint venture, customers can now experience world-class service combined with the technology-enabled, secure and seamless aviation fuel supplies that bp and Reliance are known for. We are excited about the potential of this partnership for the Indian market and are looking forward to expanding our network footprint, together and becoming an integral part of the Indian aviation growth story.”
