Air BP extends its footprint in Africa

Air BP has collaborated with Vivo Energy to grow its network in Africa adding six new locations.

These are Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International airport, Abidjan-Felix-Houphouet-Boigny International airport, Nelson Mandela International, Sal International, Agadir-Al Massira airport and Marrakesh–Menera airport.

With immediate effect, Air BP general and commercial aviation customers can refuel at the new locations in the Ivory Coast, Morocco, Cape Verde and Mauritius.

Anthony Leon, General Manager, Air BP Southern Africa, commented: "With Africa set to be one of the fastest growing aviation regions over the next 20 years, there is enormous potential for both business and commercial aviation. We are delighted to be collaborating with Vivo Energy and will continue to invest in Africa, as the industry develops, to grow our operations and better serve our customers."

This collaboration builds on a technical services agreement that Air BP signed with Vivo Energy in 2015 to provide training services across Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Morocco, Kenya, Uganda and Mauritius. Air BP’s technical services team have already completed stringent operational audits at each of the new locations to ensure they are operating to the same standards of safety and service as the rest of Air BP’s global network.
