Gazpromneft-Aero has started providing ‘wing-tip’ refueling services for airlines at Russia’s new Gagarin International Airport in Saratov.

The company’s production facilities allow for the regular refueling of fights in accordance with IATA international standards and have received all the required licenses and permits for operation.

The new airport can accommodate narrowbody and widebody aircraft, significantly expanding the capabilities of airlines operating flights to Saratov. The capacity is one million passengers per annum with potential to increase up to 2.5 million passengers.

Among the airlines flying from Saratov are Aeroflot, S7 Airlines, Pegas Fly, Rusline, UTair, flying routes to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Surgut and other cities.

Gazpromneft-Aero CEO, Vladimir Yegorov said: “Gagarin has become the 60th airport in the Gazpromneft-Aero refueling network in Russia and the 280th in the company’s global network.

“We pride ourselves in providing our Russian and international airline clients with the same level of technical support and service at all airports – regardless of their location – which is fully compliant with the domestic and international standards for fuel storage and aircraft refuelling.”
