Shell Aviation has entered into a long-term agreement with Air Europa to become the airline’s preferred supplier of aviation lubricants, providing AeroShell engine oils, greases, and fluids for the airline’s Boeing 737 and 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
The airline, which is one of the largest 787 operators in Europe, will benefit from AeroShell Ascender and AeroShell Turbine Oil (ASTO) 560 across their fleet.
Both of these oils can help reduce the chance of oil coke build-up while also decreasing the likelihood of degradation to the engine seals.
Vincent Begon, General Manager Aviation Lubricants, Shell Aviation, said: “This agreement marks an important moment for Shell Aviation as we move further into the turbine engine oil market.
“This deal will showcase the benefits of our high quality products and our extensive global network.”
Pedro Macias Dominguez, Chief Technical Officer (CTO), Air Europa said: “Our agreement with Shell is testament to the value we believe they will deliver – supporting both the performance of our fleet and our sustainability ambitions.
“The combination of a comprehensive portfolio of lubricant solutions backed by a lifecycle approach to sustainability, allows us to unlock operational efficiencies while decarbonising our operations.”
