This expansion into Italy is the result of an agreement with one of FCO’s into-plane (ITP) providers, Levorato Marcevaggi, and means customers can now refuel with Shell at all 10 of Europe’s busiest airports.

The first carrier to benefit from this expansion in Shell Aviation’s network is Polish charter carrier Enter Air, which commenced flying from FCO on the 29th September. Shell Aviation customers at FCO will benefit from product quality assurance via Shell’s Fuel Quality Assurance System; professional account management providing a single focal point for fuel requirements across Shell’s global network; and access to local expertise by leveraging Shell's aviation experience in the European region.

“We’re looking forward to working with Levorato Marcevaggi to provide both commercial and cargo airlines at FCO with the high standards of safety and efficiency they have come to expect from us across our global refuelling operations”, said Ashleigh McDougall, Head of Shell Aviation, Europe and South Africa. “We understand that it’s important for our customers that we are available to them across entire regions – so we’re proud to now be on hand to support them at Europe’s 10 busiest airports.”

To support the on-time performance of customers, the agreement brings together Levorato Marcevaggi’s on-the-ground emphasis on operational resilience, safety standards and digital refuelling capability with Shell’s global expertise in airport operations. The expansion to FCO builds on Shell Aviation and Levorato Marcevaggi’s existing relationship which already includes airports in Brussels, Belgium and Prague, Czech Republic.

Marco Marsili, Country Chair of Shell Italy, commented: "As Italy’s busiest airport by passenger numbers, FCO is an exciting addition to our extensive European refuelling network.I am very pleased that we are available to Shell Aviation’s customers in Italy again, helping to support their growth as well as the progress of the country’s aviation industry.”
