Luxaviation Group, one of the largest private aircraft operators worldwide headquartered in Luxembourg, has announced the signature of a strategic collaboration with Shell Aviation, a leading global supplier of aviation fuels and lubricants.

Beyond their existing respective fixed-based operator (FBO) and fuel supply networks, Luxaviation and Shell will join forces for an expansion plan, co-investing in adding new FBO locations.

Patrick Hansen, CEO of Luxaviation Group, commented: “For more than a decade, Luxaviation group has implemented multiple initiatives to reduce the impact our business activities have on the environment, creating added value for our customers, employees and investors. The strategic alliance with Shell Aviation is the mere start of a game changing cooperation of two players in the industry nurturing a common ambition for a future sustainable aviation industry. Our teams are looking forward to summon our respective strengths for the benefit of our customers". 

“By bringing together Luxaviation’s extensive FBO network with our global expertise in fuel supply and airport operations, we are confident this agreement will provide genuine value to our customers”, added Anna Mascolo, President of Shell Aviation. “As well as providing a secure supply of fuel, we’re looking forward to working closely with the Luxaviation team as they look to expand and enhance the high levels of service that customers have come to expect from their FBO locations".

This strategic collaboration aims at laying the foundations for a long-term cooperation of two leading players of the aviation industry with the ambition to progress and transform traditional business into world-wide dynamically developing operations and product portfolios.
