London, United Kingdom – March 6, 2019: Shell Aviation and DCC Holding Denmark A/S, a subsidiary of DCC plc, have signed an agreement to form a branded marketing and distribution business that will supply aviation fuels at seven airports across Denmark. DCC & Shell Aviation Denmark A/S will be the largest independent supplier of aviation fuel in the country, serving Denmark’s busiest airports by passenger numbers, including Billund, Aalborg and the important Scandinavian hub airport of Copenhagen.
The agreement continues Shell Aviation’s growth trajectory. Shell Aviation already serves customers at airports across Norway, Sweden and Finland and, with its entry into Denmark, Shell Aviation now offers one of the most extensive refuelling networks across the Nordic region.
“This is an important development for us in Northern Europe and one that we are confident will provide genuine value to our customers,” said Adam Harrison, General Manager, Shell Aviation Europe and Africa. “We understand that it’s important for our customers that we are available to them, not just at certain airports, but across entire regions. In addition to supporting aviation customers operating in Denmark, this expansion will enable us to better serve our customers across the Nordic region.”
DCC & Shell Aviation Denmark A/S will be a member of our broader Shell Aviation network. Customers at the seven airports will therefore benefit from fuel supply security backed by Shell’s integrated supply chains and global jet trading network. Customers will also gain access to 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 by leveraging Shell’s aviation experience in the region.
Christian Heise, CEO of DCC Holding Denmark A/S added: “By combining Shell Aviation’s global expertise in airport operations with our local presence and knowledge, we are creating a business that will deliver real benefit to our customers. The airports that we serve across Denmark continue to see strong growth and, with our combined capabilities, we believe that we are well positioned to support them on this journey.”
