Shell Aviation provides fuel every day for about 7,000 aircraft at more than 800 airports in about 40 countries. Customers range from private pilots to the largest global airlines and airports. Shell Aviation has been named Best Aviation Fuel Provider in the Emerging Markets Aviation Awards for the last three years, recognising the business’s safe and reliable supply of products and services to customers in emerging markets.
