Aviation Fuels and Lubricants
The aviation industry has continued to be dynamic with ongoing expansion of Kenya Airways and KQ, both regionally and internationally. The local aviation operators have also continued to thrive as more local business people use air travel, and there is expectation of a new generation of budget airlines adding to the sector from Nairobi.
Vivo Energy Kenya stores Jet A1 and Avgas in two aviation depots Wilson Airport in Nairobi (Vivo Energy Depot); and Malindi Airport in Malindi (Vivo Energy Depot). It also offers technical support to MOI Airbase (MOB) in Eastleigh, Nairobi. Dispensing of fuel through the in-plane operation is done at Jomo Kenyatta International airport (JKIA) in Nairobi; Moi International Airport (MIA) in Mombasa; Wilson Airport in Nairobi; and Malindi Airport in Malindi.
Vivo Energy Kenya’s aviation business prides itself on its strong aviation compliance standards, backed by a Technical Service Agreement (TSA) with Shell Aviation relating to operating standards. This operational excellence provides us with a distinct advantage and sends a clear message to customers in what is an increasingly competitive industry.
The business has recorded a number of noteworthy achievements in recent times, successfully handling a contract (signed in April 2012) with Kenya Airways (KQ – Kenya’s national carrier which is responsible for 40% of volumes at JKIA), and receiving special recognition from the airline for our excellent customer service.
