Air BP, the international aviation fuel products and services supplier, has today announced the signing of a 50/50 aviation fuel joint venture in Peru with PBF, the Peruvian energy company. The agreement was signed by David Windle, Chief Operating Officer, Air BP, and Alberto Pinto Rocha, Chief Executive Officer, PBF, in the Peruvian capital Lima.

Operating under the name of Air BP PBF, the joint venture, which will initially supply aviation fuel at Lima’s Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM/SPJC), plans to further expand its operations to other locations in the country.

Together we anticipate a long and rewarding relationship which will better serve our customers."
