PTT Philippines to supply Cebu Pacific’s jet fuel for 2017

PTT Philippines Corp. has renewed its deal to supply the bulk of Cebu Pacific airline’s fuel requirements this year.

The local unit of the Thailand petroleum company will supply 1, 680,000 US barrel (267 million liters) of aviation fuel to Cebu Pacific for 2017.

“We are always grateful to have partnered with Cebu Air. Our partnership has been growing stronger that is anchored on trust, loyalty, and commitment to providing the best and quality products and services that we could afford them,” PTT Philippines president and CEO Sukanya Seriyothin said.

Seriyothin and Cebu Pacific president and CEO Lance Gokongwei recently signed the fuel supply contract for 2017.

PTT Philippines has been supplying Cebu Pac’s jet fuel for over 10 years, and currently accounts for most of the airline’s total jet fuel requirements, particularly flights at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, the Diosdado Macapagal Airport in Clark, and its Visayas routes.

The local unit recently hiked its five-year investment plan to P5 billion for the expansion of its retail network to 300 and the Amazon Café brand from 2017 to 2021.

The Thailand-based oil firm has been in the country for 20 years and is into retail with over 100 service stations across Luzon and Cebu. Its wholesale business also serves the maritime industry.
