Koltsovo airport needs another filling station, Governor says

20 March 2008 (09:08)

Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Eduard Rossel announced in the course of a monthly meeting on the local construction projects that he decided to solve the problem of jet fuel in Koltsovo airport once and for all.

‘Ours is Russia’s most expensive jet fuel, so Ural Airlines’ aircraft get filled in Moscow now because it’s cheaper,’ the Governor said.

Mr. Rossel believes an additional filling station is needed to create competition, which is expected to help the fuel price go down. The Governor said they might use LUKoil to set up the airport’s second station.
