Since May, 2020, an alternative refueling complex of Aerofuels Group of Companies has been operating in the airport of Yakutsk. Aerofuels company, an operator of the new TZK, from the very beginning of activities in the Republic of Sakha considered creation of the sound competitive environment in the airport to be one of their priorities. Due to putting into operation of a new operator in the airport of Yakutsk, during last three months the jet fuel and complex of services cost for fuel delivery to the plane wing decreased significantly, about by 26%, and consequently, air lines expenses in aircrafts refueling reduced. Thus, if before Aerofuels activities in the airport the jet fuel cost made 83-86 thousand rubles/ton, in August, 2020, the prices were fixed at a level of 63-65 thousand rubles/ton, including VAT.
Yu.A.Miniaylo, Aerofuels General Director, in his letter to the Republic of Sakha Administration, noted that “due to jet fuel price reduction, the airport of Yakutsk got more attractive, and that will make it possible in the future to attract additional flights of the Russian and international air carriers to the region, which will support development of the inter-regional and international links of the region”.
