Air BP has now completed the purchase of Statoil Fuel & Retail Aviation AS (Statoil Aviation) with effect from 31 December 2014.
The European Commission’s approval for this transaction was conditional on Air BP agreeing to sell Statoil Aviation’s business at Stockholm Arlanda, Gothenburg, Malmö and Copenhagen airports to a third party. We have therefore agreed to continue to operate Statoil Aviation’s business at these airports as an independent and standalone business.
Throughout the sale process, the commercial management of these airports will be run independently of Air BP and they will not be integrated into the Air BP portfolio. Instead, they will remain a competitor of ours and this separate business will operate under the name SFR Aviation (ARN, GOT, MMX, CPH).
Independent of SFR Aviation (ARN, GOT, MMX, CPH), Air BP continues to be present at Stockholm Arlanda, Gothenburg, Malmö and Copenhagen and will continue to compete for business separately from SFR Aviation.
We aim to make this transition as smooth as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your respective Account Manager.
