Geneva, Switzerland – 14 March 2019 – Puma Aviation, part of Puma Energy, the global integrated midstream and downstream energy company, has announced its debut into the Panama aviation fuel market with fueling services at Tocumen International Airport. The entry brings competition to the sector, with several European and American airline carriers signing contracts with Puma Aviation.
Having undergone a significant renovation in 2006, Tocumen International Airport is the largest airport in Panama, with passenger numbers growing year on year. Puma Aviation will provide reliable supply logistics for airline customers at the airport, supporting the passenger traffic growth. “Tocumen International Airport is a key regional hub for aviation in the Americas and Caribbean, and we’re delighted that we have been able to bring our expertise into Panama,” said Seamus Kilgallon, Global Head of Aviation at Puma Energy. “We have significantly increased supply security to this major airport with jet fuel supply from sea storage on the Pacific Coast.
