The homegrown and fastest-growing leading independent oil company, Phoenix Petroleum, recently sealed a supply bid with the country’s flag carrier, Philippine Airlines.
Phoenix Petroleum now supplies PAL its Jet A-1 requirements at the Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao City.
“We are glad to be fueling the flights of one of Asia’s premier airlines, starting with its operations in Davao, which is where Phoenix Petroleum originated. Not only does this milestone speak volumes of the high quality of our fuel, but also allows us the opportunity to serve more Filipinos, becoming part of their journeys even off-ground,” Phoenix Petroleum Chief Operating Officer Henry Albert F. Fadullon said.
PAL is one of the oil company’s aviation clients who will benefit from its recently established airside facility in Davao airport. The facility houses a storage tank with a capacity of 160,000 liters of Jet A-1 fuel, a laboratory testing room for supply quality control, a staging area for trucks and aviation refuellers and an office space.
Earlier this year, PNX Petroleum Singapore, the Singapore-based trading and supply business of Phoenix Petroleum Group was recognized as one of the island nation’s fastest growing companies as the SME100 Awards. The oil company is the sole winner from the country who attended the said awarding ceremony.
Philippine Airlines, on the other hand, has been awarded with the ‘Four Star Major Airline 2020’ rating by US-based Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX).
The airline also set to open new domestic routes by mid-December and early January in response to renewed calls for increase connectivity in Visayas and Mindanao Regions.
New flights will be open starting January 3, 2020 from Davao City to Iloilo on a daily basis 7x a week. Additional frequencies were also added starting January 1 for Davao-Siargao-Davao and Davao-Panglao-Davao flights 7x a week daily.
