World Fuel Services (WFS) has been selected as the sole aviation fuels provider at Paris-area Aeroport Reims en Champagne (LFQA). The contract, the fuel company’s second with operator Edeis Group, follows an earlier announced deal at Nimes Airport and will expand its footprint in France.

“Our new relationship with LFQA is the result of a competitive tender with the airport looking for a fuel supplier that is reliable and flexible, first and foremost,” said Mark Amor, vice president of the Miami-based company. “We can support LFQA’s diverse customer base while at the same time helping them to achieve their commercial targets.”

As a result of its purchase of ExxonMobil’s general aviation business earlier this year, WFS expanded its fueling network in France to include Paris Le Bourget, Nice, and Bordeaux.

“Recent traffic figures show that the French business aviation market is experiencing a period of strong growth, making this an exciting time for us to be in the market,” noted Amor. “We are committed to supporting the aviation industry in France as a partner able to meet modern aviation business challenges.”
