The EC orders fuel competition to enter Polish airports

The European Commission decided that every airport serving over 2 million passengers annually will have to welcome an alternative jet fuel supplier. So far there was only one supplier of fuel on most of the Polish airports - Petrolot, which is owned by PKN Orlen and LOT Polish Airlines. The EC deemed it as a monopoly and ordered changes. The changes will affect Warsaw, Kraków and Katowice and also Gdańsk in the close future.

"Letting another supplier of jet fuel can cause that more aircraft will be pumping their fuel in Poland due to increase of competitiveness," said Leszek Stokłosa, CEO of Lotos Tank, a company that hopes to benefit from the new regulation.
