The import and supply of jet fuel to Yangon International Airport will be done in partnership with foreign companies, according to Myanmar Petroleum Products Enterprise (MPPE).
MPPE, under the Ministry of Energy, announced a tender for partnership in the jet fuel franchise in June 2013.
Although, more than 20 local and foreign companies have applied, MPPE decided to join hands only with foreign companies which have experience in the international oil business.
There are 11 airports in Myanmar selling aviation fuel but still supply cannot meet the demand, especially with rocketing tourist arrivals.
The Pioneer Aerodrome Company, which built the Nay Pyi Taw Airport, has applied to be a fuel provider in that airport, accordingly Myint Tin, director of MPPE.
