Finejet opens fuel depot at Bor airstrip
A Kenyan aviation company on Tuesday opened a new fuel depot inside the compound of the Bor airstrip in South Sudan’s Jonglei state.
Speaking to reporters after the launch of the aviation fuel supply service by Finejet Company, Director of Bor Airport, Kuot John Akech expressed his happiness about the service offered by the company.
“It is a great achievement and I want the community around the airport to cooperate,” he said.
Akech said the new fuel depot would increase revenues through refueling and landing charges. According to the airstrip’s director, the project took seven months to complete.
The official pointed out that the fuel depot will refuel aircrafts at the Bor airstrip, adding the new company adds to existing services provided by companies like Tria-stars and Dalbet.
Meanwhile, the state minister of physical infrastructure, Abel Manyok applauded Finejet Company for offering the service. The official asked the company to open up feeder roads and give low profile jobs to communities around the facility as a benefit.
Meanwhile, Operation Manager of Finejet Company, Mohamed Ghandi promised to deliver quality services at the Bor airstrip during their stay.
