Turbosine in Mexico, on track towards opening

After 39 years with Airports and Auxiliary Services (ASA) managing the jet fuel supply, storage and transport operations through its 60 service stations, this long standing exclusivity might come to and end this month, with the market opening. Before this opening, there were only two players in the market, ASA and Pemex, so the marketing, storage and into plane services were sold to the airlines as a single service; but this is now going to change. Despite the tariffs being released at the end of May, Luis Felipe de Oliveira, Executive Director of the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) said it might take up to six months for providers other than ASA to start selling turbosine, which means that the airlines purchasing jet fuel from new players, might be a reality by the end of the second half of the year.
