SOCAR Aviation is also growing together with Istanbul Airport and the Turkish aviation sector and we are proud that among the foreign and local companies we have been chosen to supply such a significant volume of jet fuel.” Erdo?an reminded that SOCAR’s other subsidiary STAR Refinery will produce 1.6 million tons of jet fuel after reaching full production. He said: “From the outset SOCAR Aviation has signed a number of important deals and has become a jet fuel supplier to some large airports. We will continue this to become stronger with STAR Refinery and extend operations within the integrated value chain of SOCAR Türkiye”.
