Date Posted: 07 - 03 - 2017

At the invitation of President Tran Dai Quang, Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko have arrived in Hanoi, commencing their first state visit to Vietnam from February 28 to March 5.

As the leading aviation fuel supplier, with more than 20 years experience in the field, Skypec was chosen as the supplier for the Flight of Japanese Emperor and Empress on their state visit.

Skypec considered supplying the fuel for this VVIP flight as a priotised political assignment. The preparation for this flight was hence carried out meticulously by Skypec’s professional staff under the International standards, in terms of fuel quality, fuel storage, ISO/IEC- 17025 laboratories. One special request from the Japanese team was to isolate 02 Garsite refuellers, each with a capacity of 10,000 USG, to be used specifically for the VVIP flight, which was a B747- 400. Skypec Business network, which stretches all over the country allowed timely reinforcement if needed, and Skypec had immediately sent such refuellers from Dang Nang to Phu Bai airport in Thua Thien- Hue Province. The Preparation Sub-unit of the Japanese Government had carefully checked the items under the refuelling process and appreciated Skypec’s preparations.
