Shell has been voted the ‘Best Aviation Fuels and Lubricant Brand’ by the readers of aviation magazine, Aerokurier. In its survey, Shell Aviation came out as the top brand in the ‘aviation fuels and lubricants’ category with 45.7% of the votes. One of Germany’s bestselling aviation magazines, Aerokurier conducts the Best Brand Awards via an online poll and voting by postcards among its readers, 75% of whom are pilots.

"We are very honoured by this recognition," said Anne Anderson, vice-president Shell Aviation. "Shell Aviation has offered high quality products and services for generations. We share our customers’ passion for flight and continue to build on our strong legacy. Our number one aim is to continuously enhance our contribution to this industry whether through product innovation or our collaborations for increased safety and efficiency.

"The brand preference for our fuels and AeroShell lubricants results from decades of expertise and innovation. This award shows that our efforts resonate with aviation enthusiasts and we are very proud of this vote of confidence in Shell Aviation," she added.

The awards were presented in eight categories, including best airplane, helicopter and jet brands. The selection criterion is based on the overall perception of the companies and how highly the readers rate each brand. This year’s winners received their awards at a ceremony at the AERO Air Show in Friedrichshafen, Germany on 15 April. Anns Kahlon, EMEA regional sales manager for lubricants, accepted the award on behalf of Shell Aviation.
