For 23 years, since incorporation, Bluesky’s strategic goal is to be one of the most progressive and innovative aviation fuel suppliers in the Asia Pacific region, achieving sustainability in markets, profits and culture. The company strives to offer excellent services for domestic and international airlines as well as a secure supply of China’s aviation fuel.

China’s civil aviation sector is currently at a stage of high growth. The prospects for Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, one of China’s three most important international aviation hubs, is enormously promising. With an annual passenger volume of 73.3785 million in 2019, Baiyun Airport now operates 3 runways and 2 terminals. By 2025, it will have 5 runways and 3 terminals.

As the sole aviation fuel supplier of Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, Bluesky is well positioned for continued growth and innovation, in keeping with the exponential growth of China’s civil aviation market and providing even better service for its aviation customers. It will also enhance its economic performance, environmental standard and social responsibilities, and maximise returns for its shareholders.
