Mumbai: December 30, 2019: In a quest to unite the Indian skies, IndianOil has commissioned its 119th Aviation Fuel Station at Agatti Island in Lakshadweep. The inaugural refueling was done for an Alliance Air flight operating between Kochi and Agatti. Agatti AFS shall cater to the aviation fuel needs of Indian Navy, Pawan Hans, Coast Guard, Alliance Air and other chartered flights.

Agatti is a scenic island that is just 7.6 km long situated on a coral atoll (called Agatti atoll). In the remote Lakshdweep islands off Kochi, Agatti is the only island with a runway strip and thus the only aerodrome in the vicinity.

Initially, the IndianOil Agatti AFS expects to service approx. 2-3 flights daily. The availability of jet fuel in Agatti, Lakshdweep is expected to boost tourism to the hitherto unexplored region of the country.
