  • Since last August, CLH Panamá has carried out operations, maintenance and into-plane fuelling services as usual at Tocumen International Airport
  • The company also operates at Panamá Pacífico and Río Hato-Scarlett Martinez airports and will shortly begin operations at Enrique Jiménez de Colón and Enrique Malek airports

CLH Panamá has reached an agreement with INADEH (The National Institute of Professional Training for Human Development) to collaborate and provide specialised training for all of the company’s employees.

INADEH, a Panamanian governmental organisation, provides professional and vocational training and training in business management and promotes a culture of learning for both life and work. This training can be specialised and adapted to the needs of the company and, in the same way, the company offers its collaboration to provide training to the organisation’s instructors.

Since last August, CLH Panamá has carried out operations, maintenance and into-plane fuelling services as usual at Tocumen International Airport, which is located in the Panamanian capital and considered one of the most important airports on the continent, as well as at Panamá Pacífico and Río Hato-Scarlett Martinez airports. Furthermore, operations are expected to begin at Enrique Jiménez de Colón airport in October and shortly at Enrique Malek airport.

In order to meet the highest operational standards, CLH Panamá has refurbished all of its equipment, hired close to 100 people and has incorporated 46 new supply vehicles, from aircraft refuellers and dispenser vehicles to hydrant carts, manufactured specifically for this project.

At the end of last year, the CLH Aviation affiliate won the government of Panama’s call for tenders to supply these five airports. The decision was previously ratified by AITSA’s board of directors and certified by the Comptroller General of the Republic.

According to this agreement, CLH Panamá will take on the management of the fuelling facilities at the five airports, including the into-plane fuelling service, as a single operator under the concession system for ten years. It will also build a new service station at Tocumen airport to enhance its efficiency.

CLH Aviation is the Strategic Partner of IATA and is a member of the Joint Inspection Group (JIG), where it actively participates in the Technical Forum and the Operations Committee, which entails applying the best international practices in both the operation and management of security, occupational health and environmental management.

Likewise, CLH Aviation participates in various committees and sub-committees of the Energy Institute and is an Affiliate Member of ALTA (Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association).
