Before US leader Donald Trump completes his ongoing Polish visit and heads on to Germany on Thursday afternoon, his Air Force One will refuel in the Polish capital using jet fuel provided by Poland’s Lotos corporation, a spokesman for the company has said.

The fuel, produced by the company’s Lotos-Air BP Polska subsidiary at a refinery in the northern city of Gdańsk, has undergone a detailed quality inspection and will be closely guarded at the airport by US Secret Service agents, Lotos’ Krzysztof Kopeć told Poland’s PAP news agency.

Earlier, Lotos fuel was used to refuel Boeing C-17 Globemaster planes that had brought to Warsaw cargo including President Trump’s impressive Cadillac One limo, otherwise known as “the Beast”, according to Kopeć.
