Fargo Jet Center officials made the long journey to Dubai to highlight the FBO’s convenience as a point-of-entry for business jets flying to the U.S. from Europe and the Middle East.
A first-time MEBA exhibitor, Fargo Jet can be found at the Avfuel exhibit in the U.S. Pavilion (Stand 580) promoting its location in North Dakota as an ideal fuel stop and U.S. Customs clearance location for westbound traffic headed to the southwestern U.S. In addition to selling Avfuel-branded fuel, Fargo Jet provides aircraft maintenance and avionics repairs, charter and management services, aircraft sales and acquisitions and flight training. Fargo Jet is also approved and inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for handling of international trash, according to vice president of marketing Darren Hall.
The U.S. Customs office and air traffic control tower at Fargo’s Hector International Airport are open 24/7. The airport offers a 9,000-foot runway and plenty of commercial airline flights for when crew swaps are necessary.
“There is a tremendous amount of opportunity for business aviation in the Middle East,” said Hall. “Exhibiting at MEBA provides us a connection to that opportunity. We’re hopeful MEBA will open doors to new opportunities for business development.”
