Avfuel has added three new branded FBOs to its international portfolio: Rizon Jet, Air Service Basel and Million Air Calgary. Rizon Jet is located at London Biggin Hill Airport. The terminal features lounges and business suites equipped with the latest technology, as well as aircrew facilities and aircraft handling, maintenance and catering. “Rizon Jet’s extremely desirable location combined with an acute attention to detail results in an unparalleled experience for guests,” said Marci Ammerman, vice president of marketing for the Michigan-based fuel provider. “Avfuel is pleased to partner with Rizon Jet to further enhance offerings.”

Air Service Basel at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse Airport (on the tri-border of Switzerland, France and Germany) has signed on as the latest Avfuel-branded European distributor and will provide customers with contract fuel and Avtrip rewards points. “Air Service Basel is dedicated to sustained growth by providing innovative, cost-efficient and flexible professional services to our growing customer base,” said Air Service Basel CEO Claudio Lasagni. “Partnering with Avfuel ensures that the demands of this dynamic and shifting market will be taken into account.” In operation since 1967, the FBO has hangars that can accommodate aircraft as large as a 737-based Boeing Business Jet.

In Canada, the recently opened Million Air Calgary has signed on as an Avfuel dealer. Currently the fastest-growing city in North America, Calgary is home to the Canadian headquarters for major players in the oil and gas industry. The facilities consist of a 7,500-sq-ft FBO building and two 40,000-sq-ft hangars capable of accommodating virtually any aircraft. Amenities include a hospitality bar, theater room, snooze rooms, flight planning, luxury crew cars and concierge services. Aircraft maintenance is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
