Touching Bases: City of Sugar Land rebrands FBO

Sugar Land Regional Airport near Houston has renamed its FBO Global Select. “A new name will allow us to market the FBO independently from the city’s airport,” explained Phillip Savko, director of aviation for the airport. “Typically, FBOs that are run by municipalities have an unfavorable reputation. Global Select’s new facility and top-notch amenities set it apart. This new campaign will help us spread awareness through the industry.” The FBO, under its former name of Sugar Land Regional Airport, took the top spot in the AIN FBO survey for the last two years.

Global Select offers aircraft ground services, half a million square feet of ramp for aircraft parking, onsite U.S. customs services, catering, Shell-branded fuel, conference rooms, an executive lounge, a flight-planning office, wireless Internet, onsite rental cars, and hangar and office space.
