Avfuel Signs New Dealers

 - October 5, 2012, 1:35 AM

Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Avfuel has added a trio of FBOs to its lineup of more than 600 branded dealers. Bellingham Aviation Services at Bellingham International Airport, located near the Canadian border, between Vancouver, B.C., and Seattle, serves as a gateway to the Pacific Northwest, as well as a tech stop for Alaskan-bound fliers. The facility offers transient hangar space, GPUs, lav service, de-icing and oxygen. The FBO’s maintenance division provides services such as avionics, general maintenance, inspections and major repairs for both piston- and turbine-powered aircraft.

Tupelo Aviation Unlimited, the airport-owned FBO at Tupelo Regional Airport in Mississippi, is in the midst of a complete renovation to outfit the building with new services and amenities. Once the renovation is complete–scheduled for year-end–the facilities will include a large conference room, kitchenette, crew lounge, passenger lounge, snooze rooms, modern flight planning room, crew cars, showers and free Wi-Fi. The FBO’s ramp can accommodate aircraft up to a Boeing 757.

Exec 1, the sole FBO on the field at Ankeny Regional Airport near Des Moines, Iowa, specializes in quick turns and provides fueling and line services with on-site maintenance available for piston, turboprop and jet aircraft. Courtesy cars, rental car assistance, catering, de-icing, WSI weather and flight planning facilities are among the services offered.

Customers at all three FBOs will now have access to Avfuel’s contract fueling and Avtrip rewards program.
