FBOs Join New Odyssey Aviation Partnership

Seven FBOs have left the Million Air franchise system and switched to a new brand name, Odyssey Aviation, having joined in a marketing partnership with the Odyssey Aviation Bahamas FBO at Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau. Odyssey Bahamas also used to be a Million Air franchisee. The seven former Million Air FBOs are owned by Ken Allison, who joined the Million Air franchise system in 1992 with his first FBO at Louisiana’s New Orleans Lakefront Airport. Allison’s other newly branded Odyssey FBOs are in Asheville, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Chicago; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; and Lafayette, La. Under the partnership, Allison and Odyssey Bahamas president Steven Kelly will work together to provide seamless service to customers who fly to the eight Odyssey FBOs. Although earlier this year Allison and Million Air Interlink filed lawsuits against each other, those have been settled, Allison said, “and there are no hard feelings between Million Air and ourselves. It was time for a fresh start. We wanted to have the freedom to do the things we thought were important.”
