Castle & Cooke Aviation’s FBO at Honolulu International Airport in Hawaii now has the capability to refuel larger airliners and cargo airplanes. The FBO’s new hydrant refueling truck gives the FBO the ability to plug into the airport’s in-ground hydrant pipeline. This allows the U.S. company to deliver fuel into the largest aircraft, including Boeing 747s and Airbus A380s.

Since starting operations at Honolulu in 2008, Castle & Cooke has been fueling all types of business jets, ranging from Cessna Citations and Gulfstreams to Boeing Business Jets. Other services offered by the FBO include customs clearance at the private terminal, hangar space and ground handling. Castle & Cooke (Booth H301) also has FBOs in Van Nuys, California (near Los Angeles), and Everett, Washington (north of Seattle).
