FBO operator Saker Aviation Services filed a lawsuit against its landlords at Wilkes-Barre Scranton (Pa.) International Airport, claiming contract violation when the airport board failed to renew its lease and awarded a 15-year lease on the property to Aviation Technologies. According to Saker, the airport awarded the contract to Aviation Technologies without Saker’s ever being informed of the specifics of the competing offer or being given the opportunity to match it, which it says is required under the contract terms.
