Sometimes simple is better. That’s the philosophy Connecticut-based aviation services provider Key Air heeded when it designed its FBO at Minnesota’s Anoka County-Blaine Airport (ANE), near Minneapolis. In deference to local aesthetics the company avoided the use of shiny chrome and marble, relying instead on wood, stone and brick.

FBO, charter/management and maintenance company Key Air has joined the Avfuel dealer network. Key Air operates three FBOs, in Waterbury-Oxford, Conn., St. Lucie County International Airport in Fort Pierce, Fla., and Anoka County-Blaine Airport in Minneapolis. Through March, Key Air’s three facilities are offering triple Avtrip points on all fuel purchases.
Key Air’s Twin Cities (Minneapolis) and Treasure Coast (Fort Pierce, Fla.) FBOs are now offering jet-A at significantly lower prices, but accompanied by a handling fee set by the type of aircraft. Prices as of January 12 showed Key Air charging $2.23 per gallon for jet-A at St. Lucie County International Airport in Fort Pierce and $2.31 at Anoka County-Blaine Airport in Minneapolis.
FBO and charter/management company Key Air is building a new FBO at Anoka County-Blaine Airport in Minneapolis. Key Air sister company Keystone Aviation Services operates a large FBO at Waterbury-Oxford Airport in Connecticut, and the Minnesota FBO will also host Key Air charter/management, aircraft sales and maintenance operations.
