World Fuel Services has announced that six new FBOs have joined the expanding Air Elite Network, with nine having been accredited in 2015. The latest members bring Air Elite-accredited locations to 43 around the globe, since the launch of the program by World Fuel Services in late 2011. Member FBOs are required to meet high standards of airport, facility and customer services, which are regularly audited to ensure that they are being maintained.
New additions to the network include Fireblade Aviation’s FBO at O.R. Tambo International Airport (Johannesburg) in South Africa, Caribbean Support & Flight Services at Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport at Barranquilla in Colombia, and Fort Collins-Loveland jetCenter in northern Colorado. Jet Aviation’s new FBO at Nassau in the Bahamas joined the network at the start of the year, bringing Jet Aviation’s contribution to the Air Elite roster to 11. The network has also added its first member in Mexico, in the shape of the privately owned Cabo San Lucas International Airport FBO.
The sixth new Air Elite FBO is to begin operations next month, when World-Way Aviation opens its state-of-the-art new facility at Sorocaba, near São Paulo in Brazil.
