World Fuel Services officially opened its World Fuel/Colt trip support regional office in Toluca, Mexico, yesterday. The office can provide full-service flight planning and trip support to Mexican operators flying internationally and all operators flying into Mexico and the greater Latin America region.

The support team in Toluca has “regional expertise” and is able to provide regulatory and ground support in local languages, according to World Fuel. “Operators traveling to and from the region will benefit from the local, in-market expertise this office and its staff provides. With advance knowledge of regional events and regulations, operators can expect higher service levels on trips, faster problem resolution, and better turn-around times on requests,” said World Fuel Services senior vice president of global operations Joel Purdom.

With the addition of the Toluca office at the Asertec FBO facility, the company now has eight strategically located regional offices: Latin America (Brazil and Mexico); Europe, Middle East and Africa (Switzerland and South Africa); Asia Pacific (Singapore and Shanghai); and North America (Canada and the U.S.). The company’s regional trip support offices are also backed up by a 24/7 global operations team in Houston, Texas.
