Long known for its aircraft charter business, North Carolina-based Koury Aviation has now opened an FBO at its Piedmont Triad International Airport, where it now provides a second option for general aviation services.

Koury Aviation, which has provided private jet charter in the North Carolina region for more than two decades, has established an FBO at Piedmont Triad International Airport, which now has two aviation services providers. “As the independent FBO on the field, we’ll be able to provide the personalized services our clientele requires,” said company president Bradford Koury.

The Avfuel-branded, 7,200-sq-ft facility, which began FBO operations on November 1, offers a passenger lobby, pilot lounge, 16-seat conference room, flight-planning room, full kitchen, crew car, and on-site U.S. Customs, as well as 35,000 sq ft of heated hangar space that can accommodate aircraft up to a Gulfstream IV. It also offers maintenance services through a partnership with Carolina Aviation Technical Services (CATS).

Koury has the full range of Avfuel programs, including contract fuel and Avtrip rewards points. "With its background in charter operations, the Koury team has a unique understanding of the intricacies of superior FBO services and values a focus on the customer experience, as does Avfuel," noted Joel Hirst, the fuel provider's vice president of sales.
