Texas Gulf Coast Regional Airport, which sees more than 200 operations a day, has selected Avfuel as its exclusive fuel provider.

Avfuel has been tapped by Brazoria County as the fuel supplier for its Texas Gulf Coast Regional Airport. Located just south of Houston’s Class B airspace, the FAR Part 139-certified general aviation reliever airport, which has a 7,000-foot runway and is open 24/7, operates a full-service FBO specializing in quick turns. As a branded dealer, it now provides the full slate of Avfuel products including contract fuel, Avtrip rewards, and acceptance of the Avfuel Pro card, the latter of which allows customers to combine multiple transactions at the airport into a single transaction, avoiding any fees.

“We’re proud to serve Brazoria County as a gateway to our community and an economic engine for our region,” said Jeff Bilyeu, the airport’s aviation director. “Our decision to partner with Avfuel will help to drive more opportunities for the airport and those who benefit from its services.”

Mark Haynes, the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based fuel company’s vice president of sales said, “Adding Texas Gulf Coast Coast Regional Airport to the Avfuel network of independent FBOs will benefit our loyal operators with a new key location in the Houston and Gulf Coast region.”
