World Fuel Services has bolstered its supplied fuel network with the addition of two FBOs in the Houston and Chicago areas. At Houston business aviation hub William P. Hobby Airport, Galaxy FBO, the newest service provider on the field, has signed on. Located 30 minutes from downtown, the FBO features a 23,000-sq-ft two-story terminal and a pair of 38,000-sq-ft hangars with 28-foot-high, 245-foot clear span doors capable of sheltering the latest big business jets.

“The new facility will provide visitors with an impressive gateway to Houston and a great experience for the flight crew,” said Tony Wright, the service provider’s general manager.

Meanwhile, B. Coleman Aviation, one of two service providers at Gary/Chicago International Airport, has joined the network. That FBO features an 18,000-sq-ft terminal, a 12,500-sq-ft arrivals canopy, and 90,000 sq ft of hangar space that can accommodate the latest large-cabin business jets.

“Our facility provides the best access to Downtown Chicago, with competitive pricing on hangar space and amenities that fit your needs,” said company v-p Chris Kozlicki. “You can expect safer approaches, less air traffic, and relief from the city’s overhead costs at B. Coleman Aviation."

Both locations will offer new payment methods, including the World Fuel Contract card and Avcard. As well, both will now participate in World Fuel Rewards, the supplier’s brand loyalty program.
