MRB Aviation, the lone service provider at Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport/Shepherd Field (MRB) in Martinsburg, is the latest to join the Avfuel dealer network. The airport—which is the largest and oldest in the state, dating back to 1923—recently acquired the FBO from long-time operator Aero-Smith.
“We look forward to beginning this new partnership with Avfuel as we assume the FBO’s operation,” said Nicolas Diehl, executive director of the airport, which sees more than 30,000 operations a year that range from military aircraft to sports teams on its 8,815-foot runway. “Avfuel’s reliability and personalized approach to customer service mirrors the level of care we aspire to provide our customers on a daily basis.”
The location will now participate in the Avtrip rewards program and offer Avfuel contract fuel. It will also accept the Avfuel Pro Card, which gives customers the ability to put all purchases—whether they include fuel or not—on one transaction, allowing them to avoid multiple processing fees.
“We couldn’t be happier to add MRB Aviation to the Avfuel family of branded FBOs,” said Joel Hirst, the Michigan-based fuel provider’s vice president of sales. “The addition gives pilots flying throughout the Avfuel network a trusted service provider with competitive prices in a key Eastern U.S. market.”
