At NBAA’s annual Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SDC) it is traditional for the major aviation fuel providers to stake out their own aisles on the exhibit floor and fill them with their dealer FBOs. At this year’s show in Nashville, Tennessee, the number of those networks swelled as AEG Fuels exhibited its recently-launched AEG Connect brand for the first time.
The Miami-based company invited its FBO network members to the exhibit floor. These included the newly-opened Embassair at Miami Opa locka Executive Airport, National Jets at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International, SkyPlace FBO at San Antonio International, Legacy Jet Center at Oklahoma’s Tulsa International, Tucson Jet Center at Tucson International, Kansas Jet Center at Manhattan (Kansas) Regional, Boston Executive at Norwood Memorial in Massachusetts, and Puerto Rico FBO at San Juan Fernando Luis Ribas Dominicci/Isla Grande. From Brazil, five of TAM Aviação Executiva’s locations (Manaus, Congonhas, Confins, Pampulha, and Guarulhos) rounded out the AEG roster.
“We are very excited about exhibiting for the first time at [SDC],” Dave Diulus, v-p of AEG Connect, told AIN, adding the company brings an innovative solution to the branded FBO market as it looks to expand its network. “Bespoke service featuring supply, technology, and world-class support with a marketing focus on data drives sales.”
