Avfuel welcomed Blue Heron Aviation (MBPV) to its branded network of independent FBOs, offering operators a gateway to paradise with the benefit of Avfuel programs, including Avfuel Contract Fuel and AVTRIP rewards.

Under private ownership since opening its doors in 2014, Blue Heron Aviation has used first-in-class facilities, professionalism and customer care to attract the majority of the island’s discerning travelers. Its experienced staff provides the warm island hospitality vacationers deserve when landing on its ramp, with a level of personalized service and attention to detail unmatched by others.

“Our ethos is ‘Safety & Service First,’” said Roger Murphy, Blue Heron Aviation’s general manager. “This ethos permeates every decision we make at Blue Heron Aviation—which includes our decision to partner with Avfuel as a branded location, as Avfuel also embraces a customer-first approach. This can only benefit our operation and those who choose to fly in to our FBO. Our customers will continue to enjoy everything they love about Blue Heron Aviation now, but with the added benefit of Avfuel solutions backing our operation, including fuel and loyalty rewards.”

Conveniently located mid-field on the south side of the runway, Blue Heron Aviation provides expedited departures and quick access to everything on the island—all within 20 minutes. The FBO features a state-of-the-art 7,000 square foot building built in a contemporary design for the modern traveler and 12 acres of paved aircraft parking able to accommodate up to a Boeing 757-200. Its team represents more than a decade of professional ground handling and fuel services (initial NATA training), and its services include, in-house customs and immigration, concierge services, aircraft cabin cleaning, catering, coffee and ice, foreign newspapers, dishes, laundry, a luxury lounge, and conference room.

Joel Hirst, vice president of sales for Avfuel Corporation, said, “We’re pleased to welcome this upstanding operation to our family of Avfuel-branded locations. Blue Heron Aviation provides operators a premier experience in a key destination location and we’re proud to raise the Avfuel sign as partners.”
