avfuel network offers convenience with gateway fueling locations

May 21, 2019

With more than 650+ branded FBOs across North America and Europe, the Avfuel Network proves to be a convenient option for transatlantic operators looking for a premier gateway FBO location.  

Those traveling from Europe to North America requiring a quick stopover before reaching the mainland will find an exceptional experience at SouthAir Iceland, located in the stunning city of Reykjavik at Keflavik International Airport (BIKF). More than 40 years of experience means SouthAir’s long-serving, dedicated and highly-qualified staff has amassed a large portfolio of satisfied guests. 

Those looking to land on the East Coast of the U.S. will have ample options through Sheltair. With 17 premier, top-rated locations in New York, Georgia and Florida, staff stand ready to handle the unique needs of international operations, from expedient customs and ground handling, to accommodations and catering. And with an 18th location now open in Colorado (KBJC), operators can make a quick stop and head west. 

When continuing on to the west coast, Fargo Jet Center (KFAR) in Fargo, North Dakota, provides an optimum choice for a cross-country stopover along the Great Circle Route. With 24/7 FBO services, control tower operations and U.S. Port of Entry with on-site customs services, Fargo Jet Center caters to customers’ needs on their time for ultimate flexibility in transportation.

Those looking for a West Coast connection need look no further than Castle & Cooke Aviation with two optimum locations in Van Nuys, California (KVNY), and Everett, Washington (KPAE). If paradise is the ultimate destination, Castle & Cooke Aviation also serves operators out of Honolulu, Hawaii (PHNL). Each location provides non-step excellence and non-stop elegance. 

International operators crossing the Atlantic for a tropical escape now benefit from easy access to the Turks & Caicos Islands as the fuel supplier welcomed Blue Heron Aviation (MBPV) to its lineup of branded FBOs this year. Blue Heron Aviation provides expedited departures and quick access to everything on the island—all within 20 minutes. The FBO offers a streamlined customs process with a private entrance to the onsite facility, along with a contemporary FBO terminal for the modern world traveler, and safe and personalized services.

For those with a more northern destination, Avflight acquired its first Canadian FBO in Winnipeg, Manitoba, earlier this year at Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (CYWG). As a gateway to Canada, the operation provides customs and 24-hour services. 

Operators looking to learn more about the Avfuel Network’s premier locations and services can stop by booth E89 at EBACE to speak with an Avfuel representative or staff members from some of the fuel supplier’s branded FBOs.
