U.S. FBO chain Sheltair and Avfuel are teaming up again at MEBAA (Booth 685) to promote their services to regional operators that fly to and within the U.S. While Avfuel is highlighting its thousands of fueling locations, Sheltair is showcasing its network of 18 FBOs located in Florida, Georgia, New York, and Colorado.

“We’re particularly enthused to speak to operators about our New York locations,” said Karen Kroeppel, Sheltair’s director of marketing and sales, adding, “Our JFK location often serves as the main gateway for international operators.”

At JFK, Sheltair offers around-the-clock U.S. customs services, support for diplomatic logistics and missions, onsite security screening, and planeside duty-free shopping.

Sheltair also operates four additional New York FBOs, including at LaGuardia Airport and Long Island MacArthur Airport.

Sheltair recently secured its 18th FBO site, at Denver Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, and will build a terminal, hangar facility, and fuel farm at the base, with construction scheduled to start in early spring and be completed by spring 2020. 

Sheltair is a member of the Avfuel Network, and customers can earn cash through Avtrip, Avfuel’s rewards program, and can pay for fuel and other purchases with the Avfuel Pro Card, providing additional benefits.

“The Avfuel Pro Card offers so much more than less-than-retail rates on fuel,” said Marci Ammerman, Avfuel’s v-p of marketing. “It’s a complete aviation purchasing solution.”

Avfuel has a network of more than 650 branded FBOs in addition to more than 3,000 fueling locations besides the Sheltair network, and operators can use the Avfuel card for streamlined transactions at all these global locations, with no fees on any fuel or non-fuel purchases. 

Avfuel and Sheltair invite all MEBAA attendees to drop by their display and learn more about their services.
