Air Elite by World Fuel Continues Growth with New North American FBOs

Air Elite expanded its footprint as three new locations joined the network, bringing the total to 76. The three newest locations are Bellingham Aviation Services (KBLI) in Washington, Aero-One Aviation (KDHN) in Alabama, and Maven by Midfield (KPTK) in Michigan. 

Air Elite’s expanding footprint gives flight departments more options to experience the Air Elite Difference across the globe. Flight departments select Air Elite locations because they can rely on a consistent and elevated service experience. To ensure this consistent quality, the network only invites the most reputable and dedicated FBOs. Additionally, Air Elite performs ongoing, onsite audits ensuring the members meet strict program compliance and participation standards.
