Pentastar Aviation and Avflight have announced they have teamed up to provide customers with private jet charter, management, and aircraft maintenance support for their newest Fixed Base Operation (FBO) at Gerald R. Ford International Airport (GRR).
Avflight, a Michigan based company operating at 22 airports across North America and Europe, six of which are in Michigan, will open a new state-of-the-art FBO in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the spring of 2020. The new facility, where Pentastar will have an office, includes a 5,000 square foot FBO building with 30,000 square foot hangar capacity which will provide a wide range of support services for both general aviation and the airlines including fuel sales, hangar storage, aircraft ground handling services, de-icing, and concierge services.
“While our facility includes all the amenities of a high-end FBO, we want to have comprehensive services for business aircraft customers,” said Joe Meszaros, Avflight Vice President Operations.
“Pentastar, also a Michigan based company, has a long history of customer service excellence and their expertise in charter, management and maintenance make them the perfect partner.”
“We are continually looking for alliances that complement our service offerings and assist us in reaching our target market. Avflight is a respected and trusted partner with a reputation of excellence that creates a natural synergy between our two companies,” said Brad Bruce, Pentastar Aviation Executive Vice President of Maintenance & Sales.
“This partnership will allow us to expose Avflight customers to the full spectrum of services we provide, and having an office at the Avflight facility in Grand Rapids will make it easy for them to take advantage of our combined offerings.”
