B. Coleman to receive the World Fuel treatment
B. Coleman Aviation offers speedy access to downtown Chicago and has a handy canopy that protects customers from the elements during inclement weather. It is very pleased to have joined the WFS network.
B. Coleman's well-appointed lobby.

World Fuel Services (WFS) will now be supplying Chicago International airport-based B. Coleman Aviation. As a business aviation focused facility, B. Coleman serves as an alternative to the congested, commercial airspace of Chicago Midway International, O'Hare International airport and Chicago Executive airport. Based out of Gary/Chicago International, B. Coleman is independently owned and is a full-service FBO that is a 35-minute drive from the loop and metro area.

B. Coleman's modern facility has a ramp-side canopy that protects passengers and aircraft from the elements and is large enough to house a Bombardier Global Express and a Gulfstream G550. Whether aircraft needs to be protected from summer heat and hail or winter weather, the hangar space is an option year-round. Military, corporate or general aviation aircraft are easily accommodated in B. Coleman's hangar space and can expect to save when comparing hangar rental prices to those at nearby facilities. The facility also includes Wi-Fi, a surround sound theatre with a 105-inch screen, conference rooms, a cafe with complimentary beverages, a premier pilots lounge, fitness room and shower facilities.

VP Chris Kozicki says: “Our facility provides the best access to Downtown Chicago, with competitive pricing on hangar space and amenities that fit your needs. You can expect safer approaches, less air traffic and relief from the city's overhead costs at B. Coleman.”

As a member of the World Fuel Network, B. Coleman Aviation now has new payment options and a new loyalty offer with World Fuel Contract card, AVCARD, by World Fuel and World Fuel Rewards. Customers can save by utilising AVCARD to pay for services including B. Coleman Aviation's competitive hangar fees.

World Fuel Services has also added a new supplied location, Galaxy FBO, to its network. This corporate and general aviation facility at the Houston William P. Hobby airport is the second Galaxy FBO location to join the World Fuel network.

Galaxy FBO opened its newest facility in the south section of Houston's Hobby airport in June of this year. Only 30 minutes from downtown Houston, the facility boasts two 38,000 sq ft hangars with 28' height and 245' width door clearance that provide adequate space for aircraft storage. Pilot and VIP lounges are available on the first floor of the two-storey 23,000 square-foot building. Additional parking, storage and office space adjacent to the hangars is also available for lease to prospected aviation-related tenants.

Tony Wright, general manager, Galaxy FBO says: “The new facility will provide visitors with an impressive gateway to Houston, and a great experience for the flight crew.”
