Plattsburgh is the latest facility to carry Avflight brand
As the sole full-service FBO at the airport, Avflight Plattsburgh offers 24-hour fuelling services (including jet fuel and avgas), US Customs, aircraft parking, hangar space, expert ground handling and plenty more besides.
Avflight Corporation operates at strategically-located airports in North America and Europe, specialising in corporate, commercial and military traffic and services.

Avflight Corporation has added its branding to a 24th FBO: Avflight Plattsburgh at Plattsburgh International airport in New York. The facility serves the entire Plattsburgh, Montréal and Lake Placid region, including upstate New York, southern Quebec and Vermont, and was previously operated by Eagle Aviation Services.

“The addition of Avflight Plattsburgh provides a key position for the Avflight network in the northeast,” says Garrett Hain, Avflight's VP of finance. “This location serves as the ultimate gateway to thriving international businesses and leisure destinations throughout the region. We are proud to bring Avflight's expertise and passion for aviation, backed by a network of 24 FBOs, to PBG, connecting our loyal customers with the facilities and services they expect in the Avflight network.”

As the sole full-service FBO at the airport, Avflight Plattsburgh offers 24-hour fuelling services (including jet fuel and avgas), US Customs, aircraft parking, hangar space, expert ground handling, a GPU/power cart, courtesy transportation, rental cars, catering, aircraft maintenance, weather service access and professional concierge services. The FBO is an Avfuel-branded location, offering competitive pricing and transaction ease with Avfuel Contract Fuel and lucrative rewards with AVTRIP.

Avflight will establish its new FBO business out of the field's existing facilities, including: a 12,852 sq ft heated hangar; two 10-bay T-hangars; more than 100,000 gallons of fuel storage; a self-serve avgas pump; a 200,000 sq ft ramp and a 5,600 sq ft FBO terminal building. Avflight's facilities and services allow the operation to accommodate any size corporate jet at KPBG.

Now that the Avflight's agreement with the airport is finalised, it will turn its attention to modernising the facilities to the Avflight brand, including new signage, design elements and décor. Once updated, the FBO will feature well-appointed passenger and pilot lobbies, a flight planning room, a snooze room and a conference room with full A/V and seating for 12.

Conveniently located within upstate New York's go-to metropolis, Avflight Plattsburgh grants customers easy access to a number of businesses and popular leisure destinations, including: Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks, outdoor guide services, museums and golf resorts.

Avflight Corporation operates at strategically-located airports in North America and Europe, specialising in corporate, commercial and military traffic and services. All Avflight locations are part of the Avfuel network, offering a full array of Avfuel fueling products and services, such as Avfuel Contract Fuel and AVTRIP rewards.
