Ross Aviation has acquired Air Service Hawaii and its six-location FBO network in the islands. This brings the number of Ross Aviation locations to 25, and significantly establishes an important foothold for the brand in the Western Pacific.

“Air Service Hawaii is a premier aircraft services provider and key member of the Hawaiian aviation community,” says Ross CEO Brian Corbett. “Its unique 'aloha' spirit of warmth and friendliness fits perfectly with our Flight Hospitality standards, and we could not be more pleased to now have it as a part of the Ross Aviation family.”

Air Service Hawaii has been in operation since 1948 and boasts a rich history of success that's filled with as much adventure and colour as the islands themselves. Its locations today include Honolulu, Lanai, Maui, Hilo, Kauai and Kona. The company has brought many aviation firsts to the islands, recently including the first business jet hangar and FBO terminal at Kona International airport. The new 38,000 sq ft hangar will accommodate large cabin aircraft, and the new 5,000 sq ft FBO will feature a host of amenities from on-site catering to concierge services for crews and passengers. Both new structures will be completed this year.

Air Service Hawaii president Shaen Tarter says: “Mi Kosasa and I have thoroughly enjoyed carrying on the amazing history of this company, as well as its on-going contributions to aviation in the islands. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction to now have ownership passed to a company that's as dedicated as we have been to respecting the people, rich traditions and precious environment of Hawaii.”
