Atlantic completes Ross combination and acquires three TAC Air FBOs
US FBO chain Atlantic Aviation has added significantly to its network presence with the completion of its combination with Ross Aviation. In addition, the company has acquired three former TAC Air FBOs
The Eppley Airfield FBO.

US FBO chain Atlantic Aviation has completed its business combination with Ross Aviation. In addition, the company has acquired three former TAC Air FBOs at Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska; Raleigh-Durham International airport in North Carolina; and Bradley International airport in Hartford, Connecticut. The three FBOs were part of a network of 17 TAC Air facilities, the other 14 of which were sold to, and rebranded as, Signature Aviation.

The combined companies and new locations will operate under the Atlantic Aviation brand name.

The new Atlantic Aviation offers customers more than 100 FBO locations, including the company's first locations in Hawaii and the Caribbean. The company's leadership is firmly committed to ensuring its on-going position as an award-winning provider of FBO services across North America, including the continuation and enhancement of its Atlantic Awards rewards programme.

In addition, Atlantic will be investing significantly in enhancements to its service, technology, sustainability and strategic infrastructure in order to provide more choices, improved experiences and better value for customers, as well as additional benefits for team members and for the communities they serve. Providing a safe, friendly and familiar experience across North America is a hallmark of Atlantic Aviation, something the company describes as being 'local everywhere'.

“Local everywhere is more than just a slogan,” says CEO Lou Pepper. “It's a belief that ensures we're not only where our customers want to be, but also that we reflect the culture of all of our local communities. It's a meaningful point of differentiation over a cookie-cutter approach to service, and it's something our customers truly appreciate.”

The combination of Atlantic, Ross Aviation and three former TAC Air facilities also brings more than 500 additional team members to the Atlantic Aviation family. Brian Corbett, previously CEO of Ross Aviation, has been appointed chief commercial and sustainability officer for Atlantic Aviation.

The business combination and recent acquisitions leverage the hospitality expertise of KSL Capital Partners, Ross Aviation's principal owner for the past six years and now a significant minority owner of Atlantic Aviation, with KKR's deep experience creating value in strategic infrastructure investments. KKR acquired Atlantic Aviation in 2021 and is the majority shareholder in the combined company.

“This combination brings together two highly regarded and complementary franchises to create an even stronger leadership presence in business aviation services,” says KKR partner Dash Lane. “We are excited to join with the KSL team to support the new Atlantic Aviation as it pursues its strategy for delivering superb customer experiences and driving long term sustainable growth.”
