Beacon Air Group is proud to welcome travellers to its brand-new private terminal and full-service FBO, which opened last month at Montana's Billings Logan International airport.
The opening of the Beacon Air Group FBO gives aircraft operators bound for Billings, Montana a choice when it comes to aviation service providers.

Beacon Air Group has opened its latest FBO at Billings Logan International airport in Montana. The FBO's 24/7-capable operations began with the completion of its 9,000sq ft luxury terminal, complete with 1,800sq ft of leasable office space and 36,000sq ft of hangar space able to accommodate aircraft up to a Gulfstream G600.

Located on the Rimrocks, Beacon Air Group grants travellers premier access to Montana's largest city and the vibrant landscape surrounding it.

"We are honoured to serve as the region's new premier FBO option, connecting aviators with the beauty and bustle of southern Montana," says owner Joel Simmons. "Every aspect of Beacon Air Group was designed with our customers' needs in mind, from the facilities that house our operation to the services we provide out of it."

The facility houses all the amenities modern travellers require: an inviting, pet-friendly passenger lobby; two conference rooms with seating for six and full A/V; a business centre; a seminar room that seats 50; courtesy crew cars; a relaxing crew room; well-appointed restrooms; wi-fi; and food delivery service and vending machines.

These amenities are accentuated by a complete portfolio of aviation and concierge services through the FBO and its local, preferred vendors, including full-service 100LL and jet A; aircraft detailing; aircraft lubricants; gourmet catering; charter brokerage; deicing; flight planning; GPU 28v; ice and potable water; laundry and dishwashing service; lavatory service; oxygen service; limousine service and onsite rental cars; terminal transportation; long-term vehicle parking; tie downs; and corporate hotel and car rates.

"Our aim is to always provide first-class service to the flying community by anticipating their needs and desires," says Simmons. "Along with a first-class staff, we accomplish this by partnering with industry and regionally-best service providers to offer a true full-service experience."

As it opened its doors, Beacon Air Group also joined the Avfuel Contract Fuel Network offering flight departments competitive rates on jet fuel prices and streamlined transactions with the Avfuel Pro Card.

"The Avfuel team congratulates Beacon Air Group on the opening of its first-in-class FBO," says senior sales manager of the western US David Mittleman. "We are proud to complement its operation with Avfuel's leading contract fuel programme and the support that comes along with it, helping to provide the full-service experience flight departments seek. With this partnership, we're able to connect our more than 6,000 flight department customers with the top-notch services and facilities Beacon Air Group has to offer."
