FBOs Reaching the Ends Of Their Contracts
The Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) is asking
members of the aviation community to participate in a survey about
the services they require when either using or contemplating the
use of the airport. The results of the survey will be used in
shaping the future of FBOs at the airport.
The airport currently has two FBOs operating on the airfield;
Atlantic Aviation and Signature Flight Support. Both companies are
operating under long term contracts that have either expired and
are now on a month to month basis, or will soon expire. At the end
of the existing contracts, ownership of the facilities reverts back
to the airport.
Airport management has made a commitment to solicit input from
current and potential stakeholders in order to define the future
arrangements for providing FBO services at CCIA. The airport has
developed the survey as the vehicle for soliciting this input and
is in the process of distributing the survey to the broadest market
possible. This includes current tenants and subtenants of the
existing FBO operators, past customers, potential customers, the
airlines, and other stakeholders in the aviation community.
In a news release, the city of Corpus Christi said that airport
management will be putting together Requests for Qualifications and
Proposals for each operation and will be seeking qualified
operators to provide the outlined services.
The survey is available on line and can be accessed
by clicking on the FBO Survey button at the top of the home
page. The results of the survey will be compiled and
posted on the airport web site after May 15, 2011.
