Avflight Grows with 26th FBO in the Family

Hattiesburg, Mississippi Widens Operator's National Footprint

Avflight Corporation completed the acquisition of its 26 Fixed Base Operator locale, announcing the opening of Avflight Hattiesburg, at Mississippi’s Hattiesburg Laurel Regional Airport.

The deal saw them purchase the location from US Aviation FBO Services, which included a 4,000-square-foot FBO terminal and 125,000 square feet of hangar space. The terminal is equipped with all the niceties of a modern, well-appointed FBO, with lounges for pilots and pax, catering capabilities, and all the usual office space. The Avflight brand has been at work building up their cachet among business jet operators, which should help make their Hattiesburg location a popular fit for passing jets. The FBO has 18 full units with the ability to park jets as large as a Gulfstream G550.

"We are excited to grow the Avflight FBO Network with the addition of Hattiesburg," said Garrett Hain, vice president of finance and treasurer at Avflight. "This acquisition not only expands our geographic reach, but also reinforces our dedication to serving general aviation operations at key locations across North America.”

"The Avflight team is proud to support the Hattiesburg community as its new gateway for visitors, contributing to the region’s economic growth," said Hain. "Avflight looks forward to building lasting relationships with local stakeholders and investing in initiatives that enhance the region's prosperity."
