Company Calls KTPA A "Flagship Location"
Tampa International Jet Center has joined Avfuel’s Avnet
network of premier FBOs to offer Avfuel programs and solutions.
Opened in 2004 by aviation industry veteran and FBO President Phil
Botana, Tampa International Jet Center today enjoys a considerable
portion of the region’s aviation traffic market share. Backed
by Botana’s extensive experience in FBO and aviation
operations, the jet center continues to grow at a steady pace.
Tampa Jet has been ranked among the top FBOs in the country every
year since it opened, by AIN’s annual FBO Survey. As an
Avfuel-branded FBO, Tampa International Jet Center now awards
AVTRIP points on qualifying fuel purchases, and honors the Avfuel
Contract Fuel program for jet fuel savings.
“At Tampa International Jet Center, we endeavor to go
above and beyond basic needs and provide for customers’
special and unique needs. We think of ourselves not as a portal to
the airport, but an extension of the overall travel
experience,” said Botana. “Avfuel is pleased to have
Tampa International Jet Center (TIJC) become an
integral part of our network of premier FBOs,” said Avfuel
Director of Marketing Marci Ammerman. “A flagship location
such as TIJC is ideal for our contract fuel users and AVTRIP
members. We look forward to working with Phil Botana and his team
on everything from marketing to quality assurance.”
Tampa International Jet Center has ramp access granted to ground
vehicles and the Southeast US’s largest aircraft canopy
(12,500 square feet). With 108,000 square feet of hangars, the FBO
can offer overnight or long-term storage. Customers can either stop
over for a while or receive a fast “quick turn.”
Pilots will enjoy a dedicated crew lounge with large TV, private
bath with shower, and snooze room. They can also plan flights and
use WSI in a briefing area. Among the many other amenities
available, crews have access to luxury crew cars and courtesy
transportation to airlines and local restaurants.
