“Winnipeg is a key location for the Avflight Network,” said Garrett Hain, Avflight’s vice president of finance. “This acquisition will help connect Avflight customers to business in Winnipeg and serve as the network’s gateway to Canada.”

Avflight is part of the Avfuel Network, offering a range of Avfuel fueling products and services, such as Avfuel Contract Fuel and AVTRIP rewards. The Avfuel-branded network includes more than 650 FBOs around the globe.

Described as a full-service FBO, Avflight Winnipeg provides customs, 24-hour service, fueling services (including jet fuel and avgas), de-icing, courtesy cars and charter handling. Avflight will operate out of the existing FBO building with hangar space able to accommodate most business aircraft, 12,000 square feet of office space, a conference room, pilot lounge and passenger lobby.
