Atlantic Aviation has expanded its FBO footprint in the Caribbean with its acquisition of Blue Heron Aviation at Providenciales International Airport (PLS) in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The purchase of Blue Heron’s facilities at PLS expands Atlantic Aviation’s presence in the region, as it also serves business aviation clients in George Town (GCM) and Cayman Brac (CYB), Cayman Islands.
The newly acquired base in Turks and Caicos offers Atlantic Aviation’s customers a wide range of services for aircraft, crews, and passengers – including fueling and ground handling, 12 acres of unobstructed ramp space, a 6,800 square foot terminal with office space and crew lounge, and an onsite conference room. Immigration and Customs personnel are onsite at the FBO as well.
Led by general manager Roger Murphy, staff at the new facility are remaining in place following the acquisition.
“Expanding our presence in the Caribbean in this way is an important component of our on-going strategy of being ‘local everywhere,’” said Lou Pepper, CEO of Atlantic Aviation. “It’s our way of continuing to ensure we’re not only where our customers want to be, but also that we respect and reflect the culture of each of the local communities we serve.”
