Avfuel expanded to two of Italy’s most prominent destinations—Rome Ciampino (LIRA) and Milan Linate (LIML)—as ARGOS VIP joins its branded network. 

As branded locations, ARGOS VIP at LIRA and LIML provides operators exclusive access to Avfuel Contract Fuel for a competitively priced, reliable fuel product in these high-traffic locations. 

“The addition of ARGOS VIP as branded FBOs is a major opportunity for us to better serve international operators looking to fly within the Avfuel Network,” said Joel Hirst, Avfuel’s vice president of sales. “These are two high-profile cities for international travelers headed to Italy for business or leisure; to expand our presence to these locations is beneficial for Avfuel, our business partners and our customers.” 

In addition to its Avfuel-branded locations in Rome Ciampino and Milan Linate, ARGOS VIP offers its executive services at 13 other airports (12 in Italy and one in Switzerland): Milan Malpensa (LIMC); Verona (LIPX); Venice (LIPZ); Pisa (LIRP); Naples (LIRN); Cagliari (LIEE); Catania (LICC); Olbia (LIEO); Treviso (LIPH); Albenga (LIMG); Lugano (LSZA); Salerno (LIRI); and Palermo (LICJ). 

Patrons of ARGOS VIP enjoy flight services, ground services, deluxe catering, concierge services, and higher standards of safety and customer care at all 15 airports. 

“ARGOS VIP is the ultimate Italian GA flying solution,” said Hirst. “In addition to its major presence and market share throughout the country, it has a reputation for the executive-level customer care that passengers and crews require. To be associated with its operation and serve its customers in Rome and Milan presents great opportunity.” 

With the summer months quickly approaching, the ARGOS VIP team stands ready to provide guests with exceptional customer care as their first stop on an adventurous Italian getaway, where history, art, wine, fine-dining and fashion await in the world’s cultural epicenter.
