Avfuel Corporation announced the addition of Aero Center Spokane (KGEG) and Aero Center Felts Field (KSFF)—both in Spokane, Washington—to its branded network of FBOs. The partnership comes as Aero Center Spokane, located at Spokane International Airport, opened its doors this fall, welcoming private aviators to a new premier service option in the Pacific Northwest. 

The addition of Aero Center Spokane and Felts Field furthers Avfuel' commitment to enhance its branded presence in strategic locations, making for the industry’s most robust branded fuel supply network for flight departments to fly and fuel within. With the adoption of the Avfuel brand, Aero Centers’ Washington FBOs further elevate the customer experience, offering competitive rates via Avfuel Contract Fuel, loyalty rewards via AVTRIP, and staff training via the FAA-approved Avfuel Training System.

Joel Hirst, Avfuel’s senior vice president of sales, commented: “We congratulate Aero Centers on the opening of its new, state-of-the-art FBO and are honored to partner with its team members at both Spokane FBOs as they serve this vibrant region with the aviation services to match. Aero Centers’ commitment to superior customer service aligns perfectly with Avfuel's core values. Together, we aim to exceed the expectations of pilots and passengers with streamlined services, reliable products and valuable programs.”
