Avfuel Corporation announces the addition of Flightways Columbus at Columbus Airport (KCSG) to its branded FBO network, connecting flight departments with a premier choice for aviation services in the southeastern U.S. 

As the lone FBO at the area’s only towered airport, Flightways Columbus offers guests streamlined travel services, including DCA access, exemplary customer care, third-party maintenance and an avionics shop on field, a convenient location along the Alabama/Georgia border, and uncongested airspace for tech stops and overnights alike. Situated between Georgia’s main interstates, Flightways Columbus lands guests closer to area businesses and attractions, including 25 miles of riverfront that features the country’s largest man-made whitewater rafting excursion.  

Flightways Columbus provides its guests with a complete portfolio of professional services and amenities, including: full-service jet fuel and avgas, and self-serve avgas; GPU; lavatory service; potable water; a stair truck/passenger stairs; baggage unloading and loading; cleaning; after-hours service; hotel reservations; rental cars and limo services; catering; a comfortable passenger lobby; an executive conference room with table seating for six, additional seating for up to 20 and full A/V; a pilot briefing room with WSI; a relaxing pilot lounge and snooze room; and a crew car and van. 

As an Avfuel-branded location, Flightways Columbus provides customers with lucrative rewards with AVTRIP and competitive prices with Avfuel Contract Fuel. In addition to contract fuel, customers will benefit from transaction ease when using the Avfuel Pro Card at the FBO with the ability to put everything—fuel and non-fuel items with or without a fuel purchase—on one transaction, avoiding processing fees. 

“The Avfuel team is thrilled to welcome Flightways Columbus to the Avfuel Network,” said Joel Hirst, senior vice president sales for Avfuel. “Its team is known for providing attentive care to planes, pilots and passengers—we look forward to helping enhance that customer experience with Avfuel’s reliable fuel supply and suite of solutions. It’s a true partnership focused on the needs of the customers. We look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead and thank the Flightways Columbus team for entrusting its fuel supply services with Avfuel.”  

“We are excited to be a part of the Avfuel team,” said FBO manager, Michele Renfroe. “At Flightways, we challenge ourselves to establish a personal connection with all customers and strive to create positive experiences that are unforgettable, which falls in line with the service that Avfuel provides—to connect people, companies and cultures.”
