Landmark buys Southwest Airport Services in Houston
Landmark Aviation has bought Ellington Partners and Southwest Airport Services at Ellington Airport in Houston, Texas.
This is the second Landmark Aviation location in Houston area and joins the FBO at George Bush Intercontinental/Houston Airport.
Dan Bucaro, Landmark Aviation president and CEO says: “We are happy to expand our footprint in Houston, and we look forward to being a part of Ellington Airport and its surrounding communities.”
“Ellington is a great alternative to other more congested airports in the Houston area,” Buccaro adds.
The FBO was founded by Jim Bath in 1984. With two executive terminals and hangar, office and shop space, the new Landmark Aviation facility provides support to private and corporate aviation as well as various governmental agencies including NASA.
“We are very proud of what our team built at Ellington,” said Bill King, who served as president of the Ellington operations from 1999 until its sale this month. “We know that with the management and financial resources that Landmark Aviation brings to the table, Ellington will continue to grow and be a great asset for the city and this community.”
Landmark Aviation began operations in the former Southwest Airport Services facility on 18 February. The location includes conference rooms, pilot and passenger lounges, as well as an observation deck. Ellington Airport is located minutes southeast of downtown Houston.
