The announcement was made during EBACE 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland, by Jose Maldonaldo president of PAZOS. The PAZOS executive spoke about the inauguration of an FBO, slated to begin operations in the autumn, at Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The new 12,500 square feet building will more than double PAZOS’ existing operation, including an extension of hangar facilities and aircraft parking ramp to give way for projected traffic increase.

The PAZOS expansion includes the opening of a full service US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) terminal within the new FBO building.

Jose Maldonado said: “Providing customs and immigration clearance to all general, corporate, charter passengers and transient aircrafts at the San Juan airport. Making passenger processing, a hassle-free exercise as clients continue on to their final destination.”

Steve Drzymalla, vice president of World Fuel Services, Business Aviation Bulk Fuel added: “PAZOS joined the Air Elite Network as one of the first Caribbean locations and has been one of the network’s clear leaders in growth and development in the region. These new enhancements will no doubt enhance the Air Elite diamond service experience for customers when traveling within the network.”

“With World Fuel Services as our fuel supplier, we have had a strategic partner through their strong fuel supply, industry relationships and marketing experience. We have engaged with their team on many fronts which has greatly impacted our operational and service philosophies,” said Maldonado. “We’ve forged great friendships with members of their team and we value the consistent interaction and support we receive from them. World Fuel Services provides us much more than reliable fuel supply and we look forward to many years of collaborating with them to create innovative service and operational solutions for our flight operators and aircraft owner.”

As part of the Air Elite Network membership, PAZOs participates in The Ritz-Carlton customised customer service training. The FBO will delivers diamond service with the Air Elite Network Concierge program and awards elevated FlyBuys Rewards to customers who participate in the loyalty program. Customers earn points with AVCARD purchases or trip support and contract fuel purchases through World Fuel | Colt.

Maldonado added: “Indeed, these are exciting times. However, our success is only possible thanks to the hard work, loyalty and dedication of every member of the PAZOS family, without whom, this expansion would not be possible.”
