Sheltair selected by Gwinnett County/KLZU to take over FBO

Sheltair will expand its service network in Georgia, USA with the announcement that it has been selected by Gwinnett County Airport (Briscoe Field)to take over the FBO location formerly operated by Gwinnett Aero, whose lease has expired. Sheltair was chosen at the completion of a request-for-proposal process for the $17M project. The company operates 20 FBOs in Florida, Colorado, and Texas, as well as a facility in Savannah, Georgia.

“This is an important move for Sheltair into the Atlanta metro area and a large investment to redevelop the significant facilities already on site. Design and construction of a new FBO and restaurant/office facility will commence shortly.”  said Milo Zonka, VP of Real Estate.

Sheltair will begin operations on April 2 from the existing facility as an Avfuel-branded location.

The company was awarded a 40-year lease on the property at the state’s third-busiest airport, which saw 119,000 operations last year.
