Establishing and Managing FBOs in Limo Anywhere

Serving customers that utilize private aviation as important part of the limousine business. As such these FBOs (Fixed Base Operators) are handled uniquely in Limo Anywhere to increase the efficiency in serving these locations.

 
FBOs are private aviation terminals that provide aircraft maintenance and refueling services, as well as terminal services for corporately or privately owned aircraft not affiliated with regular airline service. Some of the more well known companies that provide FBO services are Nexjet, Signature Flight Support, Atlantic Aviation, Jet Aviation or Landmark Aviation. As of April of 2009 there were over 3,00O FBOs in the US and Canada.

FBOs construct a fare like any other location by the city and/or zip code contained in the location. See the Knowledge Base articles Fixed Rates & Zones Setup and/or Establishing and Managing Airports in Limo Anywhere.
