Sheltair Heads to MEBAA

In an effort to further connect with operators worldwide, Sheltair Aviation is sending three of its representatives to Dubai for the Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) Show. Exhibiting along with Avfuel and 121 Inflight Catering — the northeast’s leading catering provider for general aviation and commercial airlines—attendees can visit Sheltair in booth no. 455 to learn more about its network of locations throughout New York, Georgia and Florida.

“Of particular interest will be our JFK location in New York,” said Karen Kroeppel, Sheltair’s director of sales and marketing. “Within our network of 17 FBOs, Sheltair JFK frequently serves as the gateway for our international travelers. From there, they travel on to our other prime locations, such as FLL in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and SAV in Savannah, Ga.”

International traffic is drawn to Sheltair JFK for its array of first-class services and amenities, including the ability to clear customs on the ramp 24 hours a day with prior notification, operational ease, support for diplomatic logistics and missions, onsite security screening, and planeside duty free—an all new offering exclusive to Sheltair at JFK and its other New York locations (visit booth 455 to learn more).

Attendees can also hear about Sheltair’s expansive hangar projects throughout its key locations. Most notably, Sheltair SAV—a popular destination for travelers to and from Asia and the Middle East—is completing its hangar project that will accommodate a plethora of Gulfstream traffic.

“The Sheltair network is involved in numerous projects at the moment,” said Kroeppel. “We’re excited to spread the word and find high value in connecting with customers face-to-face to convey our message. That’s what makes MEBAA so important for us—an opportunity to educate operators about our 17 locations as one-stop-shops for fuel, FBO services, catering, flight following and more.”
