Jan. 15--That "thud" felt on New Year's Eve was fuel numbers hitting bottom at Salina Regional Airport, Tim Rogers told the airport authority board Wednesday morning.
"We ended the year with a thud on fuel sales," Rogers said.
But a rebound is expected.
Flower Aviation of Salina shut down and America Jet sold its fueling division in December. The 106,917 gallons delivered on the airfield last month was a 50 percent decrease from the same month in 2012. The 2013 total of 1.757 million gallons was the lowest since 1985.
The airport authority assesses a fee of 7.45 cents a gallon distributed on the airfield.
AvFlight, which brought its fixed base operator business -- and national and international connections as an AvFuel dealer -- to Salina this month, has been busy, Rogers said, although a full month of fuel flowage numbers won't be available until the Feb. 19 meeting.
