Jet Aviation Dallas Was Host to More Than 600 Passengers on Board 80 Aircraft for the Big Game

Dallas, TX / February 7, 2011 – Jet Aviation’s Dallas FBO was the site of more than 80 touchdowns on Super Bowl Sunday, February 6. Supported by staff members from the Palm Beach, St. Louis and Teterboro FBOs, Jet Aviation Dallas performed like an all-star squad.

Wintery weather didn’t dampen the spirits of Super Bowl enthusiasts or the Jet Aviation team on Super Sunday. Jet Aviation fielded its own team of 20 customer service experts from its FBO locations across the U.S. for seven days of pre-game planning before tackling the big game itself.

“The unprecedented wintery mix threw challenge after challenge at us,” said Chris Todtenhausen, director FBO services, Jet Aviation Dallas. “Plans and preparation continually changed, but serving the customer never fell out of focus. From Learjets and Citations to GVs and Falcon 900s, this was a true team effort.”

Part of the facility was converted into a large pilot’s lounge where more than 60 crew members enjoyed the game in style. Black leather couches, recliners, big screen TVs and ample food made everyone feel at home while cheering for their teams.

In 1999, Jet Aviation opened its FBO at Love Field, just seven miles northwest of downtown Dallas. The city center is just 20 minutes away, and it also allows visitors easy access to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The company offers domestic and international handling services, complete line services, aircraft interior and exterior cleaning, refueling and nightly hangaring of aircraft.
