Tampa, FL (December 20, 2012) – World Fuel Services announced today that Swift Aviation, located at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in Phoenix, AZ, has joined the growing Air Elite network.
Swift Aviation’s (www.swiftaviationgroup.com) state-of-the-art facility is centrally located, providing fast and easy access to downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale and is capable of handling any size aircraft - general aviation, commercial, or military. The FBO has a vast selection of equipment and amenities to meet customer needs and the experienced staff makes every effort to ensure that those customer needs are met fully.
“Swift Aviation is proud to be a part of the Air Elite network. Our focus has always been to exceed our customer’s expectations. We are stronger than ever and our customer and line service representatives will ensure our customer’s needs are exceeded every time!” said Tim Vallowe, Swift Aviation’s Manager of FBO Services.
When Swift’s says “We’ve got you covered”, it is not only their service philosophy. It happens to be true in the literal sense as the FBO is home to the world’s largest arrival and departure canopy which spans 31,000 square feet of their ramp. It is Swift’s goal to always ensure their customer’s expectations are exceeded - leaving no doubt that they are the best FBO in Arizona.
With the addition of Swift Aviation, the Air Elite network now includes 27 locations world wide. The network was established in late 2011 and each FBO must meet a number of airport, facility and service quality standards to qualify for membership.
