Republic Jet Center Offers World Class FBO Services and Amenities at Republic Airport (KFRG) in Farmingdale, New York
Farmingdale, NY (August 15, 2017) – Republic Jet Center, a Signature Select member of the Signature Flight Support global FBO network, announced today that it has officially assumed full ownership and operations of all fixed base operator (FBO) facilities and services formerly owned and operated by Talon Air, Inc. The 100,000 square foot FBO complex, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and technology, is located at Republic Airport (KFRG) in Farmingdale, New York. Republic Jet Center clients will continue to have access to the first-class amenities that has become the hallmark of these facilities since FBO status was awarded in 2015. Republic Jet Center will also continue as Long Island’s only FBO to operate within the Signature Flight Support Corporation’s network, offering added value for clients by way of point-to-point coordination with other Signature locations—saving time and ensuring consistent, high-touch concierge service.
“We are planning many new and exciting changes for our facilities over the next several years that will further enhance the experience of Republic Jet Center clients,” said Jennifer Minori-Baumann, General Manager of Republic Jet Center. “Our mission has always been to provide our customers with the highest level of convenience and service. Our FBO operations and expert staff are among the best in the country. With our new, state-of-the-art facility and designation as Signature Select Partner, we will continue to lower costs for aircraft owners and operators while providing more comprehensive luxury amenities. We are incredibly excited to now be Republic Jet Center, and we look forward to the future.”
Republic Jet Center has the largest hangar space offered by any of Republic Airport’s FBO’s, providing 24/7 maintenance and fueling services for based and transient aircrafts. Republic Jet Center also offers unparalleled aircraft and crew services. These include an on-site Part 145 repair station; a NATA Safety First Certified line crew; hangar and ramp parking; and full de-icing.
In addition, Republic Jet Center features a 90,000 gallon jet fuel farm that has a generator back-up. By implementing its own fueling systems at the airport rather than relying on outside sources, Republic Jet Center features the lowest retail price for Jet-A and AvGas available at Republic Airport.
While on the ground, Republic Jet Center provides deluxe passenger services, including planeside vehicle access, an executive lounge and conference room with wi-fi access and satellite television, full concierge services with luxury car and limousine transportation access, and a VIP helicopter transfer to Manhattan. Additionally, Republic Jet Center offers a pilot lounge with sleep rooms and showers.
Also, Republic Jet Center is now the first FBO facility on Long Island that is part of the Signature Support Global Network of more than 200 worldwide locations. This will create value-added cost savings for air travelers and will give Signature members the ability to accumulate TailWins™ rewards for the first time when flying in and out of Republic Airport.
“Republic Airport has a long and enviable aviation history on Long Island, from its early years as the site of aircraft manufacturing by the Fairchild, Grumman, Seversky and then Republic Aviation companies, to helping fuel the development and growth of our region from the early 80’s through today,” noted Minori-Bauman. “In fact, our logo design pays tribute to this notable airport lineage. We are excited to be a part of this historic airport, and we are looking forward to being a major contributor to the region’s continued growth and prosperity throughout the 21st Century and beyond. We expect our clients, Republic Airport, and the surrounding community to see a real economic benefit from the convenience and services Republic Jet Center provides.”
