Republic Jet Center One of First Five Fixed Based Operators (FBOs) to Earn Coveted Honor
Republic Jet Center announced today that it has officially been recognized with the Everest Fuel Preferred Award. The award honors high-performing Fixed Based Operators (FBOs) throughout the country that exemplify commitment to safe operations, excellent service, modernized facilities and who take a long-term approach to relationships. Republic Jet Center is among the first five FBOs to receive this recognition.
“We are thrilled to be one of the first Fixed Based Operators to be honored with the Everest Fuel Preferred Award for Excellence for our exceptional services and the quality of amenities we give to our valued customers on a day-to-day basis,” said Jeremy Epperson, President of Republic Jet Center. “We thank Everest Fuel for recognizing our efforts to provide our customers with the highest level of convenience and service. We understand that this honor is awarded very selectively, and we want to acknowledge the value this award bestows on us.”
To be selected as an Everest Fuel Preferred Award recipient, Republic Jet Center was assessed across a variety of selection criteria to determine that the FBO exceeded Everest’s standards for facilities, amenities and procedures. This included: an on-site evaluation audit of the facility; a safety inspection to ensure the FBO adheres to ATA 103 fuel quality-control procedures and it follows nationally recognized standards for training line-service personnel; the FBO has demonstrated outstanding commitment to service to Everest Fuel customers; and the FBO has maintained a long-term relationship with Everest and provides Everest customers with exceptional value.
“The Everest Fuel Preferred award was created to honor exceptional facilities,” said Paul Giovanetti, Sr. Manager of Fuel & FBO Services at Everest. “Republic Jet Center embodies our philosophy and selection criteria of safety, service, facilities, and relationship.”
