St. Thomas Jet Center & Lehigh Valley Aviation Services Join The Air Elite Network

A milestone for the network, St. Thomas Jet Center ( has become the first Caribbean location to carry the Air Elite designation. Industry veterans, owner’s Michael and Susan Hancock have over 59 years of combined experience in virtually every facet of the aviation industry. Their experienced team and their recently renovated facilities are sure to help make your trip to this island paradise one to remember. 

"It is an honor to be the first Air Elite FBO in the Caribbean.  The completion of our facility renovations and new customs building streamlines the arrival/departure logistics to allow our customers spend more time enjoying this wonderful island," said Susan Hancock regarding her FBO’s recent Air Elite designation.

In yet another milestone for Air Elite, Lehigh Valley Aviation Services ( became the first Air Elite FBO owned and operated by a municipality. Lehigh Valley Aviation Services offers travelers great service and convenient access to the Lehigh Valley, Pocono Mountains, greater Philadelphia and Western New Jersey at a lower cost when compared to other local airports. The Lehigh-Valley Airport Authority worked closely with the Air Elite team to make the transition efficient and seamless.

"All of us at Lehigh Valley Aviation Services are excited to be part of the Air Elite network.  We feel that the combination of World Fuel Services and the Phillips 66 brand gives us the tools we need to grow our business now and position ourselves for future success.  We look forward to partnering with other Air Elite members to establish Air Elite as the premier name in FBO services," said Darren Betters, Lehigh Valley International Airport’s Director of Commercial Services. 

With the addition of St. Thomas Jet Center and Lehigh Valley Aviation Services, the Air Elite Network now includes 25 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.
