Bellingham Aviation Services (BLI) Joins Avfuel Network, Provides Travelers with Convenient Hub, Stellar Service 

Bellingham Aviation Services at Bellingham International Airport has joined Avfuel’s network of branded FBOs. Flyers taking advantage of this convenient northwestern-United States Port-of-Entry now have access to Avfuel Contract Fuel, AVTRIP rewards and more.

Bellingham, Wash., provides international travelers with an ideal hub. Located 20 miles south of the Canadian border, 50 miles south of Vancouver, B.C., and 90 miles north of Seattle, Bellingham offers a convenient gateway to the Pacific Northwest, accessible to desirable destinations such as the San Juan Islands and Mt. Baker – as well as being an optimum tech stop for Alaskan-bound flyers.

Yet Bellingham Aviation Services’ offerings to flight crews and passengers go far beyond a convenient Port-of-Entry location.

“I’ve been in the customer service industry for over 25 years,” said Vanessa Oliver-Nielsen, President of Bellingham Aviation Services. “Our mission is to provide quality service and ensure that our customers are fully satisfied with every aspect of their BAS experience.”

The staff of Bellingham Aviation Services is keenly aware that every guest has individualized needs and goes out of the way to accommodate requests, particularly during weekends and after-hours calls.

“Many of our guests are trying to avoid the hustle and bustle of larger airports, trying to avoid getting lost in the shuffle,” Oliver-Nielsen said. “We’ll ensure that you and your aircraft receive personalized, attentive service.”

A wide range of services are available, including fuel, parking (ramp and hangar), GPUs, lav services, deicing, oxygen and more. Staff can assist with arranging rental cars (conveniently located on-site), accommodations, and catering arrangements. Bellingham Jet Center, the Maintenance and Avionics Division for Bellingham Aviation Services, provides a broad spectrum of services for both piston and turbine engine aircraft; including avionics, general maintenance, inspections and major repairs. Charter services, photo flights and flight lessons are also offered.

“Bellingham Aviation Services is an exceptional service provider and a definite asset to the Avfuel network of FBOs,” said Marci Ammerman, Avfuel’s Vice President, Marketing. “We could not be more thrilled to have them as a member of the Avfuel family.”
