Construction has begun at the Red Deer Regional Airport to convert the existing terminal into a full-service fixed based operator, in partnership with Tucana Aviation.
The term fixed based operator is given to an organization granted the right by an airport to provide a variety of ground support services, such as fuelling, maintenance, catering, transportation/accommodation logistics, etc.
Tucana Aviation is a well-established organization with a combined 30 years leadership experience in the aviation/oil and gas business, says the airport.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Tucana Aviation, and for the opportunity to further grow the airport by leveraging their experience and relationships,” says Graham Ingham, CEO of the Red Deer Regional Airport states.
“Focusing on service and making sure our customers have a positive experience while at the airport is also extremely important to us, as we attempt to capitalize on an already thriving charter market currently running along the Edmonton-Calgary corridor.”
