December 17, 2020 – HOUSTON – Air Elite® by World Fuel (Air Elite) continues to grow with a new distinct facility, Air 7, at Camarillo Airport (KCMA), which brings the network to a global reach of 76 locations. Air 7 serves Santa Barbara, Malibu, Santa Monica, Westlake Village, Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. With two 27,000 sq. ft. hangars, this facility can accommodate virtually any aircraft. As an Air Elite member, Air 7’s status as a distinct facility will be reinforced by the network’s customized service culture training, which fosters elevated customer service at Air Elite locations. Air 7 will also now have access to the Air Elite bonus, allowing them more World Fuel Rewards points to award to pilots and flight departments when they purchase World Fuel Contract or use AVCARD® by World Fuel at this location. Bob Oliver, CEO, Air 7, stated: “Air 7 is excited to be joining the Air Elite Network of exceptional FBOs, and Air 7 will carry on that great tradition of world-class customer service.” The global network of independent members is guided by a member-run board that contributes their industry experience and expertise in the future program and member development. Each board member is elected by the network, must meet the board bylaws qualifications and serves a term of two years with an optional third year. The newest addition to the Air Elite board is Ashley Bouzianis, representing Standard Aviation and the Caribbean regional members. As the Marketing Director at Standard Aviation in St. Thomas, Bouzianis will contribute her knowledge of aviation marketing. She was recently awarded the Pegasus Sapphire Business Aviation Award at the Caribbean Aviation conference as 2019 Woman of the Year. Ashley Bouzianis, marketing director, Standard Aviation, stated: “It is my distinct honor to join the Air Elite Board of Directors representing the Caribbean region. I look forward to learning from my peers on the board who have more in-depth industry knowledge and bringing my aviation marketing expertise to the table. As a board member, I can learn how other Air Elite FBOs run their operations and use my experience at Standard Aviation to bolster fellow members. I am confident this exchange of ideas will make improvements that enhance pilot and passenger experiences, at both my FBO and the other Air Elite FBOs with which I have the privilege of working.” Steve Drzymalla, senior vice president for business aviation bulk fuel, World Fuel Services, stated: “Air 7’s Camarillo facility offers a strategic location on the West Coast and exemplifies the Air Elite standard that gives customers an exceptional experience.
