January 2022 – The acquisition builds upon aviators’ preferred gateway to paradise in Marathon. While the FBO features the same benefits its key location has historically offered, these conveniences are now topped off with the Million Air care operators know they can trust, heightening the overall Caribbean experience.
Centrally located between Key Largo and Key West, the FBO provides easy access to all the islands of the archipelago and offers a less congested alternative to Key West International Airport, about 45 minutes away by car. The FBO is fully operational, with Million Air’s award-winning staff ready to offer guests a memorable experience, beginning with a staffed beverage cart that greets aircraft upon arrival. Refreshments are also available inside the coastal-style FBO, to be enjoyed indoors or out thanks to the building’s covered second-story veranda.
Currently wrapping up the facility design stage, Million Air will put its own stamp on the location with two phases of construction beginning Spring of 2023. Phase one features a new 9,948-square-foot FBO featuring a full-service indoor/outdoor restaurant and park-like green roof, both open to FBO guests and the Marathon community. A new fuel farm facility rounds out phase one, expected to be completed in Winter 2023
“We’re excited to serve the aviation community as we approach the Keys’ travel season,” Gary Buchanan, executive vice president of Million Air, said. “We have the space, the fuel and a team that can’t wait to welcome our guests.”
