Avfuel announces that Lake Simcoe Regional Airport has joined the Avfuel Network as a fuel and branding partner. Originally opened in 1991, this Ontario-based regional airport is located between Barrie and Orillia, ON – a rapidly growing community just north of Toronto nestled on the beautiful Kempenfelt Bay. The FBO is only a short drive away from Toronto itself and minutes away from Ontario’s Cottage Country at the threshold of the pristine Muskokas.
“We are delighted to welcome Lake Simcoe Regional Airport to Avfuel’s global nexus of FBOs,” says Joel Hirst, Vice President Sales for Avfuel. “This is a modern and sophisticated FBO that provides great access to Canada. It is an added plus that the facilities are fully serviced by the Canada Border Service Agency, allowing the airport to accommodate both international passengers and freight as a Commercial Port-of-Entry.”
“Lake Simcoe Regional Airport is one of the newest and best positioned regional airports in Canada,” says Michael Drumm, General Manager of Lake Simcoe Regional Airport. “We are the perfect location for travel to Toronto, Barrie, or any number of highly sought after vacation spots.”
In addition to the convenient location, the facilities are equally enticing. The 6,001 ft. runway and low congestion make Lake Simcoe Regional Airport the perfect choice for a wide range of aircraft, from recreational to freight and everything in between. The FBO offers fully outfitted corporate boardroom as well as an executive passenger waiting area, café, separate pilot and passenger lounges, and a seasonal patio. The airport also boasts over 140 acres of available space for developing commercial opportunities. Partnering with Avfuel gives Lake Simcoe Regional Airport access to Avfuel’s wealth of resources and services including Avfuel Contract Fuel, AVTRIP pilot rewards program, and more.
