Wednesday, December 28, 2016
On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, APEX investor-members attended a private tour of Monaco Air Duluth’s newly expanded facility at the latest APEX Insider event. Monaco Air Duluth nearly tripled their footprint at Duluth International Airport and is well-positioned to increase international flight traffic to the world-class facility for service and maintenance.
With the expansion, Monaco Air Duluth added 9,600 square feet to their original 4,000 square foot terminal space. The nearly 14,000 square foot-facility allows the first-class, full-service fixed base operator (FBO) the ability to provide a variety of enhanced and concierge services to the general aviation visitors and tenants, the airlines serving Duluth, Cirrus, FedEx, AAR and others. Some of Monaco Air Duluth’s services include fueling, deicing, maintenance, customs clearance and hangar rentals.
At the event, APEX investor-members were greeted by Brian Hanson, APEX President and CEO, and were given an exclusive tour of the expanded facility by Mike Magni, President of Monaco Air Duluth, and Monaco Air staff. Magni also provided a history of their engagement in the Duluth community and commended APEX for their work in the aviation sector.
“Our goal has been to put Duluth on the map. We are an ideal stopover location for international flights,” said Mike Magni, President of Monaco Air Duluth. “We’re focused on exceptional customer service and transforming Duluth’s International Airport into a world-class destination.” During Magni’s presentation, he referenced several examples of aircraft that make routine visits to Monaco Air Duluth due to their first-class customer service and array of amenities.
“Monaco Air Duluth’s expansion is a huge opportunity for our region to leverage,” said Brian Hanson, APEX President and CEO. “Duluth’s airport is perfectly positioned to service international flights and has the potential to attract new business and industry attention."
The expanded facility has allowed Monaco Air Duluth to transform beyond a typical FBO. Comfortable lounges, large and small conference spaces, dining opportunities and fitness spaces will ensure a unique, luxury experience for clients. Monaco Air Duluth has considered the customer experience every step of the way. They have succeeded in drawing attention to Duluth with top-notch service and professionalism beyond typical aircraft services and customs clearance.
