Odyssey Aviation First Ever FBO at Exuma International
Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas
Odyssey Aviation Bahamas plans to build the first ever FBO facility at the Exuma International Airport (MYEF) in Georgetown, Exuma.
The plans for a new FBO come shortly after Odyssey Bahamas opened two new “Satellite locations” in Georgetown, Exuma (MYEF) and Treasure Cay, Abaco (MYAT) at the end of last year. These new Bahamian locations were deemed “satellite locations” because they were to offer only handling and refueling compared to the well-established and world-renowned Odyssey Aviation Nassau (MYNN), which is a 24 Hour Full Service FBO with a wealth of amenities and added services. Odyssey Treasure Cay will remain a satellite location for now; but, the steady growth of business and the demand for consistent, reliable, and reputable service merited Odyssey‟s plans for a new facility in Exuma.
The facility will be 2400 square feet and will be located adjacent to the Exuma International Airport‟s existing parking area for arrivals and departures. Odyssey has not leased a specific section of the ramp, but will certainly make use of a 200-foot by 200-foot portion directly in front the FBO Terminal. Amenities will include Bahamas Customs & Immigration, High Speed Wi-Fi internet, WSI weather station, a flight planning room, a pilot‟s lounge, a passenger lounge, HD satellite TV, a coffee, popcorn station, catering coolers, ice machine, dishwashing and laundry capabilities on site.
The facility will be adequately sized and is to be developed using an „Island Outpost‟ theme – open, airy, colorful, incorporating outdoor seating and resting areas, making the most of the surrounding indigenous and natural foliage. Most importantly, it will be functional, and effective, the development of a full service FBO is long overdue in Exuma.
