“[New billionaires in fast-growing countries] have to buy longer-range airplanes. If you’re flying from Mongolia to Nigeria, it’s either a three-day journey flying commercial or a nine-hour flight on your jet.”
FBOs Join New Partnership
Seven FBOs have left the Million Air franchise system and switched to a new brand name, Odyssey Aviation, having joined in a marketing partnership with the Odyssey Aviation Bahamas FBO at Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau. Odyssey Bahamas also used to be a Million Air franchisee. The seven former Million Air FBOs are owned by Ken Allison, who joined the Million Air franchise system in 1992 with his first FBO at Louisiana's New Orleans Lakefront Airport. Allison's other newly branded Odyssey FBOs are in Asheville, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Chicago; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; and Lafayette, La.
