HARTSFIELD JACKSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (ATL)
Allied Aviation History at ATL:
Allied Aviation was originally awarded the contract in 1980 to operate and maintain what at the time was the Eastern Airlines Fuel Farm. The facility consisted of 9 above ground storage tanks that supplied fuel through an underground hydrant system to several concourses at the airport. Allied had an active role in the development of the storage facility and the associated underground distribution system.
After Eastern Airlines ceased operations, the City of Atlanta assumed the responsibility of the fuel system. Allied continued to manage and operate the fuel system until 1997 when the City decided in a master plan to place these services out for bid. Allied was not awarded the contract at that time.
In 2003, the City of Atlanta once again offered issued a request for proposal to manage these facilities and Allied was the successful bidder. Since 2006, Allied has performed maintenance and operation of both the City jet fuel storage facility and the North Cargo jet fuel storage facility. Allied is actively looking to expand its business at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
