SAN ANTONIO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (SAT)
Allied Aviation History at SAT:
Allied Aviation began operations at San Antonio International Airport (SAT) in early 1978 when it was awarded contracts to provide fueling services to American and Braniff Airlines. At that time, these two airlines provided a majority of the commercial air transportation. In the years to come, Southwest Airlines increased flight activity at SAT as well. Allied continued to grow and expand with the airport providing jet fuel storage, into-plane fueling services, aircraft cleaning and ground baggage services.
In the years to come and in an effort to support the rapid expansion of the airport, Allied purchased additional storage at the airport to accommodate the airport and airlines needs at SAT. Additionally Allied has constructed a new, environmentally compliant loading rack and ground fuels storage facility.
Future expansion plans include constructing adding additional jet fuel storage the will increase capacity by more that 40%, and state of the art maintenance facility, customs facility, and office area. San Antonio International Airport will also be one of the first airports in the United States with a fuel truck parking facility which will meet and exceed of all the stringent new requirements of the federally mandated Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures plan (SPCC). These decisions were made to ensure adequate fuel supplies were available to support the Airlines expansion plans at SAT, and ensure that the Airport was able to support the ambitious growth plans for the city of San Antonio.
