PRINCE GEORGE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (YXS)
Allied Aviation History at YXS:
Allied Aviation, operating as Airconsol Aviation Services, ULC, commenced services at the Prince George International Airport on October 19, 2007 proving into-plane fueling and ground services. In 2013, the Company was awarded a contract with JETMARK International Fuel Services to manage the common use fuel farm. Along with being the service provider for Jetmark, Airconsol provides into-plane fuelling services, fixed base operations, ground handling and hangar facilities.
The Prince George Airport is located in Northern British Columbia and on the great circle route between major Asian and North American airports. Due to Prince George’s strategic location, runway 15/33 was expanded to 11,450 feet to attract cargo aircraft.
Prince George offers an alternative to existing cargo and tech stop airports that struggle with safety, weather and congestion issues. As the airport develops this market, Airconsol Aviation Services, ULC has acquired equipment necessary to handle wide body activity operating the great circle route.
The new tank farm facility completed in 2013 has a total storage capacity of 600,000 liters and can be expanded as necessary based on customer demand. Two fuel tankers with a combined volume of 65,000 liters currently meet customer requirements and additional equipment is planned as activity increases.
