Texaco International Aviation and fixed-base operator (FBO) Atlantic Aviation have opened the first general-aviation fuelling unit at Arturo Michelena Airport in Carabobo, Venzuela. The partnership will initially provide fuel and general ground support for corporate and commercial aircraft, with other FBO services expected to be offered by the end of 1999. These will include provision of hangar and ramp space, maintenance support, weather monitoring and ground transportation. The international and domestic airport is increasingly being used for business aviation.
