Bahamas has announced that it will partner with two
FBOs in the United States at Detroit’s Willow Run
Airport (KYIP) and Orlando’s Kissimmee Gateway
Airport (KISM) owned by the Quantem FBO Group, LLC,
an FBO acquisition and aviation consulting company.
Both U.S. FBOs will
operate under the Odyssey Aviation brand forming an
international relationship and network of seven FBOs
The decision to
partner was a familiar one for
CEO of Odyssey Aviation Bahamas, and
CEO of Quantem FBO Group, LLC and the new Odyssey
Aviation United States. The two business owners
created the Odyssey Aviation brand and partnership
together in 2008 fresh out of each of their decade
long affiliations with Million Air.
At the time, Ken
owned seven FBOs in the U.S. and Steven, as a
shareholder, operated the Nassau, Bahamas location.
They shared a vision to create an organization with
a business model designed to partner with the
customer while focusing on service excellence and
safety. Odyssey Aviation’s tagline “Your Flight
Service Partner”, emphasizes this ideal. In 2011,
Ken sold the seven U.S. locations but quickly
realized that he did not want to retire. With
Quantem’s acquisition of two new FBOs in 2016 and
the goal for continued growth, the Odyssey Aviation
partnership was revitalized.
“I am looking
forward to once again serving the general aviation
community with our two FBOs. And I am excited about
the future. My Quantem team and I plan to quickly
expand the Odyssey Aviation U.S. network as
opportunities present themselves,” said Ken. “I am
proud of how well my Bahamas team has developed the
Odyssey brand over the last six years and brought
global recognition to our name. Joining forces again
with the U.S. FBOs reinforces a strong network and
will leverage the skills and fortes of both our
companies,” said Steven.
