This time of year, Salt Lake City is bustling with ski bunnies, boarders and après skiers alike, who come to traverse down some of the finest slopes in the world. Whether you’re backcountry hiking to access hidden powder gems, or gliding down the green beginner trails, when it gets cold outside, Salt Lake City becomes the hot destination. And while TAC Air Salt Lake City (TAC Air SLC) can’t control the weather conditions on the nearby mountains, the Phillips 66 branded FBO can control the ice, with top-notch aircraft de-icing capabilities.
Servicing Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC), Phillips 66 branded TAC Air SLC stands ready, in all weather conditions, to welcome travelers to Utah’s high-elevation capital. The premier gateway to the rocky region prides itself on providing five-star customer service, comfortable and modern FBO facilities, plentiful hangar space, award-winning ground services, quick turns, and the most competitive prices on Phillips 66 Aviation fuel.
Keeping up With the Numbers, and The Times
In addition to seasonal tourists, Salt Lake City is ranked by Forbes magazine as the 12th Fastest-Growing City in America. This can largely be attributed to the growing technology market, also ranked by Forbes as the sixth-best city for tech jobs.
To keep up with the growth, TAC Air SLC recently refurbished more than 50,000 square feet of existing hangar space and has begun construction on a 25,000 square-foot hangar that will be completed in Summer 2016. Other upgrades include a floor to ceiling updated lobby interior, including a modernized conference space. And for added convenience of pilots and travelers, the FBO has also added Wi-Fi capabilities to the aircraft ramp.
Suiting up for Sundance
The Sundance Film Festival, Utah’s largest annual international event, is always a major event for TAC AIR SLS. The festival brings together A-list celebrities and Indie breakout actors to screen movies, participate on panels, enjoy art installations, theatrical performances and music events. TAC Air SLC encompasses the spirit of Sundance by providing branded Phillips 66/TAC Air/Sundance winter weather gear, including hats and gloves to its customers. This year, a photo station has been set up, allowing travelers to snap keepsake pictures at the FBO, and share with their friends and followers on social media, especially when celebrities are at hand.
Last year, the festival attracted more than 30,000 out-of-state visitors and nearly 4,000 international visitors from 30 countries. Phillips 66 Aviation branded FBO TAC Air SLC welcomed many of these tourists with open arms to its location at Salt Lake City International Airport. According to Mike McCarty, TAC Air SLC general manager, TAC Air SLC sees a considerable spike in activity during the festival. The excitement among the staff is palpable as the FBO ramps up and gathers the TAC Air team to handle the increased traffic.
“The fact that we can pull line service and customer service representatives from any of our other 13 FBO locations during a large event like this speaks volumes to the strength of our network,” said Neely McMains, marketing coordinator for TAC Air. “Our FBOs operate as seamlessly as possible, providing the best service on all levels, no matter where the location. This can be attributed to our company-wide training program that arms all staff, in all places, with the best resources to provide the best service to our customers.”
TAC Air has been recognized numerous times over the years for providing the best line service and best value of any FBO chain. It currently employs over 400 associates at its 14 nationwide locations.
