Southern California’s Premier FBO Luxivair SBD sees continued growth, invests in clean air technology

Luxivair SBD, Southern California’s premier FBO, is located at San Bernardino International Airport (SBD), which is well situated to Los Angeles, Palm Springs and other top destinations in the Southern California region. A highly desirable alternative to the congested and costly FBOs elsewhere in the area, Luxivair SBD delivers a five-star experience to its customers. Celebrating Southern California’s sunny skies, an airy two-story atrium lobby, travertine floors, floor-to- ceiling glass windows and sweeping views of the San Bernardino Mountains welcome arrivals. The expansive facility’s amenities include an advanced conference room, flight planning room, crew lounge, exercise room and a movie theater with stadium seating. The full-service business complex provides total ground support, concierge professionals, brand-new courtesy vehicles, car rentals and hotel shuttles.
Executive travelers will appreciate being able to conduct meetings in Luxivair SBD’s stunning conference room complemented by a well-appointed business center. With courtesy refreshments and a supportive staff, executives will be certain to create a positive impression with their business associates.

With a specific focus on private, corporate and diplomatic jet transit, Luxivair SBD enables international flights to ease into Southern California through uncongested airspace, bypassing traditional border airports to land directly at our location by filing an Overflight Exemption with US Customs.

Onsite, U.S. Customs officers expedite immigration and customs procedures for our clients 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure passengers, crew and cargo spend minimal time clearing immigration and customs. An added advantage is that any size aircraft can land at the San Bernardino International Airport.

Continuing onward? Luxivair SBD offers competitive pricing on a full range of aircraft services and a skilled ground support staff to ensure a quick turnaround.

The multiple MRO businesses at San Bernardino International Airport maintain the performance and attractiveness of aircraft, improve fleet value and productivity and meet strict federal regulations while minimizing aircraft downtime.

At Luxivair SBD Jet A and Avgas fuel are always competitively priced and there is never a facility fee. Luxivair SBD continues to demonstrate positive momentum as a result of its commitment to providing customers with exceptional service while reducing its carbon footprint. The FBO, which has seen double-digit growth in ramp activity, recently includes electric-powered aircraft tugs, Tier-4 ground support equipment, a propane-powered forklift and new Tier-4 10,000-gallon fuel trucks.

Luxivair SBD has recently expanded its luxury fleet to offer the zero-emission Toyota Mirai through a partnership with StratosShare – the first hydrogen fuel cell rental service of its kind in California.

“We wanted to provide our customers with an alternative to traditional rental cars,” says Wendy Bechtel, Luxivair SBD’s manager. “Like Luxivair SBD, the Mirai is futuristic, environmentally responsible and exclusive.”

Throughout the state of California there are only about 6,000 Toyota Mirai. San Bernardino added zero- and low-emissions vehicles and ground support equipment.

“FBO customers have become accustomed to the exceptional service and value offered by Luxivair SBD. During their next visit to Southern California they can have complete confidence knowing that their FBO of choice is committed to sustainable business practices,” says Mark Gibbs, Director of Aviation for San Bernardino International Airport.

“The secret of Luxivair SBD is out – a combination of excellent service, amazing facilities, unbeatable prices and a solid commitment to our future growth.”

Recently acquired ground support equipment, which is compliant with stringent emission standards, International Airport is the first airport in the state to offer pilots and flight crews access to these new vehicles.

When combining Luxivair SBD’s full complement of amenities and services with the Airport’s 10,000-foot runway rated for an A-380 at 1,300,000 pounds, a Category-1 Precision Approach to Runway 6, PAPI, and AWOS weather reporting, Luxivair SBD should be your FBO for travel to Southern California.
