Last October, for the first time in its 64-year existence, the FBO at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport came under private control as Sheltair took over management from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). The Florida-based chain operates 13 other FBOs, including six in New York State alone. It was awarded the JFK location after the PANYNJ issued a request for proposals that attracted more than a half-dozen contenders, according to the agency.
