Tupelo airport looking for new fixed base operator

(AP) - Officials at the Tupelo Regional Airport say they are looking for a private company to run the operations of its fixed base operator.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the airport is asking for proposals for a private firm to take over staffing of Tupelo Aviation Unlimited. The airport would retain the assets of the fixed base operator.

With the addition of Universal Asset Management and Airline Maintenance Service, airport executive director Josh Abramson says new general aviation policies have helped the airport see "large growth" in 2011.
