Todd Engel, general manager of Freeman Jet Centre, expressed his enthusiasm for the reopening: “We are excited to unveil our improved runway and once again welcome guests to KPUB with smooth access and first-class amenities, demonstrating our continuous dedication to safety, service and customer satisfaction.

“Our team looks forward to greeting an influx in traffic with the top-notch aviation services our customers have come to expect at Freeman Jet Centre, all at competitive rates.”

To celebrate the runway opening, Freeman Jet Centre offers pilots double AVTRIP Points through July 31, 2024.
