GAS & DIESEL
Airport Plazas looks to offer only leading brands of gas such as Shell, Exxon, Mobil, and Sunoco. The company selects brands based upon the most popular in any given market. This flexibility of choice in brands is an advantage when operating nationally.
E85 is the term for motor fuel blends of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. E85 is produced domestically and is an alternative fuel as defined by the U.S. Department of Energy. Besides its superior performance characteristics, ethanol burns cleaner than gasoline and it is completely renewable.
CNG (Compressed Natural Gas)
Compressed Natural Gas or CNG as it is more commonly referred to, is one of the nation's most abundant energy resources. One of the companies leading the charge for the adoption of CNG has been Clean Energy. They are the nation's largest supplier of CNG to the transportation market. Airport Plazas works with Clean Energy for all of its sites at airports.
The Convenience Store is one of the most important parts of the development as it is the central part of convenience for customers. Customers tend to be more inclined to visit a branded operation like 7-Eleven, or a Circle K because they are familiar and know what to expect from a store brand that is nationwide, Airport Plazas analyzes each market to determine who the dominant brand is and incorporate that brand into its development. Be it a cup of coffee, a lottery ticket or a gallon of milk, customers are looking for a quick and convenient place to get what they want 24-hours a day.
It is the belief of Airport Plazas that people will visit a restaurant once or twice a week. When dining with friends and colleagues, the challenge seems to be the agreement of where to go that makes everyone happy. As a result of its research, the approach of Airport Plazas is to offer a food court environment. The food court concept insures variety, which in turn provides longevity for the food court itself. In addition to the usual national brands such as Burger King and Wendy’s, Airport Plazas seeks to include local favorites, and ethnic food options that will be more in tune with the local customer base. Offering a variety of food options will make the Airport Plazas site an attractive place for people to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while on a break from work or waiting to board a flight.
Whether picking up a VIP or a loved one people like to show up with a clean car. Nearly all Airport Plazas locations have a car wash facility. In certain locations the company has installed RFID readers that make the car wash experience similar to using E-Z Pass at a toll. Simply drive in and the tag knows the customer and their preferred choice of wash. The use of the tag adds convenience for the customer.
Airport Plazas offers free parking to all automobile patrons. In certain sites, Airport Plazas has been asked to develop parking lots specifically designed for trucks. Due to increased costs for development of these sites, there are often charges associated with the truck parking. There are a number of security conditions that Airport Plazas must undertake in order to insure a safe environment. The Known Shipper database provides a systematic approach to assess risk and determine the legitimacy of shippers. Passenger Air Carriers and Indirect Air Carriers must comply with a broad range of specific security requirements to qualify their clients as Known Shippers. As an operator of an airport facility, Airport Plazas would comply with the TSA and airport guidelines for security at the specified airport. This includes the inspection of trucks, maintaining a secure perimeter to the truck parking area, and using a combination of lighting and surveillance cameras.

They provide convenience and accessibility for the growing number of people using bitcoin for everyday transactions. Coinsource ATMs are the fastest and most secure way to turn your bitcoin into cash, and your cash into bitcoin.
LIGHT AUTO REPAIR
Similar to dry cleaning, car maintenance is one of those necessary mundane errands that we rarely have the time for. Airport staff and business travelers alike can drop their car off for the day, or for the duration of their trip, and have routine maintenance work performed, including an oil change and multi-point vehicle inspection. In markets where state inspection is required, Airport Plazas will be licensed to perform such a service. Regular car care is very important. The majority of car breakdowns could be prevented with regular car care. Continual car maintenance will also increase your gas mileage. Simply taking a vehicle in for maintenance can greatly improve gas mileage and save on repair bills down the road.
