OHIO’s Airport Operations announces new Air Transportation Services for University travel

Published: October 13, 2021 Author: Staff reports

Ohio University Airport Operations announced their partnership with Wheels Up as the travel provider for Air Transportation Services (ATS) flights for faculty and staff traveling for University business.

Under the recently awarded RFP, Wheels Up will provide all aircraft and crew required to perform the services under this contract. 

The Gordon K. Bush Ohio University Airport, which is a public-use airport, will continue to serve the Russ College of Engineering and Technology’s Aviation flight training program and the Avionics Engineering Center research and development programs, as well as the greater community.

The University has retired the King Air 350 aircraft, which was utilized solely for ATS flights, with the intention to sell the aircraft. The retirement and sale of the King Air 350 aircraft reflects ongoing work by University leadership to reduce recurring expenses while prioritizing academic quality and the student experience.

Employees traveling for University business should continue to contact Vicki Smith at smithv1@ohio.edu to coordinate all your ATS needs or book commercially through the Concur website.
