Palm Beach International Airport Recognition

Flight Services & Systems Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) team was recently recognized for their professionalism and quick actions. An incident took place this week where a flight had to divert but there was no overnight staff available at Miami International Airport (MIA) for it to land safely. Ray Sauseda from Frontier Airlines had to quickly decide the best option for this divert to get the staff it needed. Ray got in contact with our general manager at PBI, Tracy Doyle, and luckily there was an F9 flight delayed en route to PBI. This delayed flight allowed the PBI team to receive the divert and get the customer the medical attention she needed. We appreciate the communication and quick actions our team used at Palm Beach International Airport!

Flight Services & Systems is pro-vaccine and highly encourages our current employees to be vaccinated. We are keeping our employees safe by staying up-to-date on each location's Covid-19 vaccination status. All new employees will be required to have the Covid-19 vaccine upon employment with FSS.
