Partnerships at the Boca Raton Airport

The Office of Economic Development recently partnered with private aviation company, Privaira. The Office’s new City Magazine will be on all of Privaira’s national and international flights. In addition to being on-board, our magazine will also be in the guest lounges of Signature Flight Support and Atlantic Aviation, also based at the Boca Airport. These partnerships give us the opportunity to help spread the good Boca word to the national and international traveler.
