OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Isola Bella Apartments has long been the largest provider of FAA Student housing in Oklahoma City. The government shutdown has created real hardship for many Federal employees, including FAA Student training at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City. FAA Students come from across the United States and overseas to train at the facility. The abrupt shutdown of the government forces students to return home, and then travel back once the shutdown ends.
To help turn this problem into a benefit for the students, Isola Bella has been providing complimentary housing in January for students during the shutdown. As part of its basic plan for serviced residents, Isola Bella provides not only a full apartment home, but also includes dining privileges with hot breakfast and dinner on weekdays and weekend brunches. Isola Bella continues to provide this service to the affected students residing at the property.
“This has been a huge relief. Being able to stay for free while we are not getting a paycheck is an amazing help. This changes the shutdown into a manageable situation that ends up providing us with more time to study because we can stay in place,” says David Coria. Mr. Coria lives in El Paso, Texas and is currently studying to be an air traffic controller, at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City.
Isola Bella has always believed that doing good things for the community brings benefits to all concerned. This is one of the many ways that Isola Bella works with the community in unique ways to help better serve not only residents but the larger community.
“We think of the FAA Students that stay with us as family,” states Kristy Koon, General Manager of Isola Bella. “By providing this service, we are trying to turn a negative into a positive. We know the added time for study with fellow students will increase their success rates. And, that is our number one goal for our FAA Students—their success.”
Isola Bella has recently introduced new luxury apartment homes with 63 Luxxe at Isola Bella. Isola Bella is the only corporate housing in Oklahoma City that offers full hotel services to their residents. In addition to FAA Students, Isola Bella has provided lodging for nearly all of the top employers in the city, as well as the Veterans Administration and other government entities.
Isola Bella is located at 6303 NW 63rd Street in Oklahoma City between MacArthur and Rockwell. For more information, visit www.MyIsolaBella.com.
