When Fariz Turkmani arrived at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City in 1979, he spoke no English, had no change in his pocket to call a friend, and didn’t even know how to dial an American telephone number.

But the kindness of strangers made the difference.

“I put a dollar in my hand and showed people like I had to break it,” recalled Turkmani of that moment. “A janitor at the airport saw me and gave me the change and walked me to the phone.”

Today, Turkmani’s business revolves around taking people to the airport.

Tess Limousine & Airport Services Inc., with an office on the second floor of the Overland Park Marriott hotel, has a 15-vehicle fleet and eight employees who transport customers across the metropolitan area. The fleet includes Lincoln Town Cars, several stretch limousines, small passenger buses and a new Mercedes bus.
