Jet Aviation celebrated the opening of a new hangar and FBO terminal at Hanscom Field in Boston/Bedford in Massachusetts.
The new 40,000ft² hangar is capable of handling aircraft up the size of the Gulfstream G650 and the Global 7000. The two-story FBO terminal has 13,000ft² of space dedicated to customer service and another 16,000ft² of office and shop space. The 92,000ft² ramp and apron have also been upgraded, while a new entrance roadway, parking, and utilities connecting to the FBO have been installed.
The grand opening featured a welcome reception attended by more than 80 customers, business and government leaders, airport executives, project developers and members of the aviation industry.
Rob Smith, Jet Aviation’s president, said, “With these new facilities and added capabilities at Boston/Bedford, Jet Aviation is truly taking a big step into the future of premium service for our customers and the community here.
“The new state-of-the-art facilities are designed and built to improve safety and efficiency, and are also more protective of the environment. We are working with the US Green Building Council to gain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.”
John Langevin, vice president of Jet Aviation FBO operations, North America, added, “The expanded FBO at Boston/Bedford is among many recent and upcoming improvements to Jet Aviation’s Global FBO Network.
“The new FBO at Washington Dulles International Airport opened in April and a grand opening is planned soon for the newly-branded Jet Aviation San Juan FBO at Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in Puerto Rico.”
