Jet Aviation has opened its new 40,000 square foot hangar and renovated FBO in Teterboro, New Jersey.
Built to meet growing demand for long-range business jets, the new hangar can accommodate most large aircraft.
The US$25 million facility includes a complete renovation of its FBO and construction of a new 40,000 square foot hangar — equipped with 30ft doors — that can accommodate aircraft as large as the Gulfstream 650s.
The FBO incorporates many amenities, including dedicated passenger and crew lounges, flight planning room, executive conference rooms, business center, health/fitness spa and on-site U.S. customs services.
The construction is part of Jet Aviation’s efforts to expand and improve its global FBO network of 35 locations.
Teterboro is the busiest business aviation airport in the USA, averaging more than 200 departures per day, and is centrally located just miles from midtown Manhattan. The expanded Teterboro FBO and hangar allow Jet Aviation to continue supporting customers in the locations they most frequent.
“We are committed to growing Jet Aviation’s position as a leading business aviation service provider in the USA,” said David Best, senior vice president and general manager, regional operations USA. “Teterboro’s location in relation to the busy New York metro area market makes it a highly attractive location to many business jet owners and operators. Our expansion makes it easier for customers to access this important market.”
“These improvements at the Teterboro site demonstrate how we at Jet continually strive to meet our customers’ changing requirements to the highest quality and safety standards,” said John Langevin, vice president, regional operations, USA East.
Construction and renovation is under way or pending in the U.S. and Caribbean at six of Jet Aviation’s 13 regional locations. This includes an entirely new FBO and hangar complex that is nearing completion at Van Nuys, California.
Hangar expansions in San Juan, Puerto Rico and West Palm Beach, Florida are ongoing and significant renovations will soon be underway at the Dallas, Texas FBO. Finally, Jet Aviation is preparing to begin construction on its newest FBO in Scottsdale, Arizona, where Jet Aviation recently announced it has acquired a stake in the Scottsdale Jet Center.
