Sheltair opens hangar in Savannah


Sheltair’s Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport FBO in Georgia, USA has completed construction of their new US$5.6 million 31,575 square foot hangar.

The hangar offers 28ft tail height doors and a 227ft clear span opening and is designed to accommodate aircraft as large as the Global 7500 and Gulfstream 650.

Complemented by its award-winning services, Sheltair’s Savannah FBO includes a 6,500 square foot executive terminal that provides a broad range of amenities for passengers and flight crews along with three additional hangars with office space totally approximately 100,000 square feet.

“Savannah continues to be a favored destination for business and hospitality as evidenced by the fact that its airport is one of the busiest in the state of Georgia,” said Lisa Holland, Sheltair’s president. “Our latest investment reflects our commitment to meeting Savannah’s aviation needs, not just for today, but for years to come.”

Owned by the City of Savannah and managed by the Savannah Airport Commission, the airport is just miles away from one of the nation’s most popular golfing destinations,  beaches and the Savannah Historic District which enjoys a worldwide reputation for southern hospitality.

“We have been fortunate to have Sheltair as a valued business partner for the past 15 years. The addition of this state-of-the-art hangar reflects Sheltair’s confidence in our Airport and the market we serve” said Gregory Kelly, executive director of the Savannah Airport Commission. “We continually work to promote business and general aviation as a critical part of our overall business plan, so we are genuinely excited about Sheltair’s continued growth and investment as evidenced by this latest hangar.”

Sheltair operates 18 premier FBOs throughout Colorado, Florida, Georgia, and New York which offer services including fueling, ground handling, hangar and office leasing, and turn-key design/build of aviation properties.
