The company held a pre-opening celebration at the hangar in August 2019 and has now received its final operating approval. Built to meet growing demand for long-range business jets, the new hangar can accommodate most large aircraft.
The construction is part of Jet Aviation’s efforts to expand and improve its global FBO network of 35 locations. The company is investing heavily to ensure its facilities are designed and equipped to meet all the business aviation needs of its global customers.
Jet Aviation invested more than $25 million in its Teterboro facility, including a complete renovation of its FBO and construction of a new state-of-the-art, 40,000 sq. ft. hangar — equipped with 30-foot doors — that can accommodate aircraft as large as the Gulfstream 650s. The FBO incorporates new standard design elements that will ensure customers have a consistent experience when visiting any of the company’s sites worldwide. Guests and crew can relax and enjoy the site’s 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.
Teterboro is the busiest business aviation airport in the United States, 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 United States,” said David Best, Senior Vice President & 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.”
According to John Langevin, Vice President, Regional Operations, USA East, the state-of-the-art hangar was designed to accommodate the larger ultra-long-range aircraft entering the 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,” Langevin said.
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.
