Jet Aviation has opened a new 40,000 square foot hangar and renovated FBO in Teterboro, New Jersey.
The company 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.
Jet Aviation invested more than $25 million in its Teterboro facility, including a complete renovation of its FBO and construction of a new hangar — equipped with 30-foot doors — that can accommodate aircraft as large as the Gulfstream 650s.
The FBO incorporates new standard design elements that is designed to ensure customers have a consistent experience when visiting any of the company’s sites. Tereboro’s facility now has dedicated passenger and crew lounges, flight planning room, executive conference rooms, business centre, spa and on-site US customs services.
Teterboro is the busiest business aviation airport in the US, averaging more than 200 departures per day, and is located just miles from midtown Manhattan.
David Best, senior vice president and general manager for regional operations USA, said: “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.”
John Langevin, vice president for regional operations, USA East, said: “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.”
