Flexjet, a specialist in subscription-based private aviation, is to open three additional private jet terminals at US airports.
The new terminals will be located at Miami’s Opa-Locka Executive Airport, Montana’s Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport and Arizona’s Scottsdale Airport. The Miami terminal will also serve as the seasonal hub for Flexjet’s South Florida helicopter service, an industry first.
“More people than ever are electing to travel by private aircraft. Expanding our private terminals in top locations ensures a more intimate experience for our owners,” said Flexjet chief experience officer Megan Wolf. “This increase in traffic means the large general aviation Fixed Based Operators (FBOs) in popular departure and arrival points are more hectic than in the past. Flexjet’s Owners-only lounges offer comfort and amenities to ease the transition from the jet to your final destination.”
The Ohio-based company’s expanded private jet terminal network is part of a larger commitment by the company to build out its physical infrastructure. This includes one of private aviation’s largest and most diverse aircraft fleets, its largest controlled maintenance network and a state-of-the-art global operations control centre slated to open in 2023.
Flexjet’s Opa-Locka Executive Airport private jet terminal is expected to be the first of the newly announced terminals to open. Located at the general aviation airport nearest to downtown Miami, the new facility bolsters the support services provided by fixed-base operators at the airport and offers Flexjet Owners a wide range of additional amenities. These include fully stocked bar and café stations, high-speed Wi-Fi access, modern conference rooms and dedicated concierges.
In addition to the upcoming location in Miami and an existing terminal at Naples Airport in Florida, Flexjet offers private jet terminals at high-demand destinations including New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport, Westchester County Airport in White Plains, New York, Dallas Love Field, and Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles, California (ICAO: KVNY).
