Jet Aviation Opens New FBO at Boston/Bedford
Jet Aviation celebrates the opening of a new hangar and fixed-base operation (FBO) terminal at Hanscom Field in Boston/Bedford with a welcome reception on June 8, 2017. More than 80 guests, including customers and industry members, attended the event.
“With these new facilities and added capabilities at Boston/Bedford, Jet Aviation is truly taking a big step into the future of premium service for our customers and the community here,” says Jet Aviation president, Rob Smith. “The new, state-of-the-art facilities are designed and built to improve safety and efficiency and are also more protective of the environment. We are working with the United States Green Building Council to gain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.”
Smith notes that the new, 40,000-square-foot hangar is capable of handling aircraft up to the Gulfstream G650 and the Global 7000. The two-story FBO terminal has 13,000 square feet dedicated to customer service and another 16,000 square feet of office and shop space. The 92,000-square-foot ramp and apron have been upgraded, while a new entrance roadway, parking, and utilities connecting to the FBO have been installed.
The grand opening featured a welcome reception attended by customers, business and government leaders, airport executives, project developers and members of the aviation industry.
John Langevin, vice president of Jet Aviation FBO Operations in North America, says, “The expanded FBO at Boston/Bedford is among many recent and upcoming improvements to Jet Aviation’s global FBO network. The new FBO at Washington Dulles International Airport opened in April and a grand opening is planned soon for the newly branded Jet Aviation San Juan FBO at Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in Puerto Rico.”
