Last year the company broke ground on a new 33,000 sq. ft. terminal at Teterboro Airport with an Art Deco-inspired passenger complex that houses passenger facilities, aircraft management, maintenance, acquisition, sales, and charter. Phase two of their expansion will include a new 40,000 sq. ft. aircraft hangar and expanded ramp space.
“We are very pleased to add Meridian Air Charter, the leader in air charter service in metro-New York, to our system.
