Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company, is pleased to announce the opening of a new, state-of-the-art hangar at its New Jersey-based headquarters in Teterboro Airport. Construction on ‘Hangar 12’, as it is commonly known, is now complete and the structure is fully operational.
The new building replaces the original Hangar 12, which was demolished in the summer of 2016. This modern facility includes a 40,000 sq. ft. hangar and a two-story support building, effectively doubling the size of the previous facility. The first floor includes tenant office space as well as a comfortable customer reception area. The second floor is primarily reserved for charter support, including maintenance, quality assurance, and in-flight services. The hangar will serve as a maintenance facility, as well as provide parking accommodations for both managed and transient aircraft.
“The new Hangar 12 enhances Meridian’s footprint at TEB and gives us more space and flexibility for maintenance and allows us to hangar additional aircraft,” said Steve Chandoha, President of Meridian Teterboro. “As we continue to grow and as traffic increases in the busy Northeast corridor, this expansion will help us continue to serve our customers and meet their needs.”
In addition to Hangar 12, Meridian’s complex at Teterboro includes its headquarters facility, which features a 40,000 sq. ft. hangar and a 30,000 sq. ft. Executive Terminal, and another 22,000 sq. ft. hangar with additional office and support space at the south end of the airport.
The new Hangar 12 is designed to handle a variety of large-cabin aircraft, including the Gulfstream G650 and Global 6000. The facility features larger hangar doors for easy access and other features that will enhance service and support capabilities for Meridian customers.
