This past week, Meridian was proud to host the January meeting of  the Alameda County Mayors’ Conference (ACMC). The 3-hour event was a big success for the 50 people in attendance. Among the attendees were distinguished Mayors, City Managers, and City Council Members, all of whom were extremely excited about the ambiance that the terminal and hanger provided. In fact, the large American flag draped on the back wall was so inspiring, that it was used for the Pledge of Allegiance to kick off the meeting.
The ACMC was created in 1954 to, “develop and maintain a means of cooperative effort and understanding in matters of mutual interests and concern” and to, “assemble information helpful in the consideration of problems particular to the various areas of the county”. The Membership of this prestigious conference consists of the Mayors of the incorporated cities including Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Dublin, Emeryville, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Newark, Oakland, Piedmont, Pleasanton, San Leandro, and Union City. In addition to the Mayors, Officers are elected annually to serve a one-year term.

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company headquartered at Teterboro Airport, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its footprint with the acquisition of the former AIG hangar at the south end of the airport. The impeccably maintained facility sits on approximately two acres and includes a 22,000 sq. ft. hangar as well as 11,500 sq. ft. of office and support space.
Officially known as Meridian Hangar 107, the building is a welcome addition to the Meridian campus, providing the extra space and resources needed to support its bustling fuel, maintenance, and charter operations. Currently, Meridian’s main facility is located at 485 Industrial Avenue, which includes a 40,000 sq. ft. hangar and a 30,000 sq. ft. terminal.
The company is also constructing a brand new 40,000 sq. ft. hangar with 10,000 sq. ft. of office and support space at the airport. The project is being built up the street at 125 Industrial Avenue and is replacing an outdated 20,000 sq. ft. hangar that was built in 1956. The new facility is expected to be operational by December 2017.
Steve Chandoha, President, was enthusiastic about the new acquisition. “Teterboro Airport is surrounded by development with limited opportunities to expand, so we are extremely grateful to be able to add this well-maintained facility to our network. This state-of-the-art hangar and additional ramp space will afford us greater flexibility with our customers, especially during gridlock periods when our capacity is challenged. Now we have more options to fuel, park, and hangar aircraft, which translates into better service for our customers.”
