NetJets is investing in two large-scale flagship US west coast hangars at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International airport in California and Centennial airport in the Denver-Aurora metropolitan area. In addition to housing the NetJets fleets, these hangars will also offer premier services to NetJets owners and to customers of NetJets subsidiary Executive Jet Management.
“We are proud to share that these hangars include service hubs and operations centres to continue our growth across the important west coast market,” says Patrick Gallagher, president of NetJets sales, marketing and service. “This is an exciting opportunity to further establish San Jose and Denver as leading business aviation gateways and to expand our ability to service our west coast owners. We look to these two markets to open the doors on the west coast as our expansion in additional cities is imminent.”
NetJets operates more than 313,000 flights per year, and one in five departs from one of its designated service hubs. Earmarked based on their local capabilities and flight activity, service hubs are designed to remove barriers that disrupt on-time departures.
At the northwest end of Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International, NetJets will occupy approximately 35,000 sq ft of the existing hangar that includes a 60 ft door built for aircraft as large as the Boeing 767, with capacity to hold up to seven Latitudes, six Longitudes or four Global 6000s.
