Atlantic arrives at Dallas Love Field
Having a major presence at Love Field, one of the top three US business aviation airports, has been a goal of Atlantic for some time. The company is excited about increasing its hangar space for more base customers.
Atlantic has completed its acquisition of Textar and initial renovations.

Atlantic Aviation has expanded in the Lone Star State of Texas with the completion of its acquisition and initial renovations of Textar Aviation, one of the largest FBO properties on Dallas Love Field. This newest acquisition in the Dallas-Fort Worth area gives Atlantic an FBO presence at 15 of the top 20 US business aviation airports, based on business aircraft operations.

The existing lobby, offices, hangars and fuel farm have been rebranded as Atlantic Aviation and, over the past several weeks, have been undergoing extensive investment planning to ensure a one-of-a-kind experience. More upgrades are planned, including construction of a new flagship FBO, along with additional hangar and office space, as Atlantic increases its operational footprint at the airport.

Love Field is one of our nation's top three business aviation airports,” says CEO Lou Pepper. “And having a major presence there has been a goal of our company for some time. We are excited about the amount of space we have and are looking forward to building a first-class facility in the coming years.”

Atlantic's presence at Dallas Love Field now includes approximately 51 acres of aircraft ramp, vehicle parking and fuel farms, along with 697,000 sq ft of hangar and office space, and an additional eight acres of as yet undeveloped land. Increasing hangar space for additional base customers is a primary objective for the additional acreage.

The acquisition is the largest single FBO purchase Atlantic Aviation has made over the past 10 years. The company has been strategically adding to its presence in key destinations over the past several years, including Providenciales International airport in Turks and Caicos earlier this summer.
