“This new FBO terminal will help us compete with other world-class facilities that are vying for the lucrative dollars generated by the many corporate fleets pouring into Collin County and the larger Dallas area,” says mayor George Fuller. “Facilities like this will continue to increase the airport's value as an economic driver in our region.”
The new terminal features a modern design and includes amenities such as a conference room, pilot lounge and a passenger waiting area. The FBO facility also offers fuelling and aircraft storage.
“The City of McKinney is committed to making McKinney National airport a premier destination for corporate and general aviation," adds airport director Ken Carley. "With the opening of the new FBO terminal, the city is well on its way to achieving that goal.”
In recent years, the city has invested in airport infrastructure improvements, including runway expansions and the construction of new hangars.
The city council has made maximising the development potential of McKinney National airport one of the six pillars of its City Council Goals and Strategies plan. The city council approved the airport's long-term master plan in 2018, which provides the framework needed to guide future airport development that will allow the airport to keep pace with aviation growth and demand cost-effectively, while also considering potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts.
