Chairman and chief executive officer Tal Keinan says: “Chicago Executive airport is among the best-managed business aviation airports in the United States, serving one of the country's top business aviation markets. Sky Harbour is honoured to be joining the PWK community and is committed to maximising the long-term benefits of a Sky Harbour campus to Prospect Heights, Wheeling, Cook County and the Greater Chicago area."
The Sky Harbour campus, to be developed on approximately 25 acres, is expected to create or sustain hundreds of local jobs and generate approximately $550 million in economic benefits. The campus will offer 'the best home base in business aviation' to house approximately 20 corporate and privately-owned business jets in private hangars, with line-services dedicated exclusively to based tenants, offering 'the shortest time to wheels-up in business aviation'.
Court Harris, chairman of the Chicago Executive airport board, says: “Sky Harbour brings unique and differentiated benefits to PWK, to the communities of Prospect Heights and Wheeling, and to the Chicago area in general. We appreciate the spirit of partnership and professionalism that the team has brought to this relationship. We value the company's track record of delivering on its commitments and look forward to working together to enhance PWK's value, both to the local community and to the business aviation community.”
The Chicago Executive airport campus joins Sky Harbour campuses now operating at Houston's Sugar Land Regional airport (SGR) in Texas, Nashville International airport (BNA) in Tennessee and Miami Opa-Locka Executive airport (OPF) in Florida; campuses in development at Denver Centennial airport (APA) in Colorado, Phoenix Deer Valley airport (DVT) in Arizona and Dallas's Addison airport (ADS) in Texas.
