Sky Harbour Group Corporation has announced the execution of a lease agreement with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) for the development of a Sky Harbour home base campus at Dulles International airport, Greater Washington DC's international gateway airport.

The Sky Harbour campus, to be developed on approximately 18 acres, is expected to create or sustain hundreds of local jobs and generate significant economic benefits to northern Virginia. The campus will offer “the best home base in business aviation” to house Washington, DC area's top corporate and privately-owned business jets in state-of-the art hangars, with line services dedicated exclusively to based tenants, offering “the shortest time to wheels-up in business aviation.”

Dulles International Airport joins Sky Harbour campus locations now operating at Houston's Sugar Land Regional Airport (SGR), Nashville International Airport (BNA), Miami Opa-Locka Executive Airport (OPF) and San Jose Mineta Airport (SJC); and campuses in development at Denver Centennial Airport (APA), Phoenix Deer Valley Airport (DVT), Dallas Addison Airport (ADS), Chicago Executive Airport (PWK), Bradley International Airport (BDL), Hudson Valley Regional Airport (POU), Orlando Executive Airport (ORL) and Stewart International Airport (SWF); with additional campuses soon to be announced.

Richard Golinowski, MWAA vice president and Dulles airport manager comments: “As growth surges through our region, so does the demand for aeronautical support facilities. Our partnership with Sky Harbour symbolises the airport authority's commitment to ensuring IAD remains at the forefront of meeting current and future demand for aeronautical services in the Washington area.”

Tal Keinan, Sky Harbour's chairman and chief executive officer, adds: “Dulles International airport is business aviation's gateway to our nation's capital and a Sky Harbour national tier-1 airport. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with MWAA and eager to deliver on our commitment to the airport, to the Greater DC business aviation community and to the citizens of Loudon County and northern Virginia. The Sky Harbour campus at Dulles will be another best-in-class facility with outstanding operational leadership driving uncompromising standards for business aviation safety and efficiency.”

Sky Harbour's facility will include hangar space to house the latest business aircraft of all sizes, adjacent office space, critical operational infrastructure and significant ramp and automobile parking.

Sky Harbour Group Corporation has also announced that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has voted to authorise the execution of a lease agreement for the development of a Sky Harbour campus at Stewart International airport (SWF), serving the New York metropolitan area. Sky Harbour expects the lease to be fully executed in the coming months.
