Leading private jet operator NetJets is expanding its network of VIP private terminals to Scottsdale, Arizona
Scottsdale, ranked as the 10th busiest private jet airport in the U.S. last year, will see NetJets build its dedicated private terminal.
The world’s largest private jet operator says securing ramp space will limit traffic congestion and fuel delays and improve on-time performance.
“At NetJets, our priority is to provide owners with safe, exceptional, and seamless experiences,” says Brad Ferrell, NetJets’ Executive Vice President, Administrative Services.
He continues, “Our ongoing investment in expanding our real estate portfolio will continue to improve our industry-leading service, owner experience, and maintenance abilities. We are excited to introduce our first from-the-ground-up NetJets Maintenance Service Hub site as a part of this larger investment in dedicated facilities across the globe.”
NetJets already has its own lounges at busy airports, including Teterboro, White Plains, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Palm Beach. It previously said it would add similar facilities in Denver and San Jose, California.
The expansion of the hubs allows NetJets to proactively service and stock their fleet.
Aircraft typically cycle through a hub every three to four days.
The Scottsdale facility will house an inventory of aircraft parts to meet the specific needs of each jet in the fleet, contributing to the 753,000 parts NetJets already has on hand across the network.
Speaking earlier this month at Corporate Jet Investor, NetJets President Patrick Gallagher told Private Jet Comparisons that the company is now operating at or above pre-2020 performance metrics.
He said instead of joining the merger frenzy, the unit of Berkshire Hathaway is focused on building more of its own infrastructure.
