Welcome to Meridian

When your destination is New York City, Teterboro is the most convenient, efficient and time-saving airport, by far. It’s just minutes from Midtown Manhattan, a location that most business jet travelers will appreciate. When time is a factor — and it almost always is — Teterboro is the ideal location.

Ken Forester, Sr. realized this in 1946. He and his brother-in-law, both US Army Air Force pilots during WWII, formed an aviation company that has evolved into today’s Meridian. They built a small hangar at Teterboro shortly after the grass runways were paved and opened Mallard Air Service. Three years later, they moved into a new terminal and hangar, and called it the Executive Aircraft Center for Metropolitan New York. Almost seventy years later, the founder’s son, Ken Forester, Jr., looks across the same runways at the skyline of Manhattan.

That skyline and the private aviation business have evolved and grown over those years, but the original enthusiasm and love for the “Big Apple” and the love of flight has not changed. Ken, Jr. manages what has become a modern, full-service private aviation organization. Meridian offers an award-winning executive terminal and FBO services, global air charter that meets the industry’s highest safety standards, turnkey management services for aircraft owners, and jet maintenance for based and transient aircraft, including a professional detailing team.
