Those not familiar with private aviation may wonder: “What happens when a plane arrives at its destination airport?” There is no jet-way, no baggage conveyor belt, no maze of signs and corridors that eventually lead to “escape.”
At Meridian Teterboro, the executive terminal is expertly designed for functionality and aesthetic style. The lobby is a sunny, pleasing space with comfortable seating areas and a flat-screen television. The customer service counter is staffed by experienced professionals, knowledgeable experts who reach out to help arriving clients meet their flight crews or drivers, show the way to the well-appointed restrooms, or assist in a myriad of other ways. In fact, the staff includes concierge service comparable to what you would find at prestigious five-star hotels. Representatives are chosen for their warm personalities and friendly smiles. Quite simply, they are trained to be the best in the world.
Rental cars and limousine services are available on-site. With Manhattan just a few miles away, business, shopping, world-class museums, and Broadway shows are all close by. Of course, business visitors on the run never even need to leave the terminal since we have conference rooms available for meetings and presentations. A smartly appointed business center and wireless internet access throughout the facility leave you well-connected to home and business.
Amenities found in Meridian’s 30,000 sq. ft. terminal include a private movie theater, pool table, sleep rooms, and a gym complete with locker rooms and private showers – all for those rare occasions when travelers are awaiting departure. There are also quiet rest areas, functional work stations and state-of-the-art flight planning facilities.
Teterboro is a TSA-designated Gateway Airport for flights to Reagan Washington National Airport and Meridian is approved by the FAA as a point of departure. A private room is provided for baggage and passenger screening, and our security staff works closely with the TSA to make the screening process quick, discreet, and seamless.
It goes without saying that safety on the flight line is paramount. To that end, all Meridian line technicians receive initial and recurrent professional training through the National Air Transportation Association’s Safety First curriculum – the industry recognized standard for excellence. Meridian’s staff also incorporates an on-site security department for added safety and control of client privacy.
