Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company located in Teterboro, NJ (TEB) and Hayward, CA (HWD), proudly exhibited at its second NBAA Regional Forum this year. The Fort Worth Regional was held for the first time at American Aero FTW. The event drew 148 exhibitors, featured 27 aircraft on static display, and attracted more than 1,700 attendees.

Nora Jacob and Lindsay Berkel represented Meridian at the event. Nora is the Customer Service Supervisor at Meridian’s Teterboro Airport location, and her role is to help coordinate and manage the team of CSRs back at the FBO to make sure that we are providing exceptional customer service. Lindsay is one of our professional sales executives who is part of our Meridian Air Charter team. She reaches out to existing customers and prospects to provide competitive charter quotes, and assists our operations team in the trip planning process. Both have said that the forum was very productive and relevant.

“The regionals are great because it gives us a chance to meet our customers face-to-face in a professional environment”, say Nora. “We have many customers from this area who stop at Meridian when they fly into New York. It’s nice to see them in their local area.” Lindsay was also impressed, “I work with many retail and broker customers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, so this forum is a unique opportunity for us to catch up with them in person.”

The final NBAA Regional Forum of 2017 will be held on Thursday, September 7 at Morristown Airport (MMU) in Morristown, NJ. Meridian will also be participating at this one-day event with an exhibit and a team of representatives from every department within the company. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company headquartered at Teterboro Airport, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its footprint with the acquisition of the former AIG hangar at the south end of the airport. The impeccably maintained facility sits on approximately two acres and includes a 22,000 sq. ft. hangar as well as 11,500 sq. ft. of office and support space.

Officially known as Meridian Hangar 107, the building is a welcome addition to the Meridian campus, providing the extra space and resources needed to support its bustling fuel, maintenance, and charter operations. Currently, Meridian’s main facility is located at 485 Industrial Avenue, which includes a 40,000 sq. ft. hangar and a 30,000 sq. ft. terminal.

The company is also constructing a brand new 40,000 sq. ft. hangar with 10,000 sq. ft. of office and support space at the airport. The project is being built up the street at 125 Industrial Avenue and is replacing an outdated 20,000 sq. ft. hangar that was built in 1956. The new facility is expected to be operational by December 2017.

Steve Chandoha, President, was enthusiastic about the new acquisition. “Teterboro Airport is surrounded by development with limited opportunities to expand, so we are extremely grateful to be able to add this well-maintained facility to our network. This state-of-the-art hangar and additional ramp space will afford us greater flexibility with our customers, especially during gridlock periods when our capacity is challenged. Now we have more options to fuel, park, and hangar aircraft, which translates into better service for our customers.”
