Flexjet Adds Private Terminal at Van Nuys

It’s one of four such facilities that the fractional provider has established exclusively for its customers.

Flexjet has expanded its private terminal network with a facility in the Clay Lacy executive complex at Van Nuys Airport in California. The facility is one of four private terminals that the company has established for its customers. Flexjet also provides private terminals in White Plains, New York; Naples, Florida; and West Palm Beach, Florida. In addition, it is planning to open two more private terminals this year—at Dallas Love Field around the third quarter, and at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey later in the year.

The Van Nuys facility includes a 3,000-square-foot lounge available exclusively to Flexjet clients, the second largest in its terminal network behind the 4,000-square-foot facility in White Plains. Paying homage to local history, the Van Nuys facility displays oversized black-and-white photographs that Flexjet says invoke the romance of old Hollywood, rock ‘n’ roll, business, and the arts, and also pay tribute to the 50-year history of aviation legend Clay Lacy. The location further includes a private gated entrance and parking lot, private ramp-side access, a conference room with Wi-Fi access, a café and espresso bar, and a pilot lounge.

Aircraft utilization at the fractional provider doubled in recent weeks and new customer leads are "off the charts."

“We found the right location at Van Nuys, the right partner with Clay Lacy Aviation, and the right time to address the extraordinary growth in the Southern California region,” said D.J. Hanlon, Flexjet executive vice president of sales. “The new terminal has outstanding features, including a private ramp so that our clients can choose to drive directly to their aircraft or enjoy privacy inside the terminal to wait for their travel companions.”

The terminals are part of an effort for Flexjet to build on its “Red Label” premium-service approach for its customer base with gate agents on-site at each location, as well as provide more of a whole-aircraft-ownership type experience, the company said. It selected locations based on where it has found the greatest customer demand. Flexjet opened its first terminal—in Naples—in February 2016.
