Swiss-based aviation company Jet Aviation has completed the building of a new 40,000ft² hangar at its fixed-base operator (FBO) in Bozeman, Montana, bringing the overall hangar capacity to over 300,000ft².
According to Jet Aviation, the new hangar, which replaces a previous 10,000ft² hangar, has a 30ft door opening and can accommodate big cabin business jets like the Gulfstream 700.
The hangar features include heated asphalt outside the hangar doors and on all pathways to provide easy arrival and exit in all weather conditions, more customer parking and improved access to the tarmac.
This new venture will allow Jet Aviation to expand its services, which currently span 50 countries across the world, including Australia, the US and Germany.
David Best, Jet Aviation’s senior VP of regional operations and general manager of the Americas, emphasised how this new hangar will provide a better customer experience: “Bozeman is a key destination in our US network and the opening of this new hangar is the latest step in our commitment to continuing to provide our customers with an effortless experience across the region and beyond.
“We are seeing high demand for hangar space, particularly for newer and larger business jets and as we continue to grow and invest in our network, we are focused on providing our customers with the services and facilities they need, where they need them.”
Following the acquisition of the FBO from Arlin’s Aircraft Services in 2020, Bozeman joined the Jet Aviation network and Jet Aviation has subsequently invested in an FBO re-model, new fuel trucks and extra ground support equipment.
Richard Layson, VP of FBO operations in the Americas, highlighted the strategic location of Bozeman: “As the gateway to Yellowstone National Park, the Yellowstone Club and the Big Sky Resort area, Bozeman is Montana’s busiest airport and a key destination for many of our customers.
“This latest development ensures that we are able to provide our customers in Bozeman with the seamless service they expect from our destinations.”
