Flexjet to open private terminal at Dallas Love Field Airport

Flexjet is to relocate of its Dallas operations to the Braniff Centre, a 26-acre redevelopment project at Dallas Love Field Airport (KDAL) in Texas.

Flexjet’s new private terminal, 60,000ft² (5,574m²) maintenance hangar, office space and covered parking garage, will stand alongside the TAC Air FBO, retail shops, restaurants, offices, an auto dealer showroom, entertainment venues and hospitality facilities. Renovations are underway and are expected to be completed by summer 2019.

Employees will occupy 32,000ft² (2,972m²) of office space in November 2018, while the company’s headquarters will remain in Cleveland, Ohio.

Michael Silvestro, CEO at Flexjet, added, “At our core, we are an aviation company, and the ability to tie a portion of our future to somewhere that has such historical significance in aviation is a perfect fit for us.

“It not only gives us a significant presence at a key airport, it also brings our entire Dallas team together in what will become one of our flagship regional facilities.”

In partnership with the Texas Historical Commission, the existing DalFort Aerospace building, originally known as the Braniff Airlines Operations and Maintenance Base, will be transformed into more than 200,000ft² (18,580m²) of hangar space and aviation support facilities.

The private terminal exclusive to Flexjet Owners is slated to open in June 2019 and will be positioned alongside the new TAC Air FBO, one of the anchors of the Braniff Centre.

Greg Arnold, chairman and CEO of Dallas-based TAC (The Arnold Companies) and TAC Air, commented, “We are excited to welcome Flexjet to the Braniff Centre. Together, our two terminals will create the newest and most historic gateway of business aviation on Dallas Love Field.”
