Million Air Unveils $15M FBO at Houston Hobby

Million Air held an official opening on Friday for its $15 million flagship FBO at Houston Hobby Airport, which will also serve as the company’s headquarters. The 22,000-sq-ft facility more than doubles the size of the former building and features a three-story glass-clad lobby atrium spanned by a “sky bridge” that connects the building’s two wings.

Among the amenities are a pair of 12-seat audio-visual-equipped conference rooms, a pilot lounge with private shower facilities and snooze rooms, a theater room with stadium seating and an 800-sq-ft “Million Air Sky Lounge” on the second floor that opens onto a sweeping balcony overlooking the ramp and airport.

Despite having more than 115,000 sq ft of hangar space, Million Air–like the other service providers at Hobby–is at 100-percent capacity, and company president Roger Woolsey told AIN that he plans to break ground on another 25,000-sq-ft hangar at the facility this summer.

Wilson Air and Atlantic Aviation, which also operate FBOs on the field, have announced their own plans for new facilities to replace their existing locations at Hobby.
