Business jet operators in the Dallas area now have an additional service provider option with the opening of the newly-built Galaxy FBO at Addison Airport (KADS). As well as being the third FBO at the airport, it is also the third in the growing Galaxy chain, joining facilities at Houston Hobby (KHOU) and Conroe-North Houston Regional airports (KCXO).
The KADS location is on the southeast side of the field, near the end of Runway 33, and features a single-story 13,000-sq-ft terminal with passenger lounge, crew lounge with snooze room and showers, six-seat and 12-seat conference rooms, vehicle garage, crew car, and on-site car rental. Offering the largest uninterrupted ramp at KADS, the complex also includes 109,000 sq ft of hangar space, which can accommodate ultra-long-range business jets.
While the facility will initially operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., with after-hours callout available, it will switch to 24-hour operation starting next month.
“After unexpected construction delays, we're excited to be entering the Dallas-Fort Worth general aviation market with our facility at Addison Airport,” said general manager Jamie Munoz. “With our 'attitude of absolutely' service motto, Galaxy FBO is ready to go beyond travelers' expectations."
The Black Forest Ventures-backed company also just added a new 39,000-sq-ft hangar at its flagship KHOU location, bringing it to 115,000 sq ft of aircraft shelter space there.
