NetJets broke ground yesterday on a maintenance and customer facility in Scottsdale, Arizona, one of the top destinations for the company’s fractional aircraft shareowners. The “exclusive-use” facility—expected to open in first-quarter 2024—will include a private boarding lounge and ramp space, as well as serve as one of the company’s more than 10 maintenance hubs that support NetJets’s fleet of more than 850 business jets.
At 42,000 sq ft, the facility includes 30,000 sq ft of hangar space and 12,000 sq ft for offices and a passenger terminal. Along with the facility, NetJets expects to create more than 200 jobs in Scottsdale.
“Our ongoing investment in expanding our real estate portfolio will continue to improve our industry-leading service, owner experience, and maintenance abilities,” said NetJets administrative services executive v-p Brad Ferrell. “We are excited to introduce our first from-the-ground-up NetJets Maintenance Service Hub site as a part of this larger investment in dedicated facilities across the globe.”
As part of its maintenance operations, NetJets invests more than $63 million annually in aircraft spare parts, including the 753,000 it currently has on hand.
