The Northeast Corridor is one of the most important business regions in the United States. Running from Washington, D.C., in the south to Boston in the north, it also includes Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City.
Business aviation has a robust presence here, which is why airport access and support facilities can be extremely expensive. But they don’t have to be. The airports managed by the Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) offer business aviation flight departments, service operations, and dedicated enterprises easy access to the Northeast Corridor at prices that make sense.
DRBA’s airports in Delaware and New Jersey are modern facilities equipped with a full range of fixed-based operators (FBOs) and other aircraft support companies. They offer lots of room for new tenants with ground lease (tenant builds and leases land) or build-to-suit (DRBA builds and leases to tenant) occupancy options. These advantages are enhanced by significant tax benefits and development incentives offered by the states of Delaware and New Jersey.
“By locating at one of our DRBA airports, our tenants enjoy delay-free arrival and departures in uncongested airspace in the Northeast Corridor,” said Stephen Williams, DRBA’s Deputy Executive Director and Director of Airports. “Our locations provide easy access to major cities via Amtrak and ground transportation, allowing for quicker, more enjoyable trips for business aviation passengers.”
At the same time, the DRBA airports’ combination of modern infrastructure, top-level FBOs, and room to build make them a preferred choice for business aviation tenants.
Add the lower costs of operating at a DRBA airport (compared with airports in larger cities) and the choice is clear: For business aviation operators and enterprises, being centrally located in the Northeast Corridor at DRBA airports in Delaware and New Jersey is a smart, sustainable business decision.
