Do you dream of arriving at your dream destination discreetly without the traffic and crowds of a standard airport? Teterboro International Airport, just 12 miles from downtown Manhattan, can help with that. Teterboro Airport offers private jet facilities.

A general aviation airport, Teterboro is the only private airport in the New York area. To get from Teterboro airport to midtown Manhattan, it only takes about 30 minutes. By filtering through some of the slower, smaller private jets from NYC airport giants like Newark, La Guardia, and JFK, Teterboro helps reduce air congestion. 

No commercial airlines operate within Teterboro, but if you’re a private jet charter, passenger, or owner, you’re going to be interested in the FBOs (Fixed-Base Operators) that can service you and your jet in Teterboro Airport. Whether you’re flying a Gulfstream, King Air, or Cessna, these FBOs can support you with a wide range of services.

Today we’ll cover the four FBOs at Teterboro, the aircraft services they offer, and why Southern Air Custom Interiors shines when it comes to aircraft interiors!

How Can Teterboro Airport Service Your Jet?

Teterboro Airport Services 

As mentioned above, Teterboro Airport has four aircraft management companies offering FBOs that can service your jet:

  • Atlantic Aviation
  • Jet Aviation
  • Signature Flight Support (SNS)
  • Meridian Teterboro

Each FBO provides a wide range of aircraft services, from jet maintenance and deicing, to concierge and interiors. 

Atlantic Aviation

Atlantic Aviation was started in 1927 by Henry Belin Du Pont to provide business aviation services. The company changed hands and locations over the years, and established an FBO at Teterboro Airport in the early 1950’s. Here are the services and amenities Atlantic Aviation offers within Teterboro Airport:

  • Type I and IV deicing
  • Heated Hangar
  • Pilot’s Lounge
  • Concierge
  • Concierge

Reviews applaud Atlantic Aviation’s dedication to customer service and deicing services, but this FBO doesn’t provide aircraft maintenance services

While Meridian doesn’t offer aircraft maintenance services related to mechanics or structure, they do offer deicing and detailing, as well as other services:

  • Interior and Exterior Detailing

How Does Teterboro’s Airport Private Jet Maintenance and Interior Design Work?

What Type of Interior Design Does Teterboro Airport Offer?

Only two out of the four FBOs offer any services related to interiors. Meridian and Signature Flight Support offer detailing, in which their technicians clean up both the inside and outside of the plane.

However, only Signature Flight Support’s South FBO location offers aircraft interior refurbishment, in which you can change your interior design. 

How Much Does it Cost to Choose Teterboro Airport for Jet Maintenance and Interior Design?

Most FBOs listed don’t have prices for services on their websites. Instead, you’ll need to contact individual FBOs for quotes on the services you need. The only one that offers some pricing around deicing is Meridian:

  • $26.60/gallon for PG Aircraft Deicing Fluid
  • $32.25/gallon for Flightguard AD-40 

It’s not clear whether the price includes labor or service fees, so we recommend that you contact the FBO for more details. 

What Differentiates Southern Air Custom Interiors from Teterboro Airport?

Most of Teterboro Airport’s FBOs don’t offer any interior services. Meridian offers detailing services, but that only skims the surface of the aircraft interior services offered by Southern Air Custom Interiors. Meridian might clean your upholstery, but we’ll rehaul it with new seats and offer interior design expertise to help you personalize your aircraft interior. 

Signature Flight Support’s South FBO location within Teterboro does offer aircraft refurbishment, but while Signature Flight Support is a respected aircraft management company, due to their size you’ll likely pay more for their services than at Southern Air Custom Interiors. 

On top of that, aircraft refurbishment is only one of the other hundred services offered by the company. Here at Southern Air Custom Interiors, we have skilled technicians with specialized expertise in interiors, offering you a better quality interior refurbishment before you fly.
