SYRACUSE, NEW YORK April 2018 – On April 23rd, Million Air Syracuse will be opening its doors for business on its new 11,000 sq. ft. FBO facility along with a 28,000 sq. ft. hangar, at Syracuse Hancock International Airport. This state of the art FBO is a near $10MM project, representing the 13th FBO in the Freeman Holdings Group portfolio. Million Air Syracuse has been busy receiving equipment, hiring and training employees and preparing the taken on Central New York!
Overall the Million Air footprint is approximately 43,000 sq. ft. The two-story passenger terminal is elegantly appointed with a beautiful fireplace and high-end finishes throughout. The second floor of the FBO overlooks both the ramp and the interior of the hangar through large glass windows. Amenities include a hospitality check-in area and concierge desk, soda and coffee bar, pilot sleep rooms, dedicated flight planning area, state of the art theatre room, available offices for lease on the second floor and two multi-media conference rooms. The hangar is heated with epoxy floors, bright LED lights and a door height that can accommodate the largest of corporate jets.
“With a location currently in Rome, NY, we feel like we have a good understanding of the upstate New York market,” said Scott Freeman, CEO of the Freeman Holdings Group. “Striving to make our customers feel at home, we have taken every consideration into account to make sure all amenities reflect the unparalleled experience customers have come to expect from Million Air. We are confident we can deliver a facility and service level that will be unrivaled at this airport.”
Planning for the project began in 2012. The vision was to create a new front door to Central New York for visitors, business leaders, government officials, entertainers and other distinguished guests arriving by private aircraft. Million Air is confident that having a brand new, world-class facility and operator translates into a first impression of renewal, growth and optimism for the region. With immediate access to I-81, the facility is equally suited for emergency and first responder air-ground accessibility, coordination, and operations.
