Banyan expands at Fort Lauderdale Executive


Company have acquired hangars 65 and 66

Banyan Air Service is expanding at Fort Lauderdale Executive
Airport. Earlier this
year, the company acquired hangars 65 and 66 with an additional 33,000 square
feet of space.

“These are great offices for aviation companies or
individuals who want to be located at FXE. They are also available as a
three-office or a five-office suite with side street access. The offices are
close to United States Customs, have good access to I-95 and have space for
vehicle parking,” said Dan Torres.

“South American pilots and charter companies enjoy
renting offices here for the convenience it provides,” added Jon Tonko,
Banyan’s line service manager. With 15 hangars and over one million square feet
of hangar and office space within an 85-acre complex, Banyan can accommodate
their needs for space.

Lauderdale Executive Airport has a wide variety of aviation related companies;
avionics and maintenance services, aircraft charter and management, flight
training schools, aircraft sales companies, aerial photography services,
helicopter services, air ambulance companies, corporate flight departments and
private aircraft. The airport has over 700 based aircraft, including 115 jets
and 37 helicopters.

“In addition, flying into Banyan at FXE is convenient
because of less air traffic, no landing fees, no ramp fees, no Customs fee, and
no facility fees,” said Tonko. FXE offers a 24-hour FAA air traffic control
tower, an instrument landing system, US Customs & Border Protection
Service, aircraft rescue and fire-fighting station, police substation and
24-hour contract security.

Banyan’s future plans include adding another 60,000
square feet of hangar space that would be designated for common storage and for
charter operations.

In addition to adding hangars, Banyan is updating its
security system by adding 26 more cameras to cover the ramp, parking lot and
interior hangars.
