Senior managers from Meridian and architects Tectonic Design were joined at the ceremony by Hayward Executive Airport, as well as dignitaries from the City of Hayward.

Meridian began its western expansion in September 2012, with the opening of a charter sales office at San Jose International Airport. Later in the year the company opened a second sales office at Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa, CA.

In early 2013, the company based its first West Coast aircraft available for charter at Hayward Executive Airport in Hayward, CA.

Meridian signed a 50 year lease with Hayward Executive In January 2014, and plans to build a full-service, FBO and adjoining hangar at the airport.

Once fully operational, Meridian Hayward will offer fuel and maintenance services, as well as passenger and crew facilities.

Meridian is also planning to offer private charter services from Hayward by expanding its fleet of managed aircraft based at the new facility. Completion of the project is expected in the autumn of 2016, with a grand opening expected to follow shortly afterwards.
