Meridian Hayward selects EPIC Fuels
Meridian at Hayward Executive Airport will serve as the West Coast base for Meridian Air Charter and Meridian Aircraft Management.
Meridian has selected EPIC Fuels as the branded fuel supplier for their new FBO at Hayward Executive Airport – Hayward, California.
The FBO features a newly constructed 6,300-sq-ft terminal and offices, a 30,000-sq-ft hangar able to accommodate any corporate aircraft up to and including a Global Express and Gulfstream G650, as well as a 3.5-acre ramp.

Meridian will provide charter and management services, and eventually a Part 145 repair station and aircraft detailing at Hayward. Jet and avgas will be supplied by EPIC Fuels and the FBO will also accept the EPIC card.
Meridian, which has a 50-year lease on the property, says that a second 12,000 sq ft. terminal, two 40,000 sq ft. hangars and an additional seven acres of ramp space will be added in the near future.
Hayward has no curfew- and like Teterboro it is a general aviation-specific airport with no commercial airline traffic.
“After an extensive review of fuel suppliers, we chose EPIC Fuels as our partner because of their outstanding reputation in the industry; especially in terms of safety record, cost-effectiveness and excellent customer service.”

We’re confident that EPIC Fuels is the right partner for us as we build an exceptional, world-class facility at Hayward.”
