HOUSTON – Million Air Houston (HOU), celebrated the opening of their new FBO facility at Hobby Airport with an exclusive grand opening event on March 21, 2014. The 400 plus guests enjoyed a fashion show featuring Nini Jewels with Saks Fifth Avenue, Sakowitz Furs, display of the newest Bombardier Challenger 350 and Piaggio Aero P. 180 Avanti II and Rolls Royce Motor Cars Wraith on static display. Alongside the luxury cars was Shannon Moore’s 2005 Mustang Tribute Car “Her Majesty” on static display honoring U.S. War Veterans.
Million Air’s new 22,000 sq. ft. facility and extended ramp exceeded 15 million dollars. It boasts ten luxury tenant offices, multi-media conference rooms, theatre room, flight planning room and storage lockers for flight departments and tenants. The dedicated pilots’ lounge has two snooze rooms, private restrooms with showers and security monitors that monitor the lobby and gate access enabling pilots to watch for passengers. A very special feature is the Million Air Sky Lounge, an 800 sq. ft. lounge and conference room that opens to a 753 sq. ft. balcony landing that overlooks the airport and ramp.
The opening of the new facility compliments Million Air Houston’s existing foot print of nearly 99,000 sq. ft. of hangar space, Class A and B office space and 10 new acres of ramp with ample aircraft parking. The current executive terminal is now a leasable Class A office space for corporate and charter flight departments. Covered vehicle parking and multiple gathering entertainment space is available for lease. There are seven hangars, five with air conditioned office space, ranging in size from 2,500-14,400 sq. ft.
“The team at Million Air recognizes the unprecedented opportunities that currently exist in Houston due to a dynamic economy and record-setting passenger totals,” says Perry J. Miller, General Manager at William P. Hobby Airport. “More importantly, they’ve shown a willingness to seize those opportunities with a significant investment that will dramatically improve the overall experience for their customers. We welcome the improvements and congratulate them on a job well done.”
“Million Air looked at the expansion project as an opportunity to once again raising the bar on luxury,” said Roger Woolsey, President/CEO for Million Air. “Fueled by our dedication to our pilots and passengers, we have taken every consideration into account to make sure all amenities reflect the unparalleled experience you expect from Million Air Houston.”
