Million Air will expand its Texas footprint with the announcement that it will establish an FBO at Laredo International Airport.October 22, 2021, 8:59 AMMillion Air will expand its Texas footprint with the establishment of an FBO at Laredo International Airport, where it will join two existing service providers. The Houston-based company expects to break ground on the $15 million greenfield development in January, with an eye toward commencing operations by the end of 2022. The facility will include a 12,000-sq-ft, two-story terminal with a passenger lounge, three conference rooms, two snooze rooms, and a pilot lounge. An “initial” 29,000-sq-ft hangar is planned to accommodate the latest ultra-long-range business jets, and the development will also include a 1,000-sq-ft ground service equipment maintenance facility. Company CCO Terry Cross said that the latter is required due to the airport’s status as a major cargo hub on the South America-Canada route, and it will fill a need for on-field equipment repair. That building, designed to include offices and a lounge, will allow it to function as a temporary terminal in case delays are encountered during main terminal construction, according to Cross. The company will also add a fuel farm with a capacity of 60,000 gallons of jet-A and 12,000 gallons of avgas. The FBO at Laredo will be the Houston-based chain's sixth location in its home state. Cross told AIN that the company is excited “to service more international clients through one of the top airports for cargo in the U.S.” Business Aviation
