A Peak Teterboro- NYC’s Private Jet Airport

A Peak Teterboro- NYC’s Private Jet Airport


Most people who have to fly in and out of New York agree that La Guardia is a nightmare, and JFK is really not all that much better!

However, those that can fly private, have another option altogether – “New York City’s” other airport – Teterboro!

Teterboro is not in New York, it is actually in New Jersey. But it is a mere 12 miles from the city, making it the New York metropolitan area’s primary private jet airport. Teterboro is a general aviation airport, which means it has been mainly designed to accommodate private jets.

According the Business Insider, celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Usher, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have all been spotted at Teterboro. And, if it sounds like you have heard the regional airport in the news lately, it was at Teterboro that back in July,  that the late financier and accused sex-trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein, was arrested.

But, such notoriety aside, the next time you are looking to take a bite of the Big Apple, Teterboro is great place to start out from!

Some Teterboro Tidbits

As we said earlier, Teterboro -  KTEB in airport lingo - is only 12 miles from NYC, making it the closest private airport to Manhattan.  That means depending on the time of day, you can make it to the city, usually in about 30 minutes or less.

According to a 1976 profile of the airport published in the New York Times, Teterboro, which began operations in 1919, is the oldest airport serving the New York Metro area, and in the 1920s it was the center of America’s “Golden Age” of aviation. Both Charles A. Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart spent time flying in and out of the airport.

If you go to the airport, do not expect to see the usual airline logos such as American or Delta. Commercial airlines do not use Teterboro. Instead your private flight will be serviced by what is called an FBO. A “Fixed Base Operator,” or FBO, is responsible for handling all aircraft services at smaller regional airports such as Teterboro. The FBO is responsible for passenger boarding, aircraft fueling, parking, maintenance, private charters, and de-icing. They also handle towing and baggage handling, car rentals, hotel reservations, and some include pilot lounges. There are five FBOs at Teterboro.
