Meridian is pleased to announce the opening of our new facility, Meridian Hayward, located at Hayward Executive Airport(HWD)in Hayward, CA.
We began our westward expansion in September 2012, with the opening of a charter sales office at the San Jose International Airport (SJC) in San Jose, CA. In November of that year, a second sales office, located at the Sonoma County Airport (STS) in Santa Rosa, CA, was opened. In early 2013, Meridian based our first West Coast aircraft available for charter at HWD.
On January 1, 2014, Meridian signed a 50 year lease with the Hayward Executive Airport (HWD) with plans to build a full-service, world-class FBO and adjoining hangar at the airport. With many clients and aircraft operators already located in the San Francisco Bay area, it made sense for us to establish a presence on the West Coast.
The facility features the services and amenities that discerning passengers and flight crews should expect to find when traveling through a Meridian FBO, including professionally-trained customer service and line service teams, an elegant main lobby, business center, conference room, pilot briefing area, pilot lounge, coffee bar, kitchen/catering area, sleep room, shower and locker room, rental cars, and crew cars.
EPIC Fuels, a leading fuel supplier in the general and commercial aviation industries, is the branded fuel supplier for Meridian Hayward. The company offers the highest quality jet and avgas, and the EPIC card is proudly accepted at this location.
A great location for business and charter aircraft, Meridian Hayward is located at an airport with no curfew and, like Teterboro, is a General Aviation-specific airport, with no commercial airline traffic. This initial opening features a newly constructed 6,300 square foot terminal with support offices, a 30,000 square foot hanger and 3.5 acres of ramp area.
Additional phases of construction are planned, and will include a second 12,000 square foot terminal, two 40,000 square foot hangers and an additional seven acres of ramp space. The facility will serve as a West Coast base for Meridian Air Charter and Meridian Aircraft Management. Aircraft maintenance support is also available.
