Tampa International Airport officials joined Sheltair on Thursday at a celebration for the grand opening of four new hangars at the FBO's award-winning facility in Tampa.

The $26 million project adds another 77,000 square feet of hangar space and 32,000 square feet of office space to their location, which is open 24 hours a day. The work also included adding a 336,208-square-foot apron.

It took 18 months to build the new additions to the 35-acre complex, including covered and uncovered parking. Sheltair's total footprint at TPA now totals 300,557 square feet.

"What an incredible investment this is for our airport and our community, and I think it really is reflective of the service and the standard that Sheltair brings to our Airport every single day," TPA Director of General Aviation Brett Fay said.

The complex can accommodate a diverse range of aircraft, including large-cabin class aircraft, like the G650 or Global 7500. The hangars further feature a foam fire suppression system.

“We are excited to be opening these new hangars at TPA,” said Lisa Holland, Sheltair’s CEO and President. “These sleek, state-of-the-art facilities are a game-changer, not just for addressing the soaring demand in aircraft storage at TPA but also for fueling fresh economic growth in the airport’s vibrant community."
