Flexjet, one of the largest private aviation companies, has expanded its private terminal network with a new location at Van Nuys airport in Los Angeles, California. The company’s fourth terminal is on the Clay Lacy Executive Complex and features a 3,000 square-foot lounge available exclusively for Flexjet clients.
Flexjet offers fractional jet ownership, leasing and jet cards on a fleet featuring light, midsize, large cabin and ultra-long range aircraft, with an average age of approximately six years.

“In choosing to locate our Van Nuys private terminal at the Clay Lacy Executive Complex, we are able to offer our clients one of the most premium, private and secure locations,” said Flexjet Chief Operating Officer Megan Wolf. “And expanding our network of private terminals offers our clients another retreat as they travel with us.”
This terminal at Van Nuys (ICAO: KVNY) is at one of Flexjet’s busiest destinations and has Flexjet’s second-largest passenger lounge. Throughout the lounge are oversized black and white photographs that invoke the romance of old Hollywood, Rock ‘n’ Roll, business and the arts that pay tribute to 50-year history of legendary aviation pioneer Clay Lacy, the namesake of the facility.
“We found the right location at Van Nuys, the right partner with Clay Lacy Aviation and the right time to address the extraordinary growth in the southern California region,” said Flexjet’s Executive Vice President of Sales D.J. Hanlon. “The new terminal has outstanding features including a private ramp so that our clients can choose to drive directly to their aircraft or enjoy privacy inside the terminal to wait for their travel companions.”
The latest in Flexjet’s private terminal network also includes:
- Private, gated entrance to Flexjet’s terminal and parking lot
- Private ramp side access to board aircraft
- Conference room with multimedia connectivity and Wi-Fi access for Flexjet clients
- Staffed by Flexjet employees
- A café and espresso bar
- Flexjet’s largest pilot lounge
Flexjet builds its private terminals in the places where the company experiences its greatest demand, including White Plains, NY, Naples, FL and West Palm Beach, FL.
Each of the private terminals offer a host of amenities, from fully stocked bar and café stations and high-speed Wi-Fi access, to modern conference rooms, a dedicated concierge and a team of Flexjet gate agents.
In February 2016, Flexjet opened its first private terminal at Naples, Florida (ICAO: KAPF). Staffed exclusively by Flexjet employees, that terminal also offers sheltered and shaded parking, private workspaces and Wi-Fi Internet access, just to name a few features.
In 2017, Flexjet opened a private terminal at Westchester County Airport (ICAO: KHPN) in White Plains, NY. This is consistently is one of the three busiest airports in the country for Flexjet clients. Flexjet invested $5 million in renovations at the facility over 18 months to make it the most state-of-the-art facility on the airport grounds. The hangar doors were expanded to accommodate the Gulfstream G650, which Flexjet first took delivery of in late 2017.
The third private terminal to open was at West Palm Beach, Fla. (ICAO: KPBI), another high-demand location for Flexjet clients.
The company also has Flexjet House in Mayfair, central London. The facility provides Flexjet owners with a London home base, including offices and conference rooms, a refuge in which to relax and grab a cup of tea or a cocktail, among other amenities.
Two additional Flexjet private terminals are scheduled to open in 2021 – this summer at Dallas Love Field (ICAO: KDAL), where Flexjet also maintains maintenance facilities and offices for its Dallas-based staff; and late in Q4 at Teterboro, NJ (ICAO: KTEB).
