Teterboro Airport (KTEB) - Jet Charter Services

Teterboro, located in New Jersey’s Meadowlands, is the oldest operating airport in the New York City metropolitan area. It has become known as the gateway for the rich and famous who charter private jets to Manhattan.

Originally the place where Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart flew the earliest planes, the small airport, located a mere 12 miles from the middle of Manhattan, is now used for private charter jets carrying passengers into New York City and surrounding areas.

Where do the rich and famous and elite private jet travelers land when flying into New York City?

They land at Teterboro Airport, which is located in the New Jersey Meadowlands, a mere 12 miles from midtown Manhattan.

It’s one of the five busiest airports in the world, some years in the No. 1 spot. The only other U.S. airport on that short list is Van Nuys, where A-listers in private jets fly into Los Angeles. The other three airports in the Top 5 are Paris Le Bourget (LBG), London Luton (LTN) and Al Maktoum (Dubai) International (DWC).

Commercial traffic has been eliminated because Teterboro Airport maintains a weight limit of 100,000 pounds per aircraft.

The lack of commercial traffic and four FBOs make it ideal to charter a private jet at Teterboro. In addition, airport personnel have been trained to be very discreet about the comings and goings of the airport’s clientele. Celebrities choose Teterboro because it is a place where they can slip unnoticed from their private jets into cars or limos that take them into the city.

The Story of Teterboro

A century ago, planes flying into and out of Teterboro Airport were piloted by the likes of Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart. Today, the skies over Teterboro are still filled with famous people but now they are celebrities, movie and sports stars, corporate business executives and other discerning travelers who travel into the New York City area in private charter jets.

Teterboro, which is located in the New Jersey Meadowlands, 12 miles northwest of Manhattan, is the oldest operating airport in the New York City metropolitan area.

The 1.3 square mile valuable piece of land on which Teterboro sits wasn’t always a hub for luxurious private charter jets carrying famous people. It was swampland prone to frequent flooding when New York banker Walter C. Teter bought it in 1917 to build a racetrack. But when his plans didn’t get approval from the state’s racing commission, Teter sold the property to an aircraft corporation that built the airport. It was privately run until being taken over by the New York City Port Authority in 1949. It leased the airport to Pan Am World Airways and then Johnson Controls until the Port Authority regained full control over it in 2000.

In the early days, Charles Lindbergh used the airport to get to New York City to meet with executives from Wright Aeronautical, which built the engine that powered his plane across the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia Earhart did test flights over Teterboro as she trained for her first trans-Atlantic trip.

Teterboro also played an important part in times of war. During World War I, it was the site of a manufacturing plant for planes. During World War II, the Army and the Air Force took over its operation. Over the years, as big commercial airports like Newark International and LaGuardia were built, Teterboro became a “reliever airport,” used by smaller private and charter planes and jets. Most major metropolitan areas have such airports. In Boston, there is Hanscom Field; in Los Angeles, there is Van Nuys Airport.

These reliever airports provide landing spots for passengers who want easy access into major cities without the hassle of commercial flight. There are some 500 takeoffs and landings from Teterboro every day.

But it isn’t just people who are important users of Teterboro. It is also known as a place where human organs bound for transplant are flown in and out of. Getting a plane out at the last minute, something nearly impossible at commercial airports, is routine for Teterboro.

A call in the middle of the night can result in an organ being airlifted within an hour from the airport.

Aviation Museum

On the east side of Teterboro Airport is the Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum of New Jersey. It was founded in 1972 to preserve New Jersey’s contribution to aviation history.

Exhibits include historic aircraft, space equipment, photographs, fine art and a huge collection of model aircraft.

Men and women who have brought pride to New Jersey through their aeronautical achievements are enshrined in the museum.

It is open to the public for a small entrance fee. More information is available here.
