Aircraft management company L.J. Aviation has announced the opening of a new base at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), its sixth in total.

The new base has 36,000 sq ft of hangar area, with space to accommodate business aircraft up to the size of a Boeing Business Jet or Airbus Corporate Jet, along with a reception area, private offices and a lounge.

“As a part of our commitment to offering an exceptional customer experience, we are delighted to offer our customers expanded support, more resources, and increased flexibility,” said L.J. Aviation founder and CEO Ed Kilkeary Sr.

The new location would also provide customers with services including baggage handling, immigration and customs clearance, line maintenance and aircraft fueling, according to Kilkeary Sr.

“This new location provides room for continued growth of L.J. Aviation’s aircraft management services, aircraft charter operations, and our OnFlight charter membership program,” said company president and COO Ed Kilkeary Jr.

“It allows our customers the convenience of basing their aircraft at a world-class international airport. At the same time, the proximity of the new facility to our headquarters in Latrobe ensures that L.J. can immediately provide the same high level of customer service our clients have grown to expect.”
