More space has been added at the Lehigh Valley International Airport in Pennsylvania where a new 16.3 million dollar hangar was recently opened. The hangar encompasses 54,000 sq ft and has the capability to house bizjet sizes of G650. The extra space now brings the total hangared space to 250,000 sq ft at the airport. "If you search the Northeast corridor, hangar space is extremely limited," said Thomas Stoudt, executive director of the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority. They received an 8.8 million dollar grant from the PennDoT Bureau of Aviation to finish the new structure to its current state. "We are confident that Hangar 11 delivers a competitive advantage in attracting new tenants that strengthens economic growth within the Lehigh Valley." For corporate aircraft and travel, Stoudt said space is at a premium in the northeast, and LVIA’s hangar can offer cost savings compared to New York or New Jersey.
