Some of you have probably flown in/out of KTEB (in Infinite Flight), in the New York region located in northeastern New Jersey. At first glance, it just looks like a mid-size GA airport. But in reality it’s much more than that.
Located in the large town of Teterboro, NJ, this airport formed in 1919 is bustling with activity. The airport averages about 419 operations daily, which means about 17 per hour, however this number is usually higher or lower depending on the time of day. You may think why is this so high for a GA airport? Well, that’s because this airport is located very close to Manhattan, about 15 miles away. There are plenty of rich people who live in the city, and Teterboro is just a stone’s throw away for their private jets. Rich people/celebrities/sometimes even politicians use this airport when flying into the New York area. There are also charter airlines, such as (but not limited to) NetJets and XOJet that operate out of the airport. While Teterboro and surrounding/nearby towns are decent sized, most of it’s area is middle class, therefore they go to the nearby Newark Liberty Intl. However, other parts of northeastern NJ nearby are very rich, beautiful towns with sprawling mansions, which means that some people from there likely use Teterboro.
There is currently no airline service to/from TEB.
Teterboro is definitely capable of handling such traffic. The airport has 2 runways, each of which are over 6,000 feet long. The airport even has it’s own Customs and Border Protection facility.
