Searching for Hangar Space Near New York City? Discover the Waterbury-Oxford Airport.

January 10, 2024

The best general aviation airport for business aviation in the Northeast.

As a business and cultural center, New York City is one of the most popular destinations for business jet aircraft in the world. Like every other large metro area, land is valuable and hard to find. Finding space at airports to build new or larger aircraft hangars that can accommodate today’s modern large-cabin, long-range business jets is even harder. Today’s business aviation fleet is growing, but hangar availability is getting more difficult to secure. For those looking for hangar space close to New York City, Waterbury-Oxford Airport is a well-established business aviation airport a short 10-minute flight north.

Waterbury-Oxford Airport (KOXC) Ideally Located

Located between the New York and Boston metro areas, Connecticut’s Waterbury-Oxford Airport offers many value-add benefits while answering the growing demand for new aircraft hangars in the Northeastern United States. The airport features a recently upgraded 5,801-foot (1,768-meter) long by 100-foot (30.5-meter) wide runway with a new asphalt-grooved surface, new taxiways and lighting, EMAS arrestor system and ILS approach.  In 2022, the airport also opened a U.S. Customs facility enabling overseas-arriving aircraft to clear customs there.

Across the business aviation industry, significant up-gauging is happening with new, larger aircraft being produced.
