The above ad was placed by Million Air on airnav.com, a website for private aircraft researching which airports and private terminals to use. Notably, this ad appears on the page for Teterboro Airport.
Teterboro and Westchester Airport are competitors to serve private aircraft whose passengers are going to NYC. However, Teterboro has a 100,000 lb weight restriction that is strictly enforced both by the airport and by the activism of the surrounding community. They know that larger aircraft cause more air, water, and noise pollution. Any aircraft capable of operating over 100,000 pounds must fill out this form at least 72 hours before flying into Teterboro. The operator must seek permission and certify that the aircraft will be under 100,000 pounds throughout all operations at Teterboro.
Million Air knows this is inconvenient for private jet users who expect to fly wherever they want, whenever they want. This is why they are advertising “No Weight Restrictions!” to aircraft considering Teterboro.
Million Air has repeatedly claimed that their expansion serves the public and the environment by reducing the number of flights. We have previously shown that these claims are likely false. Obviously, attracting the heaviest, most polluting private jets to Westchester from Teterboro will increase the number of flights and the amount of pollution. While Million Air continues to lie to the county and the public with these claims, their advertising to their desired customers doesn’t lie.
