A new 82 million dollar facility at San Jose International Airport that will support the personal aircraft of Google executives and other Silicon Valley executive fliers is scheduled to break ground soon.
In April, the San Jose City Council voted to grant delegated authority to the airport staff to finalize negotiations and execute a 50-year lease to Signature Flight Support. The company, which operates more than 100 locations in the U.S., Europe, South America, Africa and Asia, is a subsidiary of BBA Aviation, reports ABC News.
Signature Flight Support's development is in partnership with Blue City Holdings, a company representing the personal aircraft of the principals at Google. Google's headquarters in Mountain View is about 12 miles northwest of the airport.
