Google fancies its own private airport
Google are spreading their wings far and fast. Now, they’ve managed to go on and pitch for a claim to a multi-million Dollar claim on a parking lot of the San José International Airport. The company wants to convert this parking lot into a private airport for its fleet of aircraft. This plainly reflects of the number of employees they have in transit and how seriously they take slicing down travel timelines. 29 acres of airstrip area would well suffice the search giant’s requirement. Taking a count, Google’s top three executives have at least eight jets, which includes a twin-aisle Boeing 767 passenger jet, claims one report. This private airport will most likely be developed and managed by Signature Flight Support, and would include an executive terminal, hangars, ramp space and aircraft servicing facilities.
The San José International airport deal would cost Google nearly $82-million. “We’re pleased that the evaluation process for the development of Mineta San José International Airport’s West Side is now complete, and the recommended outcome will prove to be incredibly prosperous for SJC, the City of San José, and Silicon Valley,” said Director of Aviation Bill Sherry.
