IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - October 17, 2016) - EPIC Fuels, a leading supplier of ground and aviation fuels, is pleased to announce that Meridian's new fixed-base operations (FBO) at Hayward Executive Airport (HWD) in Hayward, California is open for business and fuel is flowing effective October 17. Meridian Hayward is featuring EPIC Fuels as the branded fuel supplier at the new location and is accepting the EPIC Card for fuel and ancillary purchases.
A great location for business and charter aircraft, Meridian Hayward is located at an airport with no curfew and, like Teterboro, is a General Aviation-specific airport, with no commercial airline traffic. This initial opening features a newly constructed 6,300 square foot terminal and offices, a 30,000 square foot hanger and 3.5 acres of ramp area.
Additional phases of construction are expected at a later date to expand the FBO, including a second 12,000 square foot terminal, two 40,000 square foot hangers and an additional seven acres of ramp space. The facility will serve as a West Coast base for Meridian Air Charter and Meridian Aircraft Management.
Operations begin immediately, but Meridian will host a grand opening later this Fall.
