LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — The Blue Grass Airport is set to expand this fall.

The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Airport Board announced on Monday that they would be partnering with Denham-Blythe to construct a new $15.5 million, 50,000-square-foot hangar for large corporate aircraft at Blue Grass Airport.


The new hangar includes 30-foot-high doors, associated offices, storage spaces, and vehicle parking. The hangar is designed to accommodate business jets in sizes up to the Gulfstream G700 and Global Express 7500/8000 platforms.

“Blue Grass Airport is committed to advancing its private aviation facilities to meet the evolving needs of the aviation community,” said Eric Frankl, president & CEO of Blue Grass Airport. “This new hangar represents a significant step forward in that effort. The 30-foot-high doors will provide the flexibility to house a diverse fleet of aircraft, and we look forward to providing our corporate aviation partners with an exceptional facility with the utmost conveniences.”

Construction of the new hangar is set to begin in October 2023, with anticipated completion in fall 2024.
