During layovers, our Client Service Representatives will ensure that passengers, pilots, and crew members have the opportunity to take advantage of regional attractions. These include making arrangements to enjoy the surrounding area’s many oceanside dining options, the world-renowned Jones Beach, or even taking in a game at Mets’ Citi Field. In addition, a helicopter charter is available so our guests may visit virtually any location in the Northeast they desire.

When flown into our facility and airport in NY, our clients are pleasantly surprised at the Republic Jet Center difference. They enjoy the experience that only a superb concierge, coupled with experienced personnel providing all aircraft services, in plush surroundings, can provide. These details make Republic Jet Center a recognized industry leader.
