Gulf Shores, Ala. – (OBA) – In a significant development for the Gulf Shores International Airport, the Southwest Corporate Hangar Complex has reached full capacity with the inclusion of Tetelestai Aviation, LLC. This signifies the leasing of all available corporate hangar sites by the Gulf Shores Airport Authority.

The complex, initially built in 2008, remained largely unoccupied for years due to an economic slump at the time. However, the recent surge in growth along the Alabama Gulf Coast has brought an increased demand for airport facilities, prompting businesses and individuals to move to the region.

Tetelestai Aviation’s addition marks the ninth new facility in the Southwest Corporate Hangar Complex, adding to the ongoing construction. In total, the complex will have 128,960 square feet of space distributed among thirteen facilities, all built since 2017.

Scott Fuller, the Airport Director, announced plans for further expansion. A study is currently in progress to identify and develop the most promising sectors of the airport to meet the growing demand for new facilities. The master plan, co-funded by the City of Gulf Shores, will include land use planning for areas adjacent to the airport, which are also witnessing significant growth and development of new projects.
