MCKINNEY, TX-Plano-based professional business services company Crossmark has emparked on a new 10,200-sf hangar to house its corporate fleet at the McKinney Airport. This is another step in the efforts of the city, the McKinney Economic Development Corp. and WingsPoint Aviation to encourage more companies to utilize the airport for the aviation services.

The McKinney Economic Development Corp. and WingsPoint are also working to build new taxiways and hangars at the airport.

“Many corporations are concerned about time, safety and scaled-back airline schedules and are looking closely at the economics of business jets,” says Robbie Clark, CEO of Wingspoint Aviation. “McKinney Airport is ready to meet the new demand and provides the ease of travel required by business executives. Just minutes away from the Telecom Corridor, Legacy and Millennium business centers, McKinney Airport offers the safety and convenience of worry-free travel.”

Butch Smith, chairman and CEO of Crossmark adds, “The economy of North Texas is one of the strongest and most vibrant in the country and access provided by the McKinney Airport will continue to build on this momentum. Our site selection committee picked McKinney for several reasons including convenience, service, safety and how quickly we can get our airplanes in the air from this location. Having the new US Customs Service at the airport was also an important factor for our growing international operations.”

Other corporate clients using the McKinney Airport include Texas Instruments, Fleming Foods, Lattimore Materials and United American Insurance.
