Google to Begin Work on Their Own Private Airport in San Jose

Google Airport

Apparently, Google is tired of waiting in those long security lines at public airports. You know the best way to fix that? That’s right, build your own airport. According to Mineta San Jose International Airport, Signature Aviation and Blue City Holdings are to set to begin work on a $82 million 29-acre privately owned airport to house Google’s massive fleet, including enough ramp space to hold a Boeing 737 and 767, along with their long list of smaller private jets. 

Included will be an executive terminal, aircraft servicing facilities, and a long list of other fancy things. Below are a few of the concept pictures of what we can expect once the project is completed.

It’s safe to say that we will be extremely jealous of anyone fortunate enough to fly out of the “Google-port.”

    I think Google should buy out the US Postal Service. They are loosing money everyday and the rumors of fewer delivery days and bankruptcy…why not let Google run it.

    Anyone want to place bets on what the airport code will be?

    I hope one day Google owns everything!

    Eventually, Google will announce its own country. This company is a huge unguided missile.

    i hate it when websites use sensationalist titles to get more views. this is shameless of droid life.

  • master94

    Its official, Google has too much money and time on its hands. I love Google.

    Wow… this article is really poorly worded. Google is not building their own private airport complete with runway — they just want their own private hangar and lobby at the already fully functional San Jose airport. Talk about making a big deal out of nothing. “Google to build private airport” must get more hits though.

    • Fattie McDoogles

      But really for all intents and purposes… it’s basically their own airport. If you let me build another house own your property with my own separate door and separate driveway doesn’t that make it “my” house even though its on “your” property?

        But it’s not its own airport in any way and that analogy isn’t really equivalent to what they are planning; a more apt analogy would be a one bedroom guest house out behind a mansion. If anything it’s more like its own passenger terminal.

        At virtually every passenger airport across the country, there are companies called FBOs. What google will do is team up with arguably the most luxurious FBO out there and build its own facility, the majority of which will be flat concrete on which to park aircraft. It will probably consist of a several hangers with a central lobby, front desk, lounge, kitchen/dining area, and flight planning area.

        In order for a plane or helicopter to take off they will still have to coordinate with San Jose International’s clearance, ground control, tower, and arrival/departure as well as use San Jose International’s taxiways, runways, and fuel service trucks. This is definitely a poorly worded headline.

    Fairly soon Google will control the Government too!

    This is not an exclusive Google-port. It’s a new General Aviation facility and the Google fleet would be one customer, but would service other corporate & private airplanes.

    “Google to begin work on their own Patent Office… eschews USPTO”
    “Google to begin work on buying California”

    “Googl-fornia to secede from the United States”

    Damn, Google… you scary.

    Doesn’t Apple have a patent of the work “Airport” and does Apple have their own private air force? They probably don’t need one because Cook is the only one who is allowed to leave headquarters since they lost a phone in a bar a few years ago. BTW what ever happened to the guy that lost the phone, did he wind up with Jimmy Hoffa?

    Imagine being recruited by google to work there and flying into that airport for the interview. How could you turndown that job.

    Iphones will be taken and destroyed by their private TSA Agents

    • mjmedstarved

      Being that Google creates iOS apps.. I doubt it. ;-)

      No need for TSA when you fly private. It’s the good life.

    Love how they have an Aston and BMW parked. Baller cars to take you to baller jets and baller get-aways.

      This is a render. Could be a batmobile.

        That would’ve been so much cooler… and so much more Google.

    Google and John Travolta both have the right idea. Of course its hard to beat that John Travolta actually has his own private airport in his backyard. And since he is a pilot he can just wake up and walk back and fly anywhere he wants to go.

    • normmcgarry

      John Travolta doesn’t need an airport?
