PORTSMOUTH-One of Pease Tradeport’s newest buildings is already filled to overflowing.
Alpha Flying and sister company Atlas Aviation open their new 84,000-square-foot building this week on Flightline Road, consolidating operations from their former locations at Manchester airport and in Londonderry.
“We ran out of space in Manchester,” said company CEO George Antoniadis.
At the same time, Alpha is moving its flight operations center and some administrative offices into 15,000 square feet of leased office space just down the road. And they are negotiating with state and tradeport officials to double the size of the new building.
“We have an option to expand here at the Tradeport,” Antoniadis said. “We’d like to more than double the space we have now.” He is looking for some concessions from the tradeport and from the state to help get the project off the ground.
