Green Bay, WI-- Jet air is "taking off"  with a new expansion at Austin Straubel International Airport.

Today.. A new 34-thousand square foot hangar was unveiled.

Leaders say they hope it will expand jet-air's presence in northeast wisconsin.

"Well jet air expanded in 2010 and we took a big risk at doing it at that time and we fund out within six months we were over capacity and like they say build it and they will come. Well that's what happened to us" says Al Timmerman, the CEO of Jet Air.

The hangar will be used for aircraft storage  and provide more space for crews to repair and install equipment.

The company is also hoping  to add more jobs.
