Business aviation as a part of civil aviation for over 60 years. Since that time, business jets themselves have developed, as well as ground-based infrastructure. Separate VIP terminals appeared at airports, separate airports were built, the traffic of which consisted of either the majority of business jets or generally served only private flights.

Most often, a business aviation center is created on the territory of an existing airport, which usually includes a business aviation terminal, a platform for parking business jets, a storage hangar, a maintenance and repair center, and a helipad.

Business aviation airports are less common due to significant costs for the construction and equipping of airport infrastructure - the runway, radar and navigation equipment, a fueling complex, and the organization of all necessary airport services. Such specialized airports are, for example, near New York - Teterboro Airport, but their creation is justified only in regions with high traffic business jets.

Convenience of departure / arrival from the airport on a business jet mainly depends on the presence or absence of a separate VIP terminal and the volume of traffic for regular flights at the airport. Regular flights around the world take priority over departures over private flights. If there is a lot of traffic for regular flights, then there is the problem of receiving slots for departure at the desired time, as they may simply not be. A slot is a period of time during which a given flight is obliged to fly from the airport. Their number per hour is limited, since the airport can provide no more than a certain number of take-offs and landings per hour.
