Teterboro Airport in New Jersey is a popular private airport for the rich and powerful. On-screen, it has appeared in several television shows including The Flight Attendant. It has also been the site of some real-life drama. It is where Jeffrey Epstein was arrested. In 2019, a WWII Spitfire airplane made a stop at Teterboro on a global tour.

Beginning operations in 1919, Teterboro Airport is the oldest operating airport in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan areas. It was founded by Walter C. Teter. A manufacturing plant operated at the site during World War I. Dutch aircraft designer Anthony Fokker used the facilities after the war. At the onset of World War II, the site was used by the Army and Air Force. Today, Teterboro is operated by the Port Authority and serves as a reliever airport, meaning there are no regularly scheduled public flights in and out.
