It is the oldest operating airport in the New York City area, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns and operates Teterboro. Teterboro Airport said in a statement it "has been closed and flight operations ceased following the crash of a Learjet on final approach to the airport". Thick plumes of black smoke were seen billowing from the scene. No one on the ground was injured.

The area around the fire scene was crowded with police and rescue equipment as smoke poured from a building still on fire. The pilot, who was the only person on board, was not hurt in the crash, according to police.
