Jet Edge International, the leading business aircraft management and luxury jet charter provider, announced today the addition of two long-range business aircraft, which include a Falcon 900EX EASy II and Gulfstream GIV, as well as a 2015 ultra-long range Gulfstream G550, to its growing fleet of private jets. These aircraft expand the Jet Edge fleet to 48 large-cabin charter jets throughout North America and Asia.
“The addition of these three aircraft, each closing within the month of December, stands as evidence of not only the great momentum we experienced throughout 2015, but of the substantial efforts made every day by our talented aviation professionals,” said Bill Papariella, chief executive officer of Jet Edge International. “With two of the three additions being East Coast-based, our New York and Florida fleets have grown to more than 13 aircraft. This exceeds our 12-month east coast expansion plan and provides more depth and availability for our clients on both coasts.”
In 2015, Jet Edge grew from just over 30 charter aircraft to nearly 50 and secured more than 13,000 hours of revenue flights for charter aircraft.
Jet Edge’s newly added GIV operates from Palm Beach, Florida (KPBI) and provides non-stop luxury charter service to locations throughout North and South America and Europe. The aircraft is equipped with dual DVD/CD players and two 20” cabin monitors for inflight entertainment, as well as accommodations for USB charging for mobile devices throughout the cabin. Passengers also benefit from complimentary domestic wireless Internet while traveling in the spacious 14-passenger cabin.
The Gulfstream G550, added at the close of 2015 and based in the busy Los Angeles market (KVNY), is the 22nd luxury jet positioned on the West Coast for Jet Edge. As one of the most in demand aircraft models by discerning charter travelers, this brand new, well-appointed G550 boasts the latest in inflight amenities and cabin comforts. The bright, spacious interior seats 16 passengers with four berthing areas to sleep six and features domestic and international Wi-Fi connectivity.
A Dassault Falcon 900EX EASy II was added to the Jet Edge fleet in December. The Falcon 900 series of business jets offers long-range travel while delivering unrivaled fuel economy and cabin accommodations. The newly added Falcon 900EX comes equipped with Wi-Fi internet access, a fully-appointed galley, a breathtaking, spacious interior, and a cabin configuration that provides ultimate comfort for both business and leisure travelers. This is the first Jet Edge charter jet based in Canada, at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (CYYZ).
