Rectrix Aviation Looks to Start Commercial Airline Service

2016 02 10

 Rectrix Aviation, a provider of premium jet service and charters, aircraft management, aircraft maintenance, and fixed-based operations services, has submitted an application to the Department of Transportation to conduct scheduled air service as a commuter carrier. The application has proposed scheduled service between Hyannis, MA (KHYA) and Nantucket, MA (KACK). Once DOT approval has been received, Rectrix will be able to offer passengers scheduled by-the-seat competitive options for their travel plans, leveraging their extensive experience as an on-demand provider.

Rectrix has identified an important need for frequent, scheduled passenger air transportation to replace the commercial schedule left vacant when Island Air ceased operations in December 2015. The company intends on operating a fleet of King Air 350i aircraft upon DOT and FAA approval for the proposed commercial service. Other routes are also in the planning stages from Worcester, MA (KORH) and the New York area.  

Rectrix Aviation is an established aviation company headquartered in Massachusetts, already holding an Air Carrier Certificate (#6RXA771M) and operations specifications from the Federal Aviation Administration. Rectrix is the largest Massachusetts private charter company owning its aircraft fleet and fixed based operations (FBOs). The company currently provides on-demand service with a fleet of seven jet aircraft.

About Rectrix Aviation

Rectrix Commercial Aviation Services, Inc. offers premium private jet charter, aircraft management, aircraft repairs and maintenance and fixed-base operations (FBO) services.  Since its founding in 2005, Rectrix has set the gold standard in the world of aviation.  The company has a long history of expansion and has revolutionized the FBO concept through the operation of high quality FBO services in key locations on the East Coast, including Bedford and Worcester Massachusetts and Sarasota, Florida. In 2009 Rectrix acquired New World Jet, a global jet operator with operating authority for 10 or more passenger seats. This charter operation, rebranded as Rectrix Aviation, Inc., enabled the company to offer travel in a cost-effective manner by utilizing their own fleet of Lear 45 and Challenger 300 aircraft at their state-of-the-art Rectrix Aerodrome Center private terminals.  Exceptional service is the core principle of how Rectrix operates, and the company is committed to growing the general aviation industry in Massachusetts and throughout the nation.
