JetFlite International (JFI), a leading provider of aircraft management and charter services worldwide, reported outstanding growth in 2010 with a 37 percent increase in charter revenues compared to 2009 and is projecting a greater than 30 percent growth this year.
Having major facilities now on both coasts and international flights accounting for nearly 55 percent of JFI’s total aircraft charter business has contributed to this growth, said JFI President Albert C. Pod.
Larger cabin aircraft compose a greater segment of our charter flights than most charter companies, he said. Among those is the addition last year of a new Gulfstream G200 to go along with a Lear 60. JFI has a managed aircraft fleet that spans the nation.
Last year JetFlight International flew to more than 35 countries including Algeria, Brazil, Chile, China, Czech Republic, France, Georgia, Israel, Morocco, Russia, Ukraine, and Vietnam.
JetFlite opened a new operating base at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY last year. Two jets, a Gulfstream IV and Challenger 601, are based at the new east coast operation. Cary Simpson, vice president of charter sales, said JFI charter business in the Los Angeles market is up 35 percent over last year.
