Jet management and charter business Jet Exchange has secured approval from the US Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Authority to conduct commercial operations.
Additionally, it has also been granted approved carrier status from the US Department of Homeland Security, easing entry into the USA for passengers holding a passport from a participating country in the US Visa Waiver Program.
Ian Austin, managing director and founder of Jet Exchange, said: “Our new Challenger 604 provides a convenient and cost effective option in the market for trans-Atlantic charter trips, be it for business in Boston or shopping in New York.
“As an approved carrier, brokers can now be sure that their clients can enjoy easy entry into the US while travelling in bespoke comfort and luxury.
“Our experienced crew have already done a number of USA tours covering the full length and breadth of the continent, ensuring the highest levels of service.”
The approvals follow a period of rapid growth for Luton Airport-based Jet Exchange, which recently acquired its own AOC and now operates a variety of aircraft ranging from mid-range jets to European turboprops.
Founded by pilot and engineer Ian Austin in 2007, Jet Exchange has since grown into a leading jet acquisition, sales, management and charter business.
