MIAMI, FLORIDA, August 10, 2021 – Global Crossing Airlines Group Inc. (TSXV: JET) (TSXV: JET.B) (OTCQB: JETMF) (the “Company” or “GlobalX”) is pleased to announce that as of August 7, 2021, it has begun passenger revenue operations as the newest US airline.
Flying the Airbus A320 family, the airline provides charter flights to U.S, Canadian, Caribbean, and Latin American destinations from its hubs in Miami and Atlantic City. GlobalX flies for casinos, cruise lines, major hotel and resort destinations, and incentive groups.
“We are obviously very pleased that we have cleared all DOT and FAA regulatory requirements and have begun revenue flights as of last Saturday. We are seeing very strong demand for our aircraft and will be announcing some major track charter programs (where we fly for a client long term and every day), as well as US government and other on-demand charters. The opening of our Atlantic City base has created additional opportunities, and we have now booked a significant number of charter programs from ACY. We are working with our commercial alliance partner, Canada Jetlines, in developing cross border charter programs and providing them additional aircraft this winter to satisfy demand from Canada to sun destinations in the US,” said Ed Wegel, Chair and CEO of GlobalX.
