A group of former JetBlue executives has launched a new charter operation designed around the Phenom 100. The company, JetSuite, has placed an order for 100 aircraft–50 firm and 50 options–and plans to lease the aircraft to customers. First deliveries are expected next April. The company has also applied for a Part 135 certificate and plans to launch charter services from bases in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, pending final government approval. Company president Alex Wilcox was a founding director of JetBlue Airways, and Usto Schulz and Amy Curtis-McIntyre served as vice presidents.
