Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Gulfstream International Airlines will begin flying Beech 1900Ds to five EAS destinations from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport under an expanded code-share deal with Continental Airlines. The contract calls for Gulfstream to begin serving DuBois and Franklin, Pa., and Lewisburg, W.Va., on September 3. It plans then to launch service to Bradford, Pa., and Jamestown, N.Y., on October 1. The move to Cleveland comes as Gulfstream negotiates the sale of the eighth member of its Florida-based Embraer EMB-120 fleet, the first seven of which will transfer to their new owners on August 15. Gulfstream planned to remove all eight from service on August 1, leaving the airline with a single fleet type and significantly reduced capacity in its Florida/Caribbean network.
