Aircraft management company and charter operator ExcelAire (Booth No. 1143) announced the addition of a fourth Embraer Legacy 600 to its charter rolls, giving the company the largest fleet of Legacy jets in the Northeast. The added Legacy and its crew will be certified to operate into and out of London City Airport midway through next year, adding to its appeal for transatlantic charters. “We pioneered the Legacy charter market in the U.S., and it has since become one of our most popular aircraft,” said David Rimmer, president of the Ronkonkoma, N.Y.-based company. “Passengers love it because of its comfort and pricing, and it is also great for owners because of its low operating costs, popularity in the charter market and extremely high dispatch reliability.”
The Legacy will also doubtless be popular with customers of the specialty charter service ExcelAire introduced earlier this month, dedicated to planning and supporting music and financial road shows. These show itineraries are typically multi-leg, extended-duration trips, and the road show unit already has advance bookings through the middle of next year. “We at ExcelAire understand the complex and constantly changing nature of music and financial road shows, and are dedicated to providing our clients with a seamless travel experience,” said Rimmer.
