Two well known companies that operate and manage charter aircraft and jet travel cards have merged. As reported in AINalerts last month, Berwyn, Pa.-based JetDirect has acquired Weymouth, Mass.-based Sentient Jet. Member travel cards of the two companies will be integrated, and all the charter operations will be unified on one Part 135 certificate with a centralized dispatch center.
Two well known companies that operate charter aircraft and jet travel cards might be near to merging. According to sources close to the situation, Berwyn, Pa.-based JetDirect is negotiating to acquire Norwell, Mass.-based Sentient Jet.
JetDirect Aviation, a private jet services firm based in Berwyn, Pa., acquired Presidential Aviation, an aircraft management, charter and maintenance company with operations in Fort Lauderdale, New York and Los Angeles. JetDirect has been on an acquisition spree since last year.
JetDirect Aviation has added Regal Aviation at Dallas Love Field to its network of FBOs and maintenance facilities, an acquisition that brings to five JetDirect’s operations, which include locations at Republic Airport, Farmingdale, N.Y.; Chester County Airport, Pa.; Spirit Airport, St. Louis; and Van Nuys Airport in California.
Chairman and CEO Gregory Campbell predicts that JetDirect Aviation clients will be lured by a network set to burst from today’s 60 managed aircraft to a year-end target of 100, and new strategic locations, forming a “fully integrated national presence with local flavor.”
JetDirect Aviation purchased Regal Aviation, an FBO, maintenance, sales and charter/management company based at Dallas Love Field. JetDirect now owns three FBOs in the U.S. and three FAA repair stations and operates 64 charter aircraft.
