Boca Raton, Florida-based charter broker and jet card provider Airstream Jets (ASJ) is expanding to the Northeast U.S. with the opening of an office at Signature Flight Support’s south terminal at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey.
The move to add an office is designed to help accommodate increasing demand for ASJ’s new Distance Card, the company said. ASJ also pointed to a rapidly growing customer base and said its revenues are on pace to triple those of last year. Sold in increments of $25,000, the Distance Card offers mileage-based pricing, using an algorithm that the company said provides flexibility and cost transparency.
Debbie Higgins, who has more than 30 years of business aviation experience, will head the new office as president of operations. Higgins’s background includes managerial experience in flight departments in both the South Florida and New York areas. She also founded Aero Education Academy in 2017 to train and mentor future business aviation professionals. Additional staff will be brought on board at the Teterboro site throughout 2019, ASJ added.
“In selecting our new office location, we felt it was important for us to have a presence in the heart of the world’s leading financial center,” Higgins said.
