Fractional jet ownership company Airshare will expand into five new cities with the hiring of two new sales directors, Chris Mahon and Matt Hall, the Lenexa, Kansas-based firm announced yesterday. Airshare is looking to add fractional owners who reside in Chicago; Milwaukee; Indianapolis; Cincinnati; and Louisville, Kentucky.
“We've answered the demand from customers, and we're pleased to announce our commitment to meeting those needs,” said Airshare chief executive John Owen. “Our Upper Midwest expansion allows us to aggressively grow our customer base with the most efficient fractional program in private aviation. The addition of these markets will greatly enhance the service we provide to our existing customers as well.”
Most of Airshare’s 12,000 annual flights operate to and from cities such as Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, and the Great Lakes region. In the past decade, the company has seen 200 percent growth. The expansion also positions Airshare for additional growth in the Northeast U.S.
“We plan to double the size of our revenue and customer base in the next three years, along with significantly growing our overall fleet,” Owen added. AirShare’s fractional fleet consists of 100 Embraer Phenom 100s and 300s, as well as 20 other types that make up its managed aircraft fleet.
