Fly Louie Alliance, an organization of independent charter operators, has grown its membership by 50 percent in the past year, accounting for a market share of 30 percent of Part 135 charter aircraft in the U.S.
Approaching its third year in operation, the alliance claims more than 300 charter operators and 3,000 aircraft as members of the group organized in part to bring operators economies of scale. Its programs include revenue management to match member aircraft with wholesale buyers, as well as fuel savings through a preferred program with 82 FBOs.
“Our vision for continued, shared success has never been more clear,” said Fly Louie founder and CEO Julia Takeda. We’re focused on solving broad issues such as aircraft supply and demand challenges, crew logistics, and finding quality ad-hoc and long-term charter revenue opportunities for our members. We know we’re stronger together and are grateful for operators’ confidence in our advocacy and results.”
