Public charter operator Aero has expanded from the West Coast and opened a hub in Dallas. The opening comes on the heels of Aero’s Series B funding round, which is being used for the company’s market expansion, as well as to meet the increased demand on its existing routes.

“Dallas was an obvious next choice for the brand due to its central location, which will help position Aero for future growth across the U.S.,” the company said. The Dallas hub will be operated out of Signature Aviation’s terminal facility at Dallas Love Field.

Flights from Dallas will serve Aspen, Colorado, beginning May 18, and Los Cabos, Mexico, beginning April 21. Introductory rates start at $1,000 one way.

Aero uses refurbished Embraer ERJ-135 regional jets converted to all-first-class seating. In addition to Dallas, the startup operates private terminals at Los Angeles International Airport, Van Nuys Airport, and San Francisco International Airport that also serve destinations to Los Cabos, Aspen, and Sun Valley, Idaho.
