The latest airline from the United States, Global Crossing Airlines, has entered into regular revenue service. After having received all needed operational certificates from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), the carrier is now eligible to transport passengers on scheduled flights.

Currently a sole Airbus A320 aircraft is in operation for Global Crossing Airlines, with which the carrier provides charter flights to destinations in the United States, Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.

Most customers have been booking the charter airline for transporting passengers to cruise lines, casinos or major hotel and resort destinations. Global Crossing Airlines is flying as a Part-121 airline approved by the FAA.

Ed Wegel, Chair and CEO of GlobalX commented: “We are obviously very pleased that we have cleared all DOT and FAA regulatory requirements and have begun revenue flights as of last Saturday. We are seeing very strong demand for our aircraft and will be announcing some major track charter programs (where we fly for a client long term and every day), as well as us government and other on-demand charters.”

One of the airlines´ main operational hubs is located at Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) in New Jersey, at which GlobalX is seeking to expand their operations.

Wegel stated: “The opening of our Atlantic city base has created additional opportunities, and we have now booked a significant number of charter programs from ACY. We are working with our commercial alliance partner, Canada Jetlines, in developing cross border charter programs and providing them additional aircraft this winter to satisfy demand from Canada to sun destinations in the U.S.”

Once the Airbus A321 aircraft is also certified and approved for passenger services, the airline will have another operational hub at Miami, subject to FAA and DOT approvals. In the second half of 2021, two additional aircraft will join the fleet to expand operations.
