Excelaire Expands Its Charter Fleet

The jet-charter carrier Excelaire, based in Ronkonkoma, N.Y., has expanded its fleet with a Bombardier Global 6000 and a Cessna Citation CJ3. The ultralong-range Global 6000 can travel 6,000 miles without refueling and accommodates as many as 16 passengers. Its cabin includes Wi-Fi Internet access and seven seats that can be converted into flat beds. The Citation CJ3 is a light jet capable of ferrying seven passengers and can travel more than 2,000 miles, which is enough to fly from New York to Miami. These two new jets add to Excelaire’s fleet of more than 20 aircraft, which range from the Citation CJ3 light jet to the ultralong-range Gulfstream GV. (www.excelaire.com)
