Meridian Air Charter Adds Challenger 605 to Fleet

Teterboro, NJ, March 9, 2015 – Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based in Teterboro, NJ, is pleased to announce the addition of a Bombardier Challenger 605 (N605MM) to its growing fleet of private business jets.  This large cabin aircraft was completed in 2008 and seats up to nine passengers.  It will be based at Teterboro Airport (TEB), and is immediately available for charter (Certificate IMJA053F).    

This aircraft was impeccably refurbished and repainted in December 2014, offering passengers a ‘like-new’ aircraft experience.  This stunning private jet comes fully-equipped and loaded with amenities: leather club seating, conference tables, berthable divan, full galley with microwave and convection ovens, coffee machine, and private lavatory with sink.  It also features the latest technology: Iridium satellite phone, Gogo Biz® high-speed wifi, bulkhead video monitors with Airshow® (3D moving maps), and a dual multi-media player.


Dennis O’Connell, President of Meridian Air Charter, says, “We are thrilled about adding this Challenger 605 to our charter fleet.  When you are inside the cabin, you feel like you are in a brand new plane that has just rolled off the assembly line.  This aircraft increases both the breadth and quality of our fleet offerings, and demonstrates the high level of commitment that we have to improving the flying experience of our clientele.”

The Challenger 605 is an evolution from its predecessor, the Challenger 604, offering best-in-class cabin comfort combined with its ability to operate cost effectively.  Bombardier added numerous enhancements when it designed this model.  In the cockpit, avionics include an impressive Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 with four large flat-panel displays.  The cabin was enlarged with space-efficient interior wall panels to increase usable head-room and width for passengers.  Even cabin windows were enlarged to allow 30% more light than previous Challenger 600 models.

Meridian currently manages a wide range of aircraft types that are available for private charter: Global 5000, Gulfstream G550, Gulfstream GIV-SP, Falcon 900EX EASy, Falcon 2000EX EASy, Challenger 605, Challenger 604, Challenger 601-3R, Challenger 601-3A, Gulfstream G200, Hawker 900XP, Hawker 800XP, Hawker 800SP, Citation XLS, Citation VII, and Citation Mustang.  Other aircraft types can also be obtained through Meridian’s extensive network of qualified operators.
