I talked earlier about the fact that the holidays were over for charter jet companies, however, it does seem that at least one wholly owned company in the charter jet world is seeing growth over this time last year. XOJet, based out of Brisbane and California, is reporting that they are up 50% over the same time last year and in fact they are increasing their fleet to meet the demand. They are adding to their fleet to meet the demands of customers by adding a Bombardier Challenger 300 series and has added last month its first ever Challenger 605. The company is reporting that it plans to add additional jets in its fleet in the future in 2011.
As a company they have increased its numbers by 50% but in the large market cities of Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco it has seen larger numbers. The commercial operations leader of the company, Brad Stewart has stated:
“Our growth in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco continues to accelerate, with all three markets growing more than 70 percent in recent months and exceeding 80 percent overall growth in November.”
I hope XOJet continues to see the growth in its industry and they continue to be a leader in chartered jets.
