Jet Edge International on Tuesday announced it has acquired Columbus, Ohio-based JetSelect Aviation.
The Van Nuys aircraft charter company will retain all employees and keep JetSelect’s Columbus-based charter operations.
The acquisition will provide more private jet charter options for consumers and corporations across the country as the company expands operations on the East Coast and West Coast, as well as in the Midwest and central parts of the country, the company said in a statement.
Jet Edge has bolstered its fleet to more than 85 aircraft, including more large-cabin and ultra-long-range options from Gulfstream, Bombardier, Dassault, Boeing and Embraer.
More offerings include super-midsize cabin class model Challenger 350/300, and heavy jet additions such as Challenger 604, Gulfstream G450, Falcon 900EX, and Global 5000 aircraft.
“We are thrilled to welcome the JetSelect Aviation aircraft owners, employees and charter clients to Jet Edge,” Bill Papariella, chief executive of Jet Edge, said in a statement. “We look forward to working together towards a very successful 2020 as this acquisition further solidifies Jet Edge as a world-class, end-to-end private aviation services platform.”
