"Teterboro is one of the most popular airports for private jet travellers out of Manhattan and other New York and New Jersey locations, and our GV will support cross-country and international flights," says president of business development Chuck Stumpf. "It's perfect for corporate and leisure travel to Europe and other far-reaching destinations."
The Teterboro location is the latest in Silver Air's expanding footprint across the US, with operations based in southern California, northern California, Texas and now New Jersey.
"The Teterboro move was a strategic decision made with the GV owner to support their goals while expanding our charter operations," Stumpf explains. "Our PURE jet management model is designed to serve our jet owners first, and sometimes that means placing the aircraft in a location to maximise charter revenue. We're seeing more jet owners embrace this model, because it puts their interests first."
The GV was added to Silver Air's fleet earlier this summer. It has a 12-passenger cabin that can be configured to sleep six, and has a range of 6,500nm, opening up non-stop routes to London, Tokyo and Beijing. The jet is also equipped with a four-seat conference table, complimentary domestic inflight wi-fi, Aircell satellite phone, and 110 AC outlets at every seat.
Silver Air manages and operates privately owned aircraft from bases throughout the United States, and says it is it is the only operator to offer unrestricted charter availability on a BBJ. Its fleet features light to large-cabin jets from Gulfstream, Dassault, Bombardier, Embraer, Cessna, Hawker and Beechcraft.
The company's charter operations have earned an ARGUS Platinum rating and IS-BAO Stage II. Silver Air is also a member of the Air Charter Safety Foundation.
