Meridian strengthens fleet with spacious CL650
Meridian Air Charter is well-versed in Challenger operations, and a factory new 650 should complement its existing types nicely. Based in West Palm Beach, the jet will serve customers in the NYC area and south Florida.
Meridian sees the CL650 as a great addition to its charter lineup.

Meridian Air Charter of Teterboro, New Jersey, has added a 2018-build Challenger 650 to its managed fleet. The aircraft, which is available for charter, is based in West Palm Beach, Florida, and will principally serve south Florida and New York City-area customers.

The CL650 can accommodate up to 12 passengers and can fly a maximum distance of 4,000 nm with reasonable load. Its typical cruise speed is Mach 0.80 and it can reach a top speed of Mach 0.85. The cockpit features a Bombardier Vision flight deck, while the cabin has complimentary high-speed domestic wi-fi, an inflight satellite phone system, Airshow moving maps and display, and a multimedia entertainment system with USB and iPad connectivity. A full galley with sink, microwave, convection ovens and coffee maker and private lavatory with sink are also installed. The cabin is berthable and can sleep up to five people.

“We are really excited to offer our clients based in Palm Beach and south Florida a brand-new charter aircraft that is perfect for trips to the northeast or any domestic destination in the continental US,” says director of charter sales Chris Battaglia. “This aircraft is equipped with the latest technologies and amenities, ensuring a productive and comfortable flight. It is the perfect complement to our fleet of heavy jets.”

Meridian's fleet currently includes the Global 5000, Gulfstream G550, GIV-SP and G200, Falcon 7X, 900EX EASy and 2000EX EASy, Challenger 650, 605, 604, and the Hawker 900XP.
