Trio of Learjets arrive at Omni Air Transport
Omni's VP of business development Jasper Athwal says that the company jumps at the chance to add Learjets to its fleet. It currently has a spring in its step, as a Learjet 40, 60 and 75 have been brought into the fold.

Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Omni Air Transport is adding three further Learjets to its fleet; a LR40, a LR60 and a LR75. The 2018-build Learjet 75 is available for immediate charter from Dallas, while the six-seat Learjet 40, also based in Dallas, and eight-seat Learjet 60 are expected to be available for charter by late spring. The Learjet 60 will be based at David Wayne Hooks Memorial airport in the Houston area.

“We are thrilled to expand our business in the Dallas market and are looking forward to offering existing and new charter clients the same impeccable service that our Tulsa residents have come to love,” says president Mike Skow.

VP of business development Jasper Athwal adds: “We jump at any opportunity to add a qualified Learjet to our managed aircraft family. Our decades of history with these jets allows us to provide unmatched management solutions and optimal cost offset to the owner through charter revenue.”

The 2006 Learjet 60 has had fresh paint and an interior upgrade this March. It has a range of up to 2,000 miles and features complimentary wi-fi.

“We are excited to have a Learjet 60 in our fleet,” continues Skow. “This aircraft is known for performance. It has the ability to reach cruise altitude in less than 14 minutes and easily reaches the four corners of the contiguous US from the Houston area.”

Adds Athwal: “As a company, we actively invest in continuous improvement and the addition of a Learjet 60 to our management programme is just one more way that we are able to provide for our clients. This jet is spacious, comfortable and a top performer. We are thrilled to have it as an option for charter service out of Houston.”
