Omni's G280 can access all areas from Houston
The Gulfstream G280 taken on by Omni Air Transport has a range of up to 4,000 miles at Mach 0.82. Its performance is considered exemplary, and it also offers a comfortable ride for passengers and swift wi-fi.

Omni Air Transport has added a Gulfstream G280 to the Houston area, based at William P. Hobby airport. The 2013-built jet will be available for charter in the fourth quarter of 2019. Configured for nine passengers, it provides over 4,000 miles of non-stop flight and complimentary wi-fi.

“We are excited to have a Gulfstream G280 in our fleet. This aircraft is known for performance. It has the ability to climb directly to 43,000 ft and cruise at Mach .82 and easily reaches the four corners of the contiguous US from the Houston area,” says president Mike Skow.

The Gulfstream G280 is known among midsize jets for its standup cabin and leg room. The performance and efficiency make it an popular choice for business and leisure travel.

“As a company, we actively invest in continuous improvement and the addition of a Gulfstream G280 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,” adds VP Chris Deslongchamp.
