Bohlke International Airways of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands and MN Aviation of San Juan, Puerto Rico have announced that they are forming a partnership. With Bohlke established in 1959 and MN in 1993, this agreement yields an expanded team of 60 along with a broad range of charter assets. A Falcon 900EX has been added to the TJSJ-based, Part 135 charter certificate under MN.

“Our goal is to be the go-to resource for private aviation in the Caribbean,” states Bohlke president William R. Bohlke. “The Bohlke/MN partnership is a significant step toward providing a more robust aviation resource in the region, utilising the depth of industry knowledge and client goodwill toward these two brands. The operational base of MN in the busy hub of San Juan joining forces with our 60-plus years of experience in the US Virgin Islands is a business dream that has thankfully come to fruition.”

With services ranging from aircraft management to medical evacuation flights with AeroMD, the Bohlke/MN partnership expands the joint charter fleet to include Falcon 900 series, Gulfstream 100, Citation, King Air 200, Mitsubishi MU-2 and Cessna Caravan aircraft. Before the month's end, MN expects to add a G-150 to its certificate. Both companies are FAA Part 135 certified, offering all N-registered aircraft.

“We are excited to combine forces after decades of working alongside one another in the region,” says Alicia Pineda, MN Aviation general manager. “For our customer base in Puerto Rico, the addition of a locally-based Falcon jet adds significant value. This partnership with Bohlke International Airways will allow us to better serve the millions of residents and visitors who come to the eastern Caribbean every year.”
