Magellan ready to take east coast residents to ‘safe havens’
Short hops between lower-risk US vacation destinations like Nantucket, Boston, New York City and The Hamptons have become a preferred solution. Magellan has stepped up to the plate, using the Sikorsky S-76.
There is no need for a headset in the cabin of the S-76.

In response to demand for safe, purely private transportation on specific routings in recent summers, Bostonian charter broker Magellan Jets has partnered with Associated Aircraft Group, the operator of the largest fleet of Sikorsky S-76 helicopters in New York state, to bring back a 10-hour Sikorsky helicopter card, so that more people can have access to solutions to reach their destination safely.

As the northeast US prepares to travel again, short hops between lower-risk vacation destinations like Nantucket, Boston, New York City and The Hamptons have become a preferred solution in the search for quick access to safe havens. Whether travellers are looking for a last-minute summer getaway, an early autumn business trip or a ride over the breathtaking fall foliage of New England, Magellan Jets is their resource to escape from harm while also keeping business moving.

With the card, clients can fly safely aboard the same premier helicopters used by Fortune 100 and heads of state for executive travel. Featuring a spacious cabin with seating for up to five guests, the Sikorsky S-76 also has a well-soundproofed cabin, where headsets are not required. Additionally, clients can travel with peace of mind, as Magellan Jets' expert flight support and enhanced health protocols ensure the safety of their family, loved ones and guests.

As the world rethinks how to travel safely and responsibly, Magellan is enhancing its product portfolio to take current and new customers where they need to go. For travellers looking to add a yacht charter to their Nantucket or Hamptons trip, the broker has partnered with IYC Yachts to complete their personal or business adventure.

A commitment to safety has earned respect and recognition from some of the most prominent organisations in the aviation industry. It arranges flights under Part 135 of the FAA regulations via the Magellan Jets Preferred Network (MJPN), featuring carefully-audited aircraft and flight crews.
