GrandView Aviation has opened a base in Bedford, Massachusetts. This is the second of three private jet bases that will open in 2021. GrandView will be operating out of Laurence G. Hanscom Field to private charter services for VIP clients, in addition to its organ transplant transportation services.
GrandView doubled its fleet at the end of 2020 to meet increased charter demand as passengers are flocking to private travel to avoid commercial airline travel. The Phenom 300 light jet is seen as the ideal aircraft for new fliers as it features a nonstop range of up to 2,000 miles, perfect for most travel in North America, and features the latest safety technology. Grandview will meet this need at KBED with a top-of-the-line light jet that outperforms similarly classed aircraft in range, size and storage, and is a comfortable transition for passengers new to private jets.
“We can't wait to start flying private jet clients in the greater Boston area,” COO Jessie Naor says. “With our locations in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest, Boston is the perfect addition to extend our coverage area in the Northeast.” Mindful of COVID risks, GrandView takes the utmost care in protecting its passengers by using electrostatic disinfection technology on all aircraft surfaces, in addition to thorough cleanings between flights, and anticipates that all its flight crewmembers will be vaccinated shortly after opening.
GrandView Aviation's ability to serve another region provides added value to customers who have enrolled in the company's Altitude Miles programme. Members of the programme are able to earn miles on charter flights that can be redeemed for catering, flight credits and other amenities. The programme also offers utilisation of GrandView's flexible cancellation policy and empty leg deals that are available first to its members.
