Trident supports Volato service expansion to Baltimore
Volato has added Baltimore, Maryland-based services to its network through a partnership with Trident Aircraft who will offer ground and FBO support. It is the company's first northeast US base of operations.
Recently Volato ordered 15 additional HondaJets and launched a pay-by-the-hour charter service.

Atlanta, Georgia-based fractional start up Volato has expanded its service to include Baltimore and the greater Washington, DC area.

Volato is partnering with Trident Aircraft, based in Easton, Maryland, for ground support and FBO services. Trident is a full-service general aviation company that provides jet management, jet charter, aircraft leasing, flight training, aircraft rental, maintenance and hangar services.

"I am extremely excited to be the support provider for Volato's first northeast base of operations. The current private aviation demand is incredible, and I believe it will do very well," says Trident founder and president John Galdieri. "The airspace between Charlotte in North Carolina and Boston is likely the busiest in the nation, so being in the geographic centre of this region is a smart strategic move. The HondaJet is ideally suited to support this region with the capability to reach Florida non-stop out of Baltimore."

This addition adds significant value to owners in Volato's fractional programme, as they will not pay repositioning fees to pick up their aircraft from airports within two hours of Trident's facilities in Easton, Maryland or Baltimore's Martin State airport.

Expanding to the Baltimore D.C. area is the most recent of Volato's milestones since launching the company in September 2021.
