June 30, 2017 – Business Air™ announced today a strategic re-direction of its business to better serve the needs of its aircraft charter, management and partial ownership customers. “Given the growth and increasing demands of our charter and management business, we felt the timing was right for us to concentrate the focus of our business,” said Damon Ward, CEO. Business Air’s charter and management business has grown significantly through both fleet expansion and its entry into new geographic markets, including Seattle, San Antonio and Bend. It also has added a partial aircraft ownership program to its suite of services offered.
As a recognition of its focus on charter and management, Business Air also announced today that it has sold its Denton FBO assets to US Aviation Group.
“US Aviation was a natural buyer for our Denton FBO assets,” remarked Gene Buccola, President of Business Air. “US Aviation already operates at the Denton Enterprise Airport, making for an easy transition for our FBO customers. The company is run by a quality management team with a long-term commitment and vision for growing aviation services at KDTO. As a part of our new direction, we will rely on US Aviation to support the fuel and hangar needs of our KDTO-based charter fleet, making this move a strategic one for both companies. We are pleased the two companies have joined forces in this way.”
