Linear Air, a provider of point-to-point air taxi service, announced today the launch of its Eclipse E500 flight service in the greater New York City area. The expansion of its fleet in the New York region reaffirms the company’s commitment to offering business and leisure travelers unprecedented access and affordability to private jet travel.

Linear Air’s Eclipse E500 is part of a new class of very light jets (VLJ) poised to redefine air travel. Using less fuel than other light jets, the eco-friendly and efficient, twin engine Eclipse E500 offers jet aircraft performance at an unprecedented lower overall cost. That savings is directly passed on to the Linear Air customer.

“Linear Air’s goals are to provide customers with a high-quality travel experience that is hassle-free, time efficient and cost effective,” said William Herp, president and CEO of Linear Air. “With convenient and personalized service, Linear Air is pleased to offer business and leisure travelers in the greater New York City area a bold new option for air travel.”

In addition to cost-savings, other considerations that make air travel with Linear Air appealing. Linear Air serves 10 times more airports than the traditional commercial airlines serve. By utilizing regional airports, Linear Air can accommodate clients’ air travel needs from locations that are closer to their homes and offices. This saves travelers the time, headache, and expense of commercial airports.

THe flexibility of Linear Air’s air taxi service allows business travelers to land in destinations not served by commercial airlines, creating opportunities to reach remote or multiple destinations in single day trips. Air travel is easily complemented by accessible ground transportation options.

Business travelers benefit from the ability to turn travel time into productive work time by flying in well-appointed comfortable cabins conducive to conducting meetings, while leisure travelers are able to more easily make weekend trips from New York to Nantucket by avoiding the long security lines and other hassles associated with commercial air travel.

Linear Air’s aircraft is based at the White Plains/Westchester County Airport in New York, but will be servicing major and regional airports throughout the tri-state region as well as the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
