Jet Charters: Linear Air is poised to revolutionize the private airline industry with its two-tiered charter flight service. The on-demand operator is gearing up to make private-jet chartering affordable to flyers nationwide. The firm draws from the best offerings of both private charters and commercial airlines for its business model. A fleet of six modified Cessna Brand Caravan, which comfortably accommodates eight passengers, is used for shared and private charters. The interior of the Caravans is modified to provide more cabin space. Direct from the factory, the luxury-latent turbo-prop seats 12 travelers.

Over the next two years, the progressive company is adding 30 Eclipse 500 jets to its convoy of aircraft. The well-tooled high-performance VLJ will be used for private-charter flights. The twin-engine jet transports four (plus two pilots) and travels nearly twice as fast as the Caravan. It has a range of 1,000 miles and a maximum altitude of 41,000 feet. Since its in-flight operating costs are comparable to the Caravans, Linear's customers receive an upgrade in service without having to pay accompanying higher fees. The economical Eclipse 500 is the most efficient plane in its class as rated by AR/GUS.

Shared charters are currently offered from Washington, DC, to Outer Banks, NC, Teterboro, NJ, to Nantucket, Mass., and Bedford, Mass., to Nantucket. Private charters are available out of NYC (Teterboro), Washington, DC, and the New England area. Private charters to the Caribbean are provided from April 1 to October 31. The company provides on-demand flights to approximately 500 cities.

Many highly regarded publications are chronicling the two-mode chartering service offered by Linear Air, such as Forbes.com, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Boston Globe. The future of the private airline industry is evolving in Concord, Mass., today.
