Jesse Starkson realized his aviation dreams in 2019 when he acquired a one-plane “flying” business that operated out of Duluth’s Sky Harbor airport and seaplane base.

He was a licensed funeral director and pilot-in-training at the time, with a passion for owning a seaplane and running local air tours for fun seekers visiting Park Point.

Three years later, Starkson and his business partner John Caturia deepened their investment in commercial aviation by leaving Sky Harbor and focusing on another shared passion: fishing.

When the Minnesota fishery opened last year on Lake of the Woods, they arrived in their de Havilland Beaver to kill some walleye. They also met with resort owners, guides and summer cottage dwellers who said they longed for on-demand seaplane service to the Northwest Corner. At the time, ground transportation to the Angle was all but halted by COVID-19 travel restrictions at the Canadian border crossing. Could Starkson and Caturia add flight service to augment the long-haul passenger boat service pioneered by Greg Hennum of Sportsman’s Lodge?

The conversations sparked a lawsuit that met with high demand. Now people are booking round-trip flights to the Northwest Angle from Baudette or Warroad for $350. The 12-minute jump is an alternative to a long boat ride or driving over an hour through Canadian customs to fish the Northwest Angle. The same service was offered to ice fishermen last winter thanks to the ice tracks.

“I really hope they can keep going,” said Forrest Huset, who spent a lifetime of summers on Oak Island and now operates a guide service called Angling Addicts.

As a boy in the late 1990s, Huset said cabin owners and vacationers got used to routine seaplane service, but it dried up. Like Starkson and Caturia, Huset thinks the flights are valued enough to survive the two-year transportation dilemma caused by COVID-19.

“In 15 minutes you can be on your dock,” Huset said. “I have people who are still considering using it.”

Starkson, who also runs an undertaker’s business in Hastings with his wife, Katie, said the enthusiastic response prompted him and Caturia to expand. For 2022, Lake Country Air has added two full-time pilots and has attracted interest from investors who could help them increase their overall capacity.

Already, the company has replaced its 1950s de Havilland Beaver bush plane with a larger, more modern seaplane, a Quest Kodiak 100 with wheels and floats that can carry seven passengers plus gear. Additionally, Lake Country has acquired a wheeled Cessna Grand Caravan EX that can transport nine guests at a time from the Twin Cities and elsewhere to Baudette and Warroad airports.

“We love it there,” Starkson said. “We have our own unique little niche.”

To be clear, Lake Country Air does not have scheduled flights from the south shore of Lake of the Woods to Angle Inlet or Oak Island or Flag Island. Flights, including tours, are on demand regardless of destination with a home base at Fleming Field in South St. Paul. The Brainerd Lakes region is another natural area of ​​interest to the company. But for now, Starkson said, Lake Country Air’s bread and butter will be ferrying people to Lake of the Woods and ferrying them to and from Angle resorts and cabins if they don’t. not stay at one of the lake’s many resorts. South Shore.

The company opened this year’s seaplane season on Monday by ferrying a construction crew from South St. Paul to a resort town in the Angle. If you leave Fleming Field at 6 a.m., you can be on Oak Island or the Northwest Corner Mainland by 7:30 a.m. Have breakfast at 8am and go fishing at 9am. It’s one of the comfort and speed selling points you’ll hear from Starkson or Caturia, both of which enjoy fishing and hunting.

Caturia’s day job is at American Airlines, where he works as a Boeing 737 captain. He said he and Starkson want Lake Country Air to grow, but they’re not tied to any self-imposed schedule. If they were to add an aircraft to their fleet within the next year or two, it would likely be in conjunction with someone who wants shared ownership or full ownership of the equipment that Lake Country Air would deploy and maintain.

Their longest-serving pilot is Luke Thielen, who grew up in Inver Grove Heights and became addicted to flying in his youth when he went on 20- or 30-day hunting trips with his father in the Alaskan bush. During weather delays, he listened to stories told by seaplane pilots.

Thielen, a certified flight instructor, said he met Starkson while giving him flying lessons. They discovered a common interest in the outdoors, and Starkson brought him to work for his fledgling company.

Thielen said the job opened his eyes to Lake of the Woods and he enjoyed giving history lessons to customers as they hovered over the water. “People are surprised that they can have this kind of flying experience without going to Canada or Alaska,” he said.

Aerolíneas Argentinas has announced that it will operate at least six charter flights between Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) and Doha Hamad International Airport (DOH) to transport soccer fans to the World Cup, which will play from November 21 to December 18, 2022. How will these flights take place and what aircraft will Aerolíneas Argentinas use on this new route? Let’s investigate further.

Go to Qatar

Argentina have qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be held in Qatar at the end of this year. The South American country will play in Group C against Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.

Argentina’s fan base is among the most loyal in the world and always fills the stadiums when their national team plays. Aerolíneas Argentinas has found a business opportunity and has announced that it will operate six charter flights to Doha, two services per game, to transport fans to see their team in Qatar.

Additionally, if Argentina passes the group stage, Aerolíneas Argentinas will add more charter flights, the airline said.

The first flight will take place on November 19, departing from Ezeiza at 3:25 p.m. Due to the distance between Buenos Aires and Doha (approximately 8,288 miles or 13,338 kilometers), Aerolíneas Argentinas will operate these charter flights with a stopover at Rome Fiumicino International Airport (FCO). The stopover will last one hour before returning to Doha. Flight time will be around 7 p.m., the airline said.


Aerolíneas Argentinas will operate the remaining flights on November 23, 24, 27 and 28.

Aerolíneas Argentinas will use its Airbus A330-200 fleet to connect Buenos Aires and Doha via Rome. Photo: Getty Images.

Using the A330

To operate these charter flights to Doha, Aerolíneas Argentinas will deploy its long-haul Airbus A330-200 fleet.

These airliners have the capacity to carry 270 passengers in a two-class cabin. There are 24 flat-angle Club Condor seats and 248 standard economy seats.

Aerolíneas Argentinas currently has nine Airbus A330-200s and expects to receive an additional unit later this year.

Pablo Ceriani, CEO of Aerolíneas Argentinas, said:

“This charter service is a great opportunity to generate additional income, and it is also very special because it feeds the passion for Argentine football.”

Long-haul destinations Aerolíneas Argentinas

Currently, Aerolíneas Argentinas operates approximately 56 weekly flights using its long-haul fleet of Airbus A330-200s. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Aerolíneas has not fully restored its long-haul connectivity. According to data provided by Cirium, the Argentine state airline still needs to recover 17.6% of flights operated with the A330-200 in May 2019.


Aerolíneas Argentinas serves six routes with the A330, including one that is not long-haul but has high leisure demand (Buenos Aires-El Calafate).

Here are the routes operated by Aerolíneas:

  1. Buenos Aires-Miami, nine frequencies per week
  2. Buenos Aires-Madrid, seven frequencies per week
  3. Buenos Aires-Cancun, four frequencies per week
  4. Buenos Aires-Punta Cana, three frequencies per week
  5. Buenos Aires-New York, three frequencies per week
  6. Buenos Aires-El Calafate, two frequencies per week.

Are you Argentinian and planning to travel to Qatar? Would you consider using Aerolíneas Argentinas to get to Doha? What do you think of Aerolineas’ service? Let us know in the comments

By the way, go to Mexico!

Drawing on more than three decades of experience in the private aviation industry, Zaher Deir saw an opportunity in the booming post-pandemic charter market for an online platform aimed at revolutionizing business jet charters.

In years past, a broker would usually call or email a few select traders with a client’s requirements, waiting for a call or message with prices. This paradigm began to shift even before the pandemic, as a proliferation of apps saw an increase in short-notice charters.

Deir knew there was vast potential to go further by creating an auction platform with an open and accessible hub to meet real-time charter requests and requirements.

Enter AeroBid, which speeds up the process of booking a charter with a state-of-the-art platform accessible through a smartphone-enabled web portal, and which boasts price transparency and accuracy.

Through the platform, brokers can submit detailed flight requests, including aircraft specifications, destinations and special requests. Operators can view flight requests live and can then bid anonymously, in real time, for charter, allowing brokers to receive accurate and up-to-date offers on their flight specifications.

Notably, users are vetted and pay a subscription, but AeroBid plays no role in charter transactions.

AeroBid however insists that its brokers demonstrate industry accreditation, while operators must upload an Air Operator Certificate (AOC). A critical element here is AeroBid’s ability to identify required documentation, regardless of the member’s regulatory jurisdiction.

“The idea came to me during the lockdown, when I had time to think about how our industry needed to change,” explained Deir, who also owns UK-based Jet Connections, which specializes in the charter, management, sale and acquisition of business jets.

Second Operator Bid Placement Page.

Each AeroBid user enters their company details and uploads their documentation through a personal page. Some elements, including AOCs, remain visible to everyone, but other data remains private to the user.

“A broker looking for a flight enters his client’s detailed requirements into a template – date, time, destination, number of passengers, preferred aircraft type, whether car or helicopter connections are needed, medical needs , same year of manufacture of the aircraft, etc. a private traveler might want,” Deir said.Then the requirement is posted on the AeroBid Marketplace.

Every operator sees all requests, wherever they are in the world. Those able to fly respond with fees and other details, including aircraft type. The broker sees global and transparent offers.

At this point, AeroBid has already saved the broker a lot of time and probably exposed their needs to otherwise unknown or unfamiliar traders. For the latter, the platform offers a global knowledge of charter opportunities.

It also means that brokers will see the cheapest option possible. This, Deir said, is where the professionalism of the broker comes in. “They will present the best options to their client and between them they will select the best one. This means that the lowest price does not necessarily win the auction.

the For traders, there is another extremely valuable AeroBid service. Empty runs are an inevitable consequence of one-way charters and operators try to avoid them by advertising them, usually at very favorable rates. Now, operators can have AeroBid notify them when a flight request arrives based on their aircraft’s location.

Spin

Imagine a London-New York charter where the jet doesn’t need to return to the UK for two or three days. The operator configures AeroBid to notify them when a New York-London demand appears in the market, monetizing what would otherwise have been an empty leg.

“The market is in turmoil,” Deir told Runway Girl Network on April 22, less than three weeks after AeroBid went live.

“We have 75 brokers and ten traders registered and using the platform. I’m really happy to see how busy it is already. Our goal over the next year is to have around 1,000 operators and possibly 4,000 brokers registered. The more users we have, the better the platform will serve everyone.

There are many more choices, but these 6 above cover a lot of ground. So if you’re ready for some post-COVID sun and sea, then hit one above before they’re all booked up this summer.

AIRCRAFT’s charter specialist, Air Charter Service (ACS), has organized more than 20 relief cargo flights to Poland and several more to Moldova carrying tents and medical supplies to help fleeing Ukrainian refugees .

In acts of kindness and support to Ukrainians, the charter broker’s team on the ground not only facilitated smooth flight operations, but also purchased and delivered supplies to various border camps, as well as conducted refugees to other Polish destinations.

Ben Dinsdale, Director of Government and Humanitarian Services at ACS, said: “The stories are terrifying, and we are doing everything we can to make sure we are doing our part in the operation and getting as many humanitarian flights into the surrounding countries where Ukrainian refugees have arrived.

“We expect many more flights over the coming weeks and months as the number of refugees continues to rise. Usually flights arrive in Poland, but we also had several to Chisinau in Moldova, which is a short drive away.

Beyond focusing on charter flights, the company also sought to help individual families its team in Poland met. “Through our charity committee, our employees have raised over £10,000 so far and we’ve put it to good use.”

In one case, the ACS team in Poland rented a van and loaded it with supplies, including diapers, baby food, baby wipes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hygiene products and snacks. for children, and delivered everything directly to the refugee camps, reveals a press release from ACS. .

Then, after discovering that the lack of accommodation and transport was becoming a problem, they hired a minibus and personally transported more than 40 people from 12 families from the camps to the big cities. “Some days they were driving for 15 hours,” Dinsdale adds.

Katie Ivie, head of the company’s charity committee, says the team on the ground have done a great job so far. “But we are trying to do more. We currently have a number of larger projects underway to help families fleeing this conflict. »

ACS has a long history of working with Ukrainian airlines and customers in that country, many of whom have families fleeing conflict or stranded in Ukraine.

“So we are reaching out to do what we can. We are also asking anyone who will listen to donate to the Disaster Emergency Committee, as there is no doubt that millions more refugees will be pouring into Europe to escape the fighting,” the statement added.

TO COMBAT local cross-border bottlenecks, Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport and Chinese carrier SF Express Airlines have launched their first joint air cargo charter service to neighboring Hong Kong, writes Thelma Etim.

A new six-week flight schedule, which started on March 19, delivers supplies to the island city in place of surface movements between the airport and Hong Kong, the Shenzhen Media Group news platform reports on its account. Official Twitter.

“Additionally, many goods are now being transshipped beyond Europe and the United States and other places – via Hong Kong,” the outlet reveals.

“The flights are mainly responsible for transporting some high-value goods and anti-epidemic aid, to reduce the risk of secondary transmission caused by cross-border cargo vehicles in Shenzhen,” he said.

Founded in 2009, SF Express currently operates the largest freighter fleet in China and was the first air express delivery company in the People’s Republic to own B747 freighters. It also operates B767F, B757F and B737F. By July 2020, the size of its freighter fleet had increased to 60 units.

In addition to its Shenzhen airport hub, the Chinese all-cargo airline also has bases in Hangzhou and Beijing.

Inside the world of presidential campaign charters https://yachtchartersflorida.net/inside-the-world-of-presidential-campaign-charters/ Mon, 14 Mar 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://yachtchartersflorida.net/inside-the-world-of-presidential-campaign-charters/ Elections in the United States see some of the most powerful people in the country throw themselves into the campaign trail.

Elections in the United States see some of the most powerful people in the country throw themselves into the campaign trail. The number of stops on this track depends a lot on the candidate. For example, in the last three weeks of the last general election, President Trump made 48 stops in 15 states, while President Biden participated in 23 events in 10 states.

All this trip is not easy to organize. Besides the logistics of managing large groups of people and the security of presidential candidates, their physical movement from place to place must be coordinated with the precision of a symphony orchestra.

Simple Flying caught up with Simon Moore, SVP of Group Charter at Air Partner USA, to find out more about what’s going on in safely transporting presidential hopefuls during the campaign trail. Air Partner is a specialty broker that has been extensively involved in government air charters and has served multiple candidates over the past two presidential cycles.

Within the team, Air Partner has a combined 80 years of experience in political travel logistics, including a veteran former presidential campaign staffer and a former White House travel office manager on his team. . Although there is still time before the next presidential election, midterm elections are looming later this year and transportation planning is already in full swing.

Simon Moore noted that Air Partner expects the bulk of the activity to take place as Election Day approaches. He said,

“We expect the bulk of campaign charters to take place in the last week before Election Day. This is when candidates plan trips to multiple cities per day to maximize exposure to local voters and media.

“We will identify the best-suited operators and teams for each campaign based on location and ability to respond quickly to last-minute requests. Our team will then also have negotiated cost-effective rates and have a good understanding of each candidate’s preferences on aircraft, crews and overall service needs.

What happens in the flight of a future president?

Planning the transport of high-level politicians and their entourages is not an easy task. From the campaign announcement tour, to the primaries, to the national convention, and finally the general election campaign, each leg of the journey requires different aircraft and crew capabilities. The only constant throughout the process is Air Partner, ensuring continuity throughout.

Simon Moore described the crucial role Air Partner plays with campaign teams. He told us,

“Air Partner becomes a close-knit complement to the campaign operations staff. As a liaison between the planning office at headquarters and the forward teams in the field, we ensure that every detail is ironed out and clearly communicated in a timely manner to all parties.

The work for Air Partner begins well before the start of the campaign cycle, as all elements of charter travel must be in place and ready to go in good time. The team begins by exploring the business jet and commercial aircraft market, building relationships with operators in the early voting states of Iowa, South Carolina, New Hampshire and Nevada.

At the same time, Air Partner provides essential advisory services to campaign staff, who – understandably – are pulled in all directions when launching a campaign and have little time or energy to devote to travel arrangements. . As such, Air Partner leverages its industry expertise to ensure the process is as smooth and simple as possible, as Simon explained,


“This includes discussions of aircraft types, costs, aircraft types that can or cannot land at certain often-visited airfields, aircraft types that will need fuel stops, prepare them for obstacles and unavoidable mechanical events.”

Choose planes and people

Over the years, there have been all kinds of aircraft involved in presidential campaigns. Mitt Romney’s MD-83 was once U2’s 360 touring plane, while Vice President Paul Ryan flew in a 42-year-old DC-9. John McCain flew in a 737, while Obama had a larger 757 – as did John Kerry in 2004 and George Bush in 2000. Sarah Palin’s 2008 commute was an E190, while Trump’s Republican rivals in 2016 , Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both chose Cessna Citations.

The choice of aircraft and crew will depend on the missions planned for the campaign. Candidates and their staff, as well as the embedded press corps, need a home away from home, a place that is equally suited to productive work on the road and efficient delivery to their destination. . Moore explained the process of choosing the aircraft and operator for charters, saying:


“We pride ourselves on offering the highest security standards in the industry for all of our customers when it comes to sourcing aircraft and crews. Having had members in the shoes of the campaign team, we ensure that extra steps are taken to ensure that an operator and crew are familiar with the type of client they will be flying.

“We are working on behalf of the campaign to ensure that crew members are made aware of things ranging from specific dietary requirements to how and when to approach and interact with often tired and busy traveling staff – without infringing federal aviation rules. This also includes a smooth transition to travel with the US Secret Service, where appropriate.

Of course, it’s not just planes and people who need to be ready to welcome presidential candidates. Airports need to be thoroughly briefed and prepared, which is another part of the Air Partner service. This ranges from pre-positioning the motorcade, securing phone lines and meeting rooms, to supplying and positioning stairs, belt loaders, supply boats and catering partners. Moore added,

“The campaign team on the ground relies on Air Partner to quickly get up-to-date information on departure and arrival times, coordinate crew exchanges, catering delivery and all the details of the aircraft, especially in the event of a tail number change.

“It is essential for a broker to understand that our flight information sheets are a key part of the campaign staff’s daily schedule sent to the advance team. Our contribution provides the guidance they need for the arrival and departure aspect of the day’s events.

The level of coordination needed to plan these campaign charters is phenomenal. High levels of security mean that everything has to happen in a certain order, so the Secret Service can make sure the area remains secure after they sweep it. Catering must also be implemented thoughtfully – often flights are the only time these busy campaign teams have a chance to eat, and no one wants a ham sandwich every day for six months.

It’s a hidden side of politics that we don’t often see. Our sincere thanks to Air Partner for giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the campaign flight.
