Desert Jet Continues Expansion with New International Jet Charter Service

April 10, 2009, La Quinta, Cailfornia — Desert Jet, the fast-growing jet charter service company serving the Palm Springs desert area, has expanded its operation to include most of the Western Hemisphere (North American, Central America and South America). Flights are now available from all three desert airports to points as far north as Alaska to as far south as the southern tip of South America.

This authorization was granted to Desert Jet by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Desert Jet is the only operator in the Palm Springs desert region authorized to provide this service. Some examples of the destinations now available from the desert include Grand Cayman, Turks and Caicos, St. Johns, St. Maarten, Costa Rica, Belize, as well as destinations throughout Canada and Mexico. “This expansion will now allow Desert Jet to fly our clients to business and leisure destinations not previously served from the desert,” said Denise Wilson, President of Desert Jet. “The old adage ‘you can’t get there from here’ no longer exists”.

Some of the more popular destinations and their flight times include;

Cabo San Lucas, 2 hours
Puerto Vallarta, 2 hours, 30 minutes
Mazanillo, 2 hours, 45 minutes
Ixtapa/Zihuatenejo, 3 hours
Vancouver and Calgary , 2 hours, 45 minutes

This announcement of new international service follows closely behind the news of Desert Jet’s fleet expansion. In addition to the Citation Encore based at Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport, Desert Jet recently added the Citation V to its fleet and began service from the Bermuda Dunes Airport.
