Desert Jet Granted Border Overflight Authority

April 15, 2009, La Quinta, California — Desert Jet, the desert’s leading jet aircraft charter service company, has been granted an overflight permit by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for its fleet of jet aircraft. Desert Jet’s clients can now enjoy the convenience of flying directly into Palm Springs International Airport to clear customs as they return from international locations. Previously, an additional stop near the southern border to clear customs was required before proceeding to Palm Springs, Bermuda Dunes or the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Thermal.

Desert Jet has also been granted overflight authority to proceed directly to Los Angeles International Airport and other airports in the Southern California region.
