Desert Jet Expands Charter Fleet, Begins Service from Palm Springs International Airport

July 19, 2009, La Quinta, California — Desert Jet, the desert’s premier on-demand aircraft charter service company, continues to expand its fleet in response to strong customer demand. A Beechcraft King Air B200 has joined Desert Jet’s rapidly growing fleet. Balancing luxury, performance and efficiency, the King Air 200 is the ideal charter aircraft for regional business or pleasure destinations.

“The King Air B200 is a popular and versatile aircraft that is a perfect fit for our clients that want an economical travel solution for those shorter trips, yet want the safety and comfort of a jet powered aircraft,” said Denise Wilson, President of Desert Jet. “With the safety of two turbine engines and the comfort provided by a pressurized cabin, there is no better aircraft in the desert for those short range trips.”

Well suited for both business and leisure, the King Air B200 provides comfortable seating for up to eight passengers, cruise speeds of over 310 mph, and has a range of 1500 miles. The interior features leather club seating, a mini galley area, and an enclosed lavatory. The exceptional short and rough field capabilities of this aircraft make it a great choice for flights to Mexico, backcountry strips, and short runways that jets can’t access that are closer to your final destination. As with all of the Desert Jet fleet, pets are welcomed and treated like a member of the family.

This aircraft joins Desert Jet’s existing fleet consisting of a Citation V and a Citation Encore. The King Air’s ideal location at the Palm Springs Airport will now provide Desert Jet clients with a choice of aircraft available to charter from all three of the desert’s airports.
