This week MAXjet Airways received effective authority from the Department of Transportation to commence scheduled international passenger service. Lawrence Fields, FAA Regional Division Manager, presented MAXjet’s Air Carrier Certificate in person at MAXjet’s Washington Dulles Headquarters on August 12, 2005. MAXjet plans to begin charter operations immediately. Scheduled passenger service will begin later this year with flights initially planned between New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and London’s Stansted Airport; other routes from east coast cities to London will follow.
Gary Rogliano, MAXjet’s Chief Executive Officer, is “very proud of the MAXjet team’s efforts.” He commended the FAA and the DOT for their “excellent teamwork” in reaching the goal of MAXjet’s certification.
The airline’s informational Web site, http://www.maxjet.com, is now live. The airline will soon announce scheduled routes, fares and schedules and begin accepting passenger bookings.
