MAXjet looking at Shanghai service

MAXjet Airways has applied for
U.S. authority to operate nonstop passenger service between Shanghai,
China and Seattle/Tacoma International Airport, with continuing
same-plane service to Los Angeles.MAXjet proposes to operate this
service daily effective March 25, 2009.

MAXjet’s proposed service to China would be its first transpacific
route. MAXjet would operate the proposed service with Boeing 767-200ER
aircraft already in its fleet. These aircraft are configured with 92
Business Class seats, crew rest facilities and extra lavatories for
long-haul flying. There are no Economy Class seats on the aircraft.

“We want to bring MAXjet’s award-winning combination of low fares and
Business Class comfort to China,” said Bill Stockbridge, CEO. “Our
service would provide significant benefits not only to Seattle and Los
Angeles, but also to Americans looking for a lower-cost option to travel
comfortably across the Pacific.”

MAXjet’s new Shanghai-Seattle service would:

—Link two vital commercial centers with the only nonstop service from
the Pacific Northwest to China. In addition, there are significant
numbers of Chinese-Americans in the Pacific Northwest and California.


—Provide the only same-plane direct service on a U.S.-flag airline
from Los Angeles to Shanghai

—Increase business class capacity between the U.S. and China in an
efficient manner, addressing the shortage of product appropriate for
transpacific corporate travel

—Bring much-needed fare competition to the U.S.-China market

—Provide schedules compatible with other airlines’ low-fare flights
from Seattle to more than 40 points across the United States
