Eastjet Virtual Goes West!

Recommended Posts


vSuite 460 Donaldson Rd. Hebron, KY

EastJet Virtual, the up and coming East Coast airline has announced its new route structure, and its a drastic change. "Effective December 10th, EastJet is taking on a whole new market, the West Coast." CEO Shawn Fitts announced at the EastJet ticket counters at Cincinnati/North Kentucky Int'l Airport. "Los Angeles Int'l, San Francisco Int'l and Las Vegas McCarran Int'l are going to be just the first of all new destinations from our Cincinnati and St. Petersburg, Florida hubs." Mr. Fitts added. The new destinations stem from a lease agreement with aircraft manufacturer Boeing for 10 737-700 NexGen aircraft to be delivered in the coming days. In addition to the Boeing aircraft lease, EastJet is also seeking replacement for its CRJ-200 Regional Jets. EastJet has also announced the take over of the C Concourse at CVG. "We have grown to the max on the 3 B Concourse gates." Mr. Fitts was quoted as saying. Mathew Laiter, COO of EastJet, add that "The Concourse C is a major shift in our operations. It opens up many opportunities that allows more flexibility in our options for future service. It also brings a bit more comfort and less hassle to our customers." The C Concourse can only handle the regional fleet EastJet currently uses. "The Mainline aircraft will continue to use the B gates. " Mr. Laiter continued. Delta is slated to be out of the C gates by Jan. 1st, so it is not going to be a quick move. Today's announced expansion brings a whole new set of challenges until C Concourse is available. ___EastJet Virtual, into its 2nd quarter of operations, serves New York (JFK), Boston, Chicago (MDW) and many other destinations from its Cincinnati (CVG) and St. Petersburg (PIE) hubs with Boeing 737-200/300, CRJ-200, and Q-200 series aircraft.
