SparkJet Virtual begins ferrying new aircraft, announces new Focus Cities!

 

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, March 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SparkJet's CEO Zeke Elias announced yesterday in an email to the employees that SparkJet had decided on new focus cities and had started the ferrying of aircraft to the airline current hubs. The new focus cities are strategically located and enable SparkJet to reach millions of new potential consumers, initially the first base to open will be Kansas City International Airport, Kansas (ICAO: KMCI) and will have a B738/B772 pilot and Flight Attendant base, the next move will be to open two international focus cities, one in Calgary International Airport, Alberta, Canada (ICAO:CYYC) and one in Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport in Santiago, Chile. "We have use our connections and knowledge of the South American market to understand what the consumer wants and needs, so we decided the best business plan would be rolling out a low-cost, full service model with McDonnell Douglas MD-80's and serve domestic and international destinations" said Zeke Elias about the new focus city in Chile.

 

The last new focus cities SparkJet will open is a base in Faaa International Airport in Faaa, Tahiti (ICAO:NTAA) which will open the door to the Asia and South Pacific market and will enable the crews to enjoy "Paradise".

 

With the introduction of the new Focus Cities, SparkJet also announced the purchase of four B777-200LR's from Boeing which will be coming on-line in the following weeks, "The 777's allow us to expand to markets that the B763 did not enable us to, like Asia, the Middle East and Oceania said Zeke Elias in the email to the employees.

 

Finally SparkJet began ferrying two ERJ135LR's and four ERJ170LR's to both the Albuquerque International Airport (ICAO: KABQ) and Fort Lauderdale International Airport (ICAO: KFLL) hubs to replace the JS41's and ERJ170's. Sparkjet believes this strategy will enable them to further reduce costs and give the passenger a more modern and relaxed flying experience.
