SparkJet Virtual introduces Dash8-Q400 to fleet, turns three months!

Recommended Posts

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, May 2nd, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SparkJet announced today the introduction of the Dash8-Q400 on select routes from KJFK and KSFO. The Canadian made aircraft sits 78 passengers and enables SparkJet to serve destinations they previously weren't able to due to fleet restrictions. Zeke Elias, SparkJet's CEO was quoted saying "The Q400 will revolutionize SparkJet and will deliver the SparkJet experience to more customers all over North America". SparkJet is also currently awaiting for VATSIM to accept the partnership. This partnership will benefit crew members because SparkJet will now be recognized as a top virtual airline operating on an excellent and professional network.

The introduction of the Q400 also comes in time for SparkJets third month celebration, a milestone when it comes to Virtual Airlines which further goes to prove that SparkJet is here for the long-run. In the meantime SparkJet is still developing a training center for the crew members to become more knowledgeable about aviation and is working on several more "updates" behind the scenes to bring the crew members and passengers the most amazing in-flight experience ever

SparkJet is still actively working in expanding its operations to SCEL, CYYZ and KMCI and is expecting to get the new schedules on-line within the following weeks. And is still taking applications for First Officers out of their KABQ or KFLL Hubs or their focus cities in KSFO and KJFK, interested?
