Just In Time For Bowl Season!
North American Airlines, a subsidiary of Global Aero Logistics
Inc., is growing its fleet of charter jets just in time for this
season's college football bowl games. North American has entered
into an agreement with aircraft lessor AerCap Group to take
delivery of its sixth Boeing 767-300ER in December 2008.
"This additional B-767 will be used to grow our commercial and
military charter business," said Jeff Sanborn, Global's Chief
Marketing Officer. "We know there is an annual scramble for air
travel by the 68 bowl teams, bands and their fans. Not only are we
making sure we have enough aircraft available to fly them to their
end zones, but we've enhanced our website to make requesting a
charter quote easy to tackle."
In addition to North American's fleet of B-757 and B-767
aircraft, Global is offering DC-10 and MD-11 aircraft for bowl
charters from its other airline subsidiary, World Airways.
"From 197 seats to 355; from sports drinks and peanuts to beer
and brats; from Honolulu to Miami; North American Airlines and
World Airways can provide the right planes and the right service
for a winning combination," said Sanborn.
North American Airlines and World Airways operated charter
flights to 11 bowl and conference championship games in the
2007-2008 college football season.
Based in Peachtree, GA, Global Aero Logistics is the parent
company of North American Airlines and World Airways. North
American Airlines, founded in 1989, operates passenger charter
flights using B-757 and B-767 aircraft. World Airways, founded in
1948, operates cargo and passenger charter flights using DC-10,
MD-11 and B-747-400 aircraft.
