Meregrass, IJet offer charters

ADVERTISEMENT

Texas-based Meregrass plans to offer scheduled charter service to five Bahamas destinations from Ft. Lauderdale and one from New York. The companies made the announcement during the introduction of its new Saab 2000 aircraft at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Jim Swieter, founder of IJet Charters, which is providing marketing and reservations for the scheduled charter, said the 30-passenger service will offer all premium-class seating and high-speed travel.

“Pricing will be competitive,” Swieter said. “Our plans are to fly direct scheduled flights, April through August, from Ft. Lauderdale to Marsh Harbour, Grand Bahama, Bimini, Georgetown and North Eleuthera. We also are looking to schedule a non-stop from New York to Marsh Harbour during that same high season.”

The Saab 2000 is a twin-engined high-speed aircraft with three crew and an average cruising speed of 425 mph with a maximum certified ceiling of 31,000 feet and a non-stop range of 1,300 statute miles. It seats 30 passengers in a cabin designed to accommodate 50.
