Jet company joins IGY Marinas

Oct 6, 2014 by Guest Writer

IGY Marinas and Bohlke International Airways have signed an IGY Anchor Club partnership agreement, designating the private jet and aircraft charter company as the go-to group for its Caribbean islands region of marina customers.

Based on St. Croix, USVI, Bohlke International has been serving the Caribbean since 1959, and was named the No. 1 FBO in the Caribbean in 2012 and 2013 by ProPilot Magazine.

Bohlke plans and implements any private air travel requirements, including recreational flights, medical emergencies, family matters, yacht supplies, and one-way relocations from yacht tours, charters and excursions. Bohlke has a fleet of jet and turbo props and can also arrange additional air transportation options by helicopter and seaplane through its partners.

“We serve an area where travel logistics can be complicated and happen on a moment’s notice,” said Sam Black, general manager of Bohlke International Airways. “Simply put, we just take care of it and allow our customers to enjoy their time focusing on this beautiful area we have the fortune of calling home.”

For aircraft owners and operators traveling in the Caribbean, St. Croix is a U.S. port of entry. Its Henry E Rohlsen International Airport, where Bohlke is located, offers a 10,000-foot runway with no obstructions in Delta Airspace. Bohlke offers fuel prices of at least $1 per gallon less than the nearby airports, the company said in a news release. It has more than 43,000 square feet of covered hangar space and offers maintenance, aircraft detailing, catering and crew accommodations as well as luxury passenger facilities, concierge service and customs pre-clearance into the United States.
