Nationally Accredited Aircraft Charter Company Opens at Lakefront Airport in New Orleans

(New Orleans, LA-August 1, 2016) - Omni Air Transport, a leading aircraft management and air charter operator, opened today at the Lakefront Airport in the new Wedell Hangar.

"We are thrilled to expand our services into the New Orleans market. Omni Air Transport has been following the corporate resurgence in this area for a while, and we believe it's time for a private air operator of our size to be based here with dedicated facilities and service. We hope to build a charter base and an aircraft management portfolio that will rival our headquarters in Tulsa," says Jay Taffet, Director of New Orleans Base for Omni Air Transport.

Omni Air Transport is an industry leader in private air with over 33 years experience in aircraft management, air charter and aircraft brokerage services. With headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Omni Air Transport is widely recognized as one of the most reliable, service-oriented and safest private air operators in the industry. With a growing fleet of modern jets capable of carrying up to fourteen passengers over 4,000 miles non-stop, Omni Air Transport can accommodate all types of business, lifestyle and recreational travel, anywhere in the world given its global reach and worldwide operating authority.

"Opening a full-service facility in the New Orleans market is an exciting step for Omni Air Transport. We believe there is tremendous opportunity for area aircraft owners through southern Louisiana and Mississippi to take advantage of our management and charter services to earn revenue on their planes. And we believe there is equal opportunity for area businesses and families to enjoy our premium private air services. We think the New Orleans base is going to be a big add to our company and service model," according to Mike Skow, President of Omni Air Transport.

Omni Air Transport plans to begin adding jets and turbo-props to its managed fleet immediately and be ready to begin scheduling charter trips from New Orleans by early fall. The company is also very active in aircraft acquisition and sales and has already established this service in the Louisiana and Mississippi market.
