Francis Aviation launches new charter flight service

Francis Aviation, a fixed-base operator (FBO) service with locations at both the Las Cruces International Airport and the Santa Teresa International Jetport, has officially launched its new charter flight service.  Francis Aviation is headed by Scott Andre, who was named President of the company in March of this year.  The charter flight service is located in Santa Teresa.

“Francis Aviation is proud to announce the re-launch of our charter services.  We recently purchased two new King Air 350i aircraft,” said Andre.  “These are the latest state-of-the-art aircraft, and we are offering on-demand services for the most reliable option in business, individual and group travel.”

FAIR_067The aircraft comfortably hold nine people and can travel distances up to 1,800 miles without refueling.  Luxurious leather seats and both in-cabin and personal in-flight entertainment systems are standard, and passengers have full control of lighting and climate.

Prior to departure, passengers have the option of pre-ordering from an extensive catering menu and loading up on refreshments provided by the staff at the Francis Aviation terminal in Santa Teresa.

Francis Aviation hosted a grand opening event inside the airport’s hanger in Santa Teresa.  Guests toured the facilities and learned more about the aircraft and the benefits of charter services.

“There is a long list of advantages to flying charter versus commercial.  Most importantly, the client is the decision-maker,” explains Andre.  “They get to decide where to go, when to go, and who they want to take with them.”
