DayJet Names First Florida DayPort Locations

Boca Raton, Gainesville, Lakeland, Pensacola and Tallahassee Selected

During the 2006 Florida Aviation Trades Association annual convention, DayJet has announced that Boca Raton, Gainesville, Lakeland, Pensacola and Tallahassee will be the first cities in the nation to experience the economic benefits derived from its new point-to-point, on-demand regional jet service. Selected for their strong business climate and limited transportation infrastructure, these cities will be the first to receive DayJet air transportation facilities, called DayPorts™, which will serve as the “access ramps” to the world’s first “Per-Seat, On-Demand” jet service when it takes flight later this year.

The company is in final negotiations with fixed base operators (FBO) and airports in each of the five cities to operate DayPort facilities. Within 12 months of launch, DayJet expects to open an additional four DayPorts in Florida and 12 more DayPorts across three Southeastern states, connecting communities that today have little or no scheduled air service.

DayJet chose the five Florida cities because each represents a strong and growing local economy and business environment that is underserved by the airline “hub and spoke” system. In two cases, Boca Raton and Lakeland, DayJet will offer air service where no scheduled airline service exists today. In Pensacola, Tallahassee and Gainesville, DayJet “Per-Seat, On-Demand” jet service will round out limited scheduled air service with a complementary regional transportation option.

Together, these five Florida markets are expected to receive a total $94 million annual economic benefit from the arrival of DayJet in their communities within the first three years of operation.
