Linear Air Launches Air-Taxi Service In DC Corridor

Area Operation Based In Manassas, VA

Linear Air announced Monday the launch of service in the Washington DC-Baltimore area, the first of its kind. The company will base its operations in region at Virginia's Manassas Regional Airport.

Linear Air operates the nation's largest fleet of executive Cessna Grand Caravan turboprops, which offer the flexibility and convenience of private air travel at prices rivaling full coach airline fares. Since 2004, Linear Air has operated the Caravan, in anticipation of adding 30 Eclipse 500 VLJs.

Linear Air’s Washington DC-Baltimore base is at the Next Flight Aviation private terminal at the Manassas Regional Airport, located just 15 miles south of Washington Dulles International Airport -- but, the company notes, without the stress, hassle, crowds and lines.

"There is tremendous pent-up demand for more affordable and accessible short-hop private air service in the Washington, DC-Baltimore metropolitan area," said Ann Moseley, General Manager of Next Flight Aviation. "Linear Air’s Caravans fit this need perfectly."

Linear Air's Caravans are eight-passenger propjet turbine powered aircraft staffed by two pilots, featuring plush leather seats, luxury appointments and onboard complimentary catering.

“With our base at Manassas, we now offer contiguous service from New England all the way down to the Southeast,” said William Herp, President and CEO of Linear Air. “As we’ve grown from our first base in Boston to New York and now Washington DC-Baltimore, we’ve seen tremendous demand for our service among business travelers for day trips, as well as leisure travel to second homes and out of the way resorts like The Greenbrier."

Based in Lexington, MA, Linear Air provides short-hop private air travel to executives and families with personalized customer service, flexibility and convenience at attractive fares. The company operates the largest fleet of executive Cessna Grand Caravan propjets in the US, with aircraft based at Hanscom Field outside Boston, MA; Westchester County Airport in White Plains, NY; Manassas Regional Airport in Manassas, VA and seasonally in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
