Jet Edge International has ranked eighth in Aviation Research Group’s ‘Top US Part 135 Operators’ 2016 mid-year report.
The company flew nearly 9,000 charter hours by the midpoint of the year.
In August, Jet Edge ranked first by more than ten percent when calculating average distance per flight segment, or cycle, on the company’s large-cabin fleet with 1,198 nautical miles per flight segment.
Earlier this year, Jet Edge reached another key milestone by ranking within the top ten domestic charter operators of 2015 by charter hours flown throughout last year. In 2016, the company is on track to move within the top six domestic charter operators by total charter hours flown.
