The building cranes dotting the Denver skyline instantly communicate a city on the rise. The Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation’s monthly report substantiates that impression. Companies are hiring. Consumer confidence is rising. More passengers are flying through Denver International. To meet the needs of current and prospective customers based in the region and traveling there, Executive AirShare today announced it is expanding its first-class service into Denver and surrounding communities within the Rocky Mountains.

“Bringing our private aviation solutions to Denver is a natural decision for us,” says John Owen, Executive AirShare president and CEO. “The Denver market is one of the most desirable destinations in the country and has long been a part of our vision for growth. It was the perfect time to make the move. Everyone who flies with us will benefit from the efficiencies and lower costs associated with the opening of our new Denver base.”

Executive AirShare is one of the nation’s largest fractional aircraft companies. The EAS fleet will be based at XJet Denver at Centennial Airport. It will feature the Embraer Phenom 100 and Phenom 300, the company’s most popular aircraft. Additionally, the new base will be supported by EAS’s industry-leading crewmembers and customer service specialists. EAS currently serves Central U.S. business and leisure customers in Kansas City, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Wichita.

Denver expands the Executive AirShare service footprint within the Central United States. Prior to this announcement, the closest operations base to Colorado residents was located in Wichita, Kansas. Private jet travel solutions in the Denver area – from whole aircraft ownership to charter – are enjoying increased demand. Executive AirShare offers customers the benefits of efficient, reliable new or nearly new aircraft available through the industry’s only day-based program. This delivers customers full access to aircraft when they need it, but they don’t pay when they’re not using it.

“We’ve experienced firsthand the unparalleled level of service Executive AirShare provides,” says Robert Cohen, the Denver-based chairman and CEO of IMA Financial Group. “Since we started together in Kansas nearly 15 years ago, Executive AirShare’s staff and crew have been outstanding partners in handling our travel needs. This welcomed expansion gives other Coloradans an opportunity to discover the advantages EAS gives businesses.”

To support the expansion into Denver, Executive AirShare also announces the addition of Lee Richards, a seasoned sales professional with more than 12 years of experience in the fractional aircraft industry. Richards will serve in the position of sales director, working directly with future customers in the region. He will have offices at XJet Denver. Prior to joining EAS, Richards sold fractional aircraft for Flexjet and Flight Options, while most recently serving as vice president of sales for VistaJet.
