GlobalX Receives US DOT Approval for 16 Aircraft
Global Crossing Airlines Group, Inc, also known as GlobalX, has received approval from the US Department of Transportation (DOT) for an increase to 16 aircraft from the current authorization of 11 aircraft.
The increased authorization will allow GlobalX to continue the execution of its 2023 business plan to add up to two more A320 passenger aircraft and two A321 freighters later this year, subject to FAA approvals.
This is in addition to one A319 passenger aircraft and one A321 freighter that is being added to the fleet in the next 30 days, bringing the current fleet total to 13 aircraft. The Airbus A319 will be the first of the type for GlobalX.
At present GlobalX operates a fleet of 11 aircraft, broken down as seven Airbus A320s, three Airbus A321s, and one Airbus A321P2F.
“We are pleased to receive this approval from the DOT,” said Ed Wegel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GlobalX. “This increased authorization will allow us to continue to grow our fleet and network, and better serve our customers.”
The second A321 freighter is expected to be delivered to Miami by the end of May and is expected to fly from MIA to cities in Central and South America. The A319 is expected to be delivered in early June.
GlobalX is a leading provider of air cargo and passenger charter services. The Company operates a fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft and is headquartered in Miami, Florida.
