The aircraft is outfitted with a unique 1×1 seating configuration, which will allow large groups unparalleled comfort. The ERJ 145 is ideal for collegiate and professional sports teams, weddings, and other large group charter.

“We are excited to bring on this new product for our customers and fill a need for large group travel,” Cheryl Janke, CEO of Prime Jet stated.

“While this is a new product for Prime Jet, our core values and standards remain the same as with our fleet of Gulfstream aircraft.  Prime Jet remains committed to finding solutions for private air travel and finding a way to ‘Yes’ for our clients,” she continued.
