SparkJet Virtual Announces Acquisition And New Flights

sparkFORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, Feb. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — SparkJet Virtual has announced the acquisition of Pacific Blue Virtual during their press conference in Fort Lauderdale on Friday, February 15th, 2013. The acquisition is great for SparkJet since both airlines shared a very similar fleet and business model; the most important factor of the acquisition is that it allows SparkJet to expand to markets they had not been able to serve. With the acquisition SparkJet is planning to introduce about 20 frames, at a rate of two per month and is looking at new focus cities around the country.

“Initially only five aircraft, a JS41, two A320’s and two B738’s will be joining the fleet after being retrofitted with the SparkJet product” said SparkJet CEO Zeke Elias. We are adding new destinations that we were not able to previously serve due to fleet constraints.

The new frequencies being added are as follows:

From KABQ:

Portland International Airport (ICAO: KPDX) Once Daily

General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport (ICAO: KBOS) Twice Daily

Lambert-St Louis International Airport (ICAO: KSTL) Once Daily
