BizCharters, a new public air charter service based out of DuPage Airport, is changing the way travelers fly. Offering daily commuter service from DuPage Airport or Midway to New York and Washington, D.C., flying BizCharters cuts hours off a traditional commercial airline trip. It’s as simple as driving up, checking in and hopping on.
Unlike commercial air travel, flying BizCharters means avoiding lengthy TSA checkpoint lines, long boarding times and often frustrating taxi and de-planing periods, in addition to the time it takes to walk to and from the gate. In contrast, travelers can check in for a BizCharters flight just 15 minutes prior to departure. Average one way door-to-door time savings from DuPage to New York or Washington, D.C. is three hours, down from over six hours when flying commercial.
“As home to a thriving business community and major Fortune 500 companies, DuPage County’s workforce deserves a better way to fly than commercial air travel,” says Kevin Wallace, president of BizCharters. “The delays and hassles wreak havoc on productivity and waste time. That’s why we are inviting residents to take advantage of a business jet service at an affordable price to experience the convenience and tremendous time savings.”
BizCharters offers service from West Chicago’s DuPage Airport to the New York area through Morristown N.J., just 40 minutes from Midtown Manhattan, and Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport; two of the most heavily traveled routes in the country for business and leisure travelers. Introductory rates for the service are currently on sale for as low as $495 each way.
The BizCharters fleet is comprised of customized 30-seat Embraer 135 regional jets equipped with free high-speed WiFi, comfortable workstations and ample power outlets for charging devices. Flight attendants provide complimentary beverage and snack service. BizCharters is founded by CEO Dan Cretsinger, a charter aviation industry veteran, and operated by the FAA-licensed Planemasters Ltd.
