Announced at Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) Conference in Dubai

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES and RONKONKOMA, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 11, 2012) - ExcelAire, one of the largest private jet charter firms in the nation, today announced a new International Transfer Service designed to assist passengers transferring between long haul airline flights and ExcelAire private jets at John F. Kennedy International and Newark International Airports in the New York metropolitan area. ExcelAire launched the new International Transfer Service at MEBA (Middle East Business Aviation conference), held in Dubai at Al Maktoum International Airport (Dec. 11-13).

The new ExcelAire offering ensures travelers, arriving from the Middle East and Asia on scheduled airlines, a seamless transfer to their ExcelAire private jet. Ongoing travel within the Americas will now be more convenient, efficient and comfortable, which are essential elements of the private jet experience. The ExcelAire team will meet passengers at airline terminals and swiftly transfer them and their baggage to awaiting private jets for their connecting flight. ExcelAire's team includes highly experienced flight crews, cabin attendants, maintenance professionals and charter specialists to help facilitate the needs of international travelers.

"We make it easy for our clients arriving from the Middle East and Asia aboard commercial airlines to take advantage of the comfort and convenience of private jet travel by meeting them at their arriving flight," said David Rimmer, President of ExcelAire. "Many of our customers visit the U.S. for medical care at world renowned facilities such as the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN while others pass through JFK and Newark for business and leisure travel throughout North, Central and South America."

The International Transfer Service team at ExcelAire can arrange and coordinate every detail of private jet trips in the Americas, including flights, catering, ground transportation needs, hotels and more.

Rimmer added, "Of course with a fleet of long range and ultra long range aircraft such as the Global 5000, Gulfstream V and GIV-SP, we are always available for travelers who want to experience the highest levels of comfort and service for their entire journey."

ExcelAire has exhibited at MEBA since 2008. Rimmer and other ExcelAire personnel will be available throughout MEBA 2012, in Booth 597.

According to Rimmer, "MEBA offers an excellent opportunity to see existing customers throughout the region, as well as meet with travelers and aircraft owners with a desire for private jet transportation in the Americas."
