FARMINGDALE, NY – November 18, 2019 – Republic Jet Center, the fastest growing aviation campus at Republic Airport and Prime Jet announced their new innovative travel and pricing solution, New York Express service from Farmingdale. The service promises to solve one of the largest pain points of private aviation: access to New York City.  Prime Jet LLC, is now offering customers the following New York Expresspackages – Fly your New York City Gulfstream Charters with Prime Jet into or out of Republic Jet Center (FRG) at Republic Airport and we will include a private 6 passenger Sikorsky S-76 helicopter transfer from/to downtown Manhattan at a value priced $1,900.  As an alternative, the program can save you $500 cash and provide a complimentary Luxury SUV transfer. You decide what’s most important – your time or your money!

Cheryl Janke, CEO of Prime Jet explains, “Our customers primarily choose to fly private to save time and for its convenience.  With that, we are thrilled to team up with Republic Jet Center to offer this extraordinary luxury service experience and value proposition.  It’s highly frustrating for passengers to not know what kind of ATC delays both inbound and outbound they are going to face when traveling into highly congested airports like Teterboro, New Jersey.  This is an opportunity to provide an option to take away the stress of those unknowns for passengers.  In addition, we also have an opportunity to provide our customers a cost savings.  That’s a huge win-win proposition!”

The Sikorsky S-76 is a dual pilot, Twin Turbine Engine, six to eight passenger executive luxury helicopter that will fly you in style to one of three downtown Manhattan heliports in just 14 minutes from the Republic Jet Center at FRG airport.

 “Working with Cheryl and her team at Prime Jet is incredibly exciting.  At Republic Jet Center, we pride ourselves on a luxury brand service experience and know that helicopters are a fabulous business tool just like private jets.  The accessibility of helicopters in New York City is a real game changer for passengers looking for a stress-free solution to navigating the typical New York airport congestion and higher costs.  Partnering with Prime Jet to share this innovative charter solution is going to meet a tangible need in the industry.” says Jeremy Epperson, President of Republic Jet Center.

The Republic Jet Center aviation campus is currently comprised of two private FBO terminals complete with state-of-the-art services and amenities, with approximately 100,000 sq. ft. of hangar and office space.  Its incredible growth trajectory has been spurred by savvy private jet operators and travelers who want to avoid other New York airports that have highly unpredictable and congested air space, as well as significantly higher fuel, hangar and operating costs.
