TRENTON, N.J. - Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes officially welcomed Streamline LLC, a subsidiary of Charter Air Transport Inc., to Trenton-Mercer Airport to celebrate the airline’s new passenger service expected to begin April 4, 2011.

“I am proud to welcome our new partner at the Trenton-Mercer Airport,” Hughes said at a press conference at Trenton-Mercer on March 22, where he shared the podium with Mark Cestari, Charter Air’s vice president of marketing, Gordon Spelich, CEO, and Ewing Mayor Bert Steinman.

“I’ve always been a strong advocate for a healthy mix of commercial, corporate, and private aviation. The addition of Streamline would be a very positive development for the Mercer County economy. This new airline would offer the public convenient air travel options close to home.”

Streamline will provide weekday, non-stop, round-trip flights twice per day, from TTN to the Boston-metro area. The aircraft is a 30-seat EMB-120 aircraft operated by Charter Air Transport, Inc.  These turbo-prop aircraft employ state-of-the-art avionics, will be flown by experienced professional flight crews, and feature a high level of passenger comfort on board. The airline also plans to create a station within the Trenton-Mercer Airport terminal where its own employees will provide customer service, maintenance, and support of in-flight operations.

Charter Air Transport, Inc. is a Cleveland-based air service provider
and is part of the larger Business Aircraft Group organization based at Burke Lakefront Airport in Ohio. Currently, Charter Air Transport provides on-demand air services to a variety of collegiate teams, corporate clients, universities and gaming operators, among others.
