ExcelAire Extends Free Ramp Fee Promotion at Long Island FBO

Ideal Location for New York Arrivals and Tech Stops

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - ExcelAire, one of the nation's leading private jet charter firms, today announced an extension of its grand opening promotion, waiving ramp fees at its world-class private jet terminal at Long Island MacArthur Airport in Islip. The ExcelAire facility offers a full range of services for passengers, crews and owners, including the sale of fuel.

"Since our grand opening, we have waived ramp fees, and it was so well-received that we decided to extend the offer," said Gene Portela, ExcelAire's FBO Manager. "Our free ramp fees are just one way that ExcelAire's FBO stands out as the best facility for aircraft coming to the New York City area or just passing through."

A gateway to the New York City metro area and beyond, the ExcelAire FBO is conveniently located on Long Island, enabling aircraft to avoid the congestion and expense of other New York City airports. Long Island MacArthur Islip airport falls outside New York City's Class B airspace, making departure and arrival delays virtually non existent. At its FBO, ExcelAire can supply quick turn service for aircraft making tech stops, fueling them and getting them on their way faster than any airport in the Northeast.

ExcelAire's private jet terminal is approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as a departure point for travel to Washington Reagan Airport (DCA), making it one of a few gateway airports approved for travel into the nation's capitol. The FBO also offers customs clearance for international arrivals.

Portela added, "We are committed to providing the best prices on fuel and line services to all visiting aircraft. And, we have begun serving larger jets as a refueling and technical stop. Our maintenance professionals, who have an industry-wide reputation for safety and high standards, are available 24/7 to transient aircraft."
