ExcelAire Opens New Private Jet Gateway to U.S.

GENEVA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2008) - ExcelAire (www.excelaire.com) today announced that it has opened a new private jet gateway to the U.S., providing international travelers with a wide range of services, including on-site U.S. customs clearance, fuel, maintenance, full concierge services for passengers and crews, along with helicopter service to the New York City metro area. ExcelAire, operator of the largest and best-equipped private jet facility on Long Island, announced these new international services here at EBACE 2008, the European business aviation conference.

"For travelers from Europe, the Middle East and beyond, our private jet terminal at Islip (ISP) is the smart alternative to the other airports in this area that are congested and expensive," said David Rimmer, Executive Vice President, ExcelAire. "And, at Islip, taxi delays and ATC delays are almost unheard of -- making for hassle-free and time-efficient travel. Jets can be at our ramp in five minutes from their wheels touching down, and departures are equally fast and hassle-free."

Rimmer added, "At our FBO, we offer the least expensive fuel in the tri-state area and there are no ramp fees -- making it a smart and cost-effective gateway to the U.S. So, whether passengers are headed to New York City, the Hamptons or other points in North America, ExcelAire's facility in Islip is an excellent choice."

ExcelAire's new helicopter service is offered in association with HeliFlite, which operates cabin-class Bell and Sikorsky helicopters.

A choice for all seasons, deicing and hangar space are also available for aircraft using ExcelAire's services.

During EBACE, ExcelAire's staff is available at booth 723 for further discussion on its new international services, as well as its diverse fleet of aircraft, which includes a Gulfstream GV, G450, five Gulfstream GIIIs, three Embraer Legacy 600s, a Lear 55 and a Eurocopter Dauphin.
