RESTORING THE JOY OF FLYING By: Ashley Bouzianis, St. Croix

Remember when flying was a pleasant experience? Passengers dressed up, arrived shortly before take-off, and enjoyed complimentary food and beverages. Now days, flying commercial feels

like an endless slew of lines through which you are herded. Sometimes the recommended arrival times almost make the convenience of flight obsolete. Not to mention the hundreds of flights that are cancelled or delayed every day, which leave people stranded somewhere between their home and destination. Forget. All. That. Once you have taken a charter flight at your leisure, you will be hard-pressed to ever fly commercial again. Charter flights leave when and where you want. Skip to the front

of the security line. Enjoy privacy and five-star service on-board. Think chilled champagne and exactly the cuisine you crave that day. Get ready to have the red carpet rolled out, exclusively for you and your entourage. At Bohlke International Airways on St. Croix (U.S. Virgin Islands), our family-owned FBO puts charter clientele first. We have built our reputation on our elite service for more than 55 years. Already own a plane? Bohlke has the only 145 repair station in the Caribbean able to service AstraJets, Cessna 400 series and Citation 550 aircraft. Additional service offerings include Astra SPX, G100; King Air 200 series; and PT-6A Hot Sections. Thanks to Limetree Bay Holdings purchase of the former HOVENSA oil refinery (one mile east of St. Croix’s airport), Bohlke is also able to offer some of the most competitively priced fuel in the region. So when you’re ready to stop wasting time and putting your vacation plans at-risk by flying commercial, go charter. But remember, not all charter flight services are created equal. Only one family-owned business in the Caribbean is chosen consis- tently for top-notch service, consistent reliability and meticulously maintained aircraft.

Bohlke International Airways specializes in destinations on the United States east coast, Northern South America and throughout the Caribbean. As a strategic partner of IGY Marinas, we are pleased to serve yacht owners with charter flights between their homes and destinations. Our goal at Bohlke is to restore the joy of flying for our charter clients and their guests.
