USGlobal Airways, a proposed new US-based international airline, has announced its intention to operate transatlantic passenger flights between Stewart International Airport (SWF), located approximately 55 miles north of New York City, and select European countries covered by the US-EU Open Skies Agreement, the company said.
Located in Newburgh, New York, SWF is operated by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and caters to a demographic that resides in New York City, the Mid-Hudson NewYork region, Western Connecticut, Northeastern Pennsylvania, and Northern New Jersey.
SWF boasts the third longest runway in the United States, shares its runway with the US Air Force National Guard, and operates as a general aviation and cargo facility.
USGlobal Airways plans to lease a fleet of B767-300 aircraft which will carry passengers, cargo, and mail from SWF to such possible destinations as London, Paris, Barcelona, Nice, Naples, Athens, Warsaw, Budapest, Prague, St. Petersburg and Tel Aviv.
USGlobal Airways, currently named Baltia Air Lines (OTC Pink:BLTA) and in the process of restructuring and refinancing, will be a new US flag international carrier with the primary objective to operate targeted transatlantic routes covered by the US-EU Open Skies Agreement.
The proposed airline is in negotiation with US government authorities to obtain its Part 121 certification in order to launch commercial flight operations.
