By-the-seat private jet airline Aero is expanding its U.S. and European route network this winter
Aero is adding flights in both the U.S. and Europe for the winter.
In addition to flights from Los Angeles Van Nuys (VNY) to Los Cabos, Aero is adding nonstop flights to the Mexican resort from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
LAX flights will use Atlantic Aviation’s private terminal.
The new route will link Cabo San Lucas (CLS), a new airport for the brand.
The VNY flights will continue to fly into San Jose del Cabo International Airport, providing convenient travel to both sides of Cabo.
From now until December 15, 2022, if you book accommodations at Aspen St. Lodge, which can hold up to 26 guests, you receive 15% off round-trip flights on Aero from Los Angeles, including private charters.
As part of the package, guests will receive an enhanced cocktail reception, complimentary breakfast each morning, on-site private yoga classes, and airport ground transfers.
Aero is also expanding its presence in Europe with two new flights out of London’s Farnborough Airport to Geneva Airport (GVA) and Sion Airport (SIR) in Switzerland.
The first flights depart on December 19.
The new European routes will accompany the existing destinations from London, including Ibiza and Nice.
The expansion comes on the heels of the company’s Series B funding round, which is being used to drive the company’s continued growth.
In August, it announced a $65 million capital raise, $50 million in Series B funding, and $15 million in convertible notes for a total post-money valuation of $300 million.
The funding round was co-led by AlbaCore Capital Group, one of Europe’s leading alternative investment firms, and returning investors Expa and Keyframe Capital, with new investment from Capital One Ventures.
“I am really excited to announce Aero’s Series B raise to further ignite growth and expand into new markets. Aero’s success over the last few years highlights that customers in both the U.S. and Europe have been waiting for the Aero travel experience,” Uma Subramanian, Chief Executive Officer of Aero, said at the time.
Aero principally flies Embraer E135 reconfigured with just 16 seats in a 1×1 layout instead of the typical airline configuration with up to 36 seats.
