Fly Alliance expects its fleet to grow to 30 aircraft by early 2024, according to executives speaking during the National Business Aviation Association conference in Las Vegas.

The flight provider, ranked through June as the 18th-largest North American operator based on fractional and charter flight hours, is adding a pair of Citation Latitudes, a Gulfstream GV and G550, by year’s end.

Its third new Citation XLS Gen2 from Textron is scheduled for delivery at the beginning of next year.

Fly Alliance President Christopher Tasca (pictured right) says continued growth will come via fleet expansion, jet card and fractional programs, and on-demand charter.

“We want to keep it simple for our customers. Our programs are straightforward. We don’t have a dozen different variations,” he says.

“Our customer is a high-net-worth person where time is money. They value responsive customer service. Our clients are not going online and trying to book or source their own flights. They want a provider who takes care of everything for them with no strings or unpleasant surprises,” he says.

Last year, during NBAA, Fly Alliance made its first-ever order of new aircraft, expanding its fractional program, which previously focused on preowned aircraft.

The company was set up in 2019 by Tasca and Kevin Wargo, a former partner with Dumont Aviation.

Its jet card program offers a turboprop option, light, midsize, two super midsize options, and a large cabin pricing tier.

It continues as one of a select group that offers a 24-hour non-peak callout without a surcharge.

Hawaii and Alaska are included in its fixed-rate service area, as well as the Caribbean and Mexico.
