FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — SparkJet announced today that VATSIM has made SparkJet a member Virtual Airline, an achievement that many virtual airlines don’t ever achieve. With the certification, SparkJet is now recognized as a top virtual airline operating on an excellent and professional network.
In other news, SparkJet announced that it has officially opened the new crew bases in CYYC and SCEL. “These new bases and operations enable SparkJet to introduce the world with a superior product for a lower cost, bringing joy back to flying” was what SparkJet CEO Zeke Elias said during the press conference. Currently the bases operate with four and two B737-600 aircraft respectively, with plans for further expansion and upgrading if there is enough demand.
SparkJet’s management team has also been traveling back and forth to Sydney, Australia during the past two months and have placed requests with the Australian government for authorization to begin service from YSSY to points around the country. When asked, Zeke Elias stated “We are all ready to begin service, all we need is approval and ferrying of the aircraft which should occur later this week.” In order to support the operation Boeing has leased SparkJet two B747-400′s for service to OMDB, YSSY and RJAA.
SparkJet is still actively working in expanding its operations at SCEL, CYYZ and YSSY. SparkJet is still taking applications for First Officers out of their KABQ or KFLL Hubs or their focus cities in KSFO, KJFK, CYYC and SCEL, interested?
