Meridian Charters Expands to West Coast
Meridian Air Charter, based in Teterboro, N.J., is expanding its operations to the West Coast as part of a long-term plan to serve existing clients better, while developing its charter and aircraft management services in the San Francisco area. The two-phase expansion involves opening California sales offices in San Jose and at Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa. The San Jose office opened in September and the Santa Rose office is scheduled to open in November. In the second phase of its West Coast expansion, Meridian Air Charter (Booth No. 4746) will relocate a Cessna Citation XLS in January from Teterboro to Hayward Executive Airport in Hayward and make it immediately available for charter. “We feel the Northern California market is currently underserved, and to keep pace with our competition we must be present on both coasts,” said Dennis O’Connell, president of Meridian Air Charter.
