Proposed New Airline Intends to Launch Flights to Popular European Destinations

May 15, 2017 Aviation No Comments Email Email

USGlobal Airways, a proposed new U.S.-based international airline, today announced its intention to operate transatlantic passenger flights between Stewart International Airport and selected European countries covered by the US-EU Open Skies Agreement.

“Our new airline is well-advanced in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and refinancing and hopes to receive U.S. government regulatory approval and certification in the not too distant future in order to serve international routes to and from Stewart that are currently poorly served or underserved,” said Anthony D. Koulouris, CEO and President, USGlobal Airways.

“Today, our shareholders are meeting at Stewart Airport to approve certain key initiatives, including a corporate name change and reverse stock split, that we believe will offer us a clearer pathway to raising sufficient capital and investing in technology, aircraft and people so that USGlobal Airways may become a significant player in the international arena of travel and tourism,” added Mr. Koulouris.

Under prior management, USGlobal Airways (which is currently called Baltia Air Lines, Inc., but is in the process of rebranding) never received U.S. government certification to operate. During 2016, the company underwent significant corporate and operational changes, including new leadership that has made the very significant decision to hub its operation at Stewart International Airport (SWF), approximately 55 miles north of New York City.

Located in Newburgh, N.Y., Orange County, Stewart International Airport is operated by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and caters to a large and affluent demographic that resides in New York City, the Mid-Hudson NewYork region, Western Connecticut, Northeastern Pennsylvania and Northern New Jersey. Stewart International Airport boasts the third longest runway in the United States, shares its runway with the U.S. Air Force National Guard, and operates as a general aviation and cargo facility thanks to its prime location at the crossroads of Interstate Highways 87 and 84.

“USGlobal Airways is continuing its transition, streamlining operational costs and making technology an investment, not a cost,” continued Koulouris. “We have formed strategic business alliances with regional as well as local business partners and influential organizations. We believe these relationships will be important in assisting us in forging additional agreements and partnerships that will have significant and positive economic impact in the Hudson Valley and greater New York Metropolitan area.

“One of our important corporate goals is to spur economic impact and development that will impact the population of approximately 16.5 million people who reside in a 62 mile radius of Stewart International Airport,” concluded Mr. Koulouris.

USGlobal Airways plans to lease a fleet of B767-300 aircraft which will carry passengers, cargo and mail between Stewart International Airport to such possible destinations as London, Paris, Barcelona, Nice, Naples, Athens, Warsaw, Budapest, Prague, St. Petersburg and Tel Aviv.
