Global Crossing Airlines Group, Inc. (JET: NEO; JET.B: NEO; JETMF: OTCQB) (the “Company” or “GlobalX”) has been approved by the US Department of Transportation for an increase to 16 aircraft from the current authorization of 11 aircraft.

“This increased authorization will allow us to continue the execution of our 2023 business plan to add up to two more A320 passenger aircraft and two A321 freighters later this year, subject to FAA approvals. This is in addition to one A319 passenger aircraft and one A321 freighter that are being added to the fleet in the next 30 days, bringing the current fleet to 12 aircraft,” said Ed Wegel, Chairman and CEO.

The second A321 freighter is expected to be delivered to Miami by the end of May and is expected to fly from MIA to cities in central and South America. The A319 is expected to be delivered in early June.
