Eclipse Air Charter establishes NYC office
By Wings Staff
Eclipse Air Charter, with an existing office in Toronto, is expanding its private aircraft charter service business with a new office in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Eclipse’s founder and managing director, Yasmin Alam, built the company around a business model that provides access to range of private jet charter options in what the company describes as simple pay-as-you-go service with no long-term commitment, initial outlay, membership fee or management charges.

Eclipse explains it is capitalizing on access to aircraft worldwide and an ability to book local, transient and empty-leg aircraft charters on a flight-by-flight basis. Alam attributes the company’s growth to emerging industries in Canada and the U.S., its ability to manage complex itineraries with multiple destinations in a single day, and an increased demand in private aircraft used for personal travel.
“Canadian and U.S. economies are intricately linked, so it is not surprising that our rising economies are translating into higher demand in flights between the top U.S. business hubs and those in Canada,” said Alam. “This has necessitated expanding our operations to increase the convenience for existing and new clients.”
The new Eclipse office has opened its doors in the financial hub of Madison Avenue in Manhattan, mirroring the company’s headquarters located on Bay Street in Toronto.
