FLORIDA-based charter operator Verijet plans to expand its service to include points in the Caribbean, the airline announced last week.

The company noted that service to the Caribbean will be available on a limited basis due to government restrictions and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Founded in October 2020 and operating a fleet of Cirrus SF50 Vision jets, Verijet offers short-haul charter flights in the Southeast and parts of the Western United States.

In its first year of operation, the company performed more than 1,200 flights. “We have seen tremendous uptake of our service on the East Coast with 51% returning customers since its launch in 2020, and we expect to see the same in the Caribbean market,” said the CEO of Verijet, Richard Kane.

Verijet’s goal is to provide sustainable travel, and as such, uses the single-engine Vision jet to save more than a ton of CO2 per hour of operation compared to other light jets, according to an article on AINonline.

Last year, in recognition of its efforts to reduce harmful air emissions, Verijet partnered with the 4Air sustainability rating program, according to a report by the Jamaica Observer.

As a result of this partnership, Verijet received a bronze rating signifying 100% carbon neutral operations. The airline saves more than a ton of CO2 per hour of operation of its Vision jets compared to other light jets.

“Efficient and sustainable travel has been a fundamental goal for Verijet. In partnership with 4AIR, we can further reduce the carbon footprint of air travel by purchasing carbon offset credits. Verijet provides the answer for those who want to reduce their carbon footprint, support sustainable aviation, and be able to enjoy guilt-free vacations and business travel,” said Kane.

Using the airline’s artificial intelligence-powered reservation service, Verijet optimizes travel start and end points for the utmost convenience. This automated process, he said, greatly reduces the stress of international travel and allows passengers to focus on the enjoyable elements of travel.
