Texas Air Shuttle, a membership-based air travel program, has opened its wait list to prospective members and expects to launch in February, pending approval from the Federal Aviation Administration/Department of Transportation.

The all-you-can-fly air travel membership has headquarters at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth and at Lone Star Executive Airport in Conroe. “The Houston to Dallas-Fort Worth flight is the No. 1 most traveled air route in the country,” said Steve Geldmacher, CEO of Texas Air Shuttle. “Businessmen and women are frustrated with traditional commercial travel, which includes invasive airport screenings, nickel-and-dime fees, overbooked flights, cancellations – you name it. All of these things cost individuals thousands of dollars every year in lost productivity and time. Our method completely eliminates the stresses related to commercial flying. Members can fly as often as they want for one monthly fee and are treated like VIPs in the process.”

Texas Air Shuttle owns, operates and maintains a fleet of Beechcraft King Air 200 aircraft. All aircraft have twin engines and will fly with two pilots for added safety. The veteran-owned company also plans to add jets to its fleet of King Air 200s to expand its route network. Memberships range in price from $899 to $4,900 per month depending on the type of membership selected. Texas Air Shuttle will maintain regularly scheduled air travel routes throughout Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Additional routes will be added as demand grows. Ken Haney, founder and chairman of Texas Air Shuttle, said the company’s goal is to provide a travel option for executives, business owners and super commuters. “Already, we’ve seen tremendous interest in Texas Air Shuttle memberships throughout the business community, including entrepreneurs, executives and companies with more than one location. Their time is valuable and driving a few times a week or traveling by commercial airline simply doesn’t cut it,” Haney said. The company has agreements established with jet fuel providers Sun Coast Resources and World Fuel Services and partnerships with rental car and hotel chains so that its members can enjoy benefits immediately. “Our entire mindset for Texas Air Shuttle is to create business travel the way it was meant to be,” said Geldmacher. “We understand the stresses of commuter and business travel, and we know that we’ve created the perfect air travel program for our members. Book a flight, valet your car, check in and hop on your flight. It’s that simple.”
