Private Jet Expeditions
was a charter airline
that was part of the Oasis Group
Private Jet was founded as a travel club in 1989 and began operations with Boeing 727
aircraft for charter operations to tourist destinations. It was owned by Apple Vacations and then by the Spanish consortium OASIS. When Oasis took over, the McDonnell Douglas MD-83
was put into service and service was expanded, including scheduled flights. In 1993 it had a scheduled route from Chicago
and on to Miami
. Because of poor load factors the route was abandoned in 1994 and shortly thereafter Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection was sought. The charter operations did not go well and by March 1995 operations were permanently suspended.
