An international private jet charter firm has announced the opening of its Bermuda office in Hamilton.

New York-based Star Jets International, Inc, will set up its operation in Melbourne House, on Parliament Street. Marc Bean will lead the operation.

The company will operate as a private jet brokerage firm offering jets for family vacations, business trips, concerts and tours, roadshows, air cargo for art, medical emergencies, aircraft sale and management, and concierge services.

The company is led by industry veteran, CEO Ricky Sitomer.

Mr Bean, head of the Bermuda division for Star Jets, said: “We are excited to have a dedicated office here in Bermuda, in order to provide the highest level of customised, personal service to our current and prospective clients.

“Business persons, millennials involved in the tech space, high net-worth individuals, and groups of friends who all have specific requirements, are some of customers that we cater to.”

Mr Bean, the former leader of the Progressive Labour Party, believes that the island’s reputation as a sophisticated, well-heeled jurisdiction, and its enviable proximity to New York City and the northeast of the US, were factors in the decision to open the Bermuda office.

“Providing 24/7 jet concierge services, we have access to 14,000 international aircraft for our customers to chose from for on-demand charter, or our flagship Jet Card Programme that sells access to the fleet in blocks of 25 flight hours,” Mr Bean said.
