Airshare Enters South Florida’s Private Jet Market With 54 Aircraft

It’s a tough market to crack, but NFL champ Patrick Mahomes is on board.

Airshare, one of the fastest-growing private aviation companies in the nation, announced today its expansion to the South Florida region. The move will allow Airshare to bring its customizable private aviation programs to the area, which continues to experience a high demand for these services. Airshare will offer fractional ownership programs, jet cards, aircraft management and charter services to customers in the region. Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes is a client. 

“Airshare fits the way South Florida flies,” says John Owen, president and CEO of Airshare. “Strategically, we have been setting the stage for expansion into this region for the last couple years. We recognize the unique needs of business and leisure travelers here and will deliver flexible private travel experiences, while consistently providing best-in-class service.” 

South Florida and the East Coast have been on the company’s radar in recent years. The addition of the Challenger 350 super-midsize aircraft to Airshare’s fractional fleet was a catalyst for the move, as this aircraft can fly up to ten passengers and provide coast-to-coast flight capabilities. The best-selling business jet in its class, the Challenger 350 also will be appealing to South Florida travelers who frequently fly to the Northeast, including New York City. 

Airshare currently operates 54 aircraft in its fleet, featuring both the Challenger 350 and Phenom 300 in its fractional ownership programs, while also managing a broad range of aircraft from turboprops to large cabin jets. Fractional clients can fly up to double the number of hours in the same size share in comparison to its competition in the region. The company will immediately begin sales in Naples, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami, with its footprint extending into Orlando, Tampa/St. Petersburg and Jacksonville.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
