Eos Airlines sees transatlantic trade strong in January15 January 2008
Business-class-only airline Eos has experienced a strong recovery in bookings after the holiday season, its chief executive said as he defended a business model that has been questioned since the collapse of rival MAXjet.
Jack Williams told Reuters on Tuesday the airline’s four planes were 70 percent full last week and he expected the trend to continue into late January.
“For us, the holiday period was pretty seasonal, but we’ve seen a pretty good bounce-back since the New Year,” he added. U.S. private equity-owned Eos operates at the top end of the transatlantic business class market, serving clients in the major financial institutions, while MAXjet was at the budget end of business class.
