Farmingdale, New York (PRWEB) September 24, 2010
TALON AIR, New York’s fastest growing full service luxury private jet management and jet charter company, has resumed operating direct flights in to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) in Washington, DC. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has added New York’s Republic Airport (FRG) to the list of Gateway airports under the DCA Access Standard Security Program (DASSP).
“Since 2004 Talon Air has operated flights into DCA under the DCA Access Program. The ability to depart from our home base is very attractive to our clients,” said Jason Sanders, Senior Vice President. “By approving Republic Airport as a DCA portal, the TSA is connecting local Long Island businesses with the Washington, DC community. The first of many flights have already been scheduled.”
The DASSP calls for advanced qualification and background checks of crews, TSA inspection of crew and passengers, and baggage screening, among other requirements. One of the most significant requirements is that an approved and armed law enforcement officer must be on board the private jet during each flight. These law enforcement officers are trained and certified by the TSA. Operators who fly into DCA must arrive from an approved portal airport such as Republic Airport (FRG). The portal airports are spread across the U.S., but many of them are concentrated in the Northeast.
