BEDFORD, Mass., Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Waltzing Matilda Aviation LLC (WMA) announced today that it has been granted TSA approval to operate its on-demand jet charter services into Washington DC's Ronald Reagan Airport. The move means significant improvement to convenience for WMA's clients to the DC area, with the ability for future clients to avoid having to arrive at Dulles Airport. Given this select accessibility, WMA believes it will see a further uptick in its business to the DC area, a major destination for Boston-based business travelers.
Continuing its stronger rebound from COVID-19, WMA additionally announced it saw a record level of flight activity in July 2020. WMA CEO John Thomas said: "Our July charter revenues were over three times the level of July 2019, which has further cemented our position as the largest light to mid-sized aircraft jet charter operator based at Bedford. This increase has been partially fueled by a strong resurgence in business-related travel."
WMA is also seeing greater use of its new online booking portal at its website www.wmaviation.org
