We have been hearing for some time that Rectrix, the FBO at Worcester, may be looking to starting commercial service. Here is a quote from an article today in the Cape Cod Times:
“We would also expand from Hyannis to New York, possibly White Plains,” Cawley said. “Worcester to Hyannis in the summer. New Jersey, Martha’s Vineyard to Hyannis. There are a lot of destinations.”
Rectrix, a privately held company based in Concord, has been in business for 10 years. Cawley said the company now employs more than 200 people in the state. In addition to its jet charter services, it provides maintenance and ground handling for major carriers, including JetBlue, Delta and Air Canada, he said.
Cawley said the cost of fuel is a primary reason airlines fail, and Rectrix has a leg up in that respect because it has its own fuel farm in Hyannis.
The company is looking into acquiring Beechcraft King Air twin-engine, turboprop, nine-passenger planes to start its commuter operations.
“We’ll start off with at least three,” Cawley said. “We started the search today.”
