On Monday, July 17th, Chamblee received its first scheduled air service!!!
Ultimate Air Charters Arrives in Chamblee
Ultimate Air Charters offers once daily service between Chamblee (DeKalb-Peachtree Airport) and Cincinnati and Cleveland, Ohio! Flight UFC 851 departs PDK at 3:45pm and arrives in Cincinnati at 4:45pm. The Atlanta in-bound flight departs Cincinnati at 9:20am and arrives at PDK at 10:20am. What makes this all so special?
As a business traveler, flying a charter flight out of a small airport like PDK saves HOURS of travel time. Think about what time of day you would have to leave your home, or office, in Atlanta to be at Hartsfield Jackson to depart at 3:45pm. You could almost count the ENTIRE afternoon out…between the drive time (Or MARTA) to the airport, check-in, going through TSA security and then to your gate. With Ultimate Air Charter, you can check in as late as 15 minutes before departure!! Board the jet, and you are on your way. Coming from Downtown or Buckhead? You could still take MARTA and arrange for an Uber transfer from the Chamblee MARTA station to the airport, and all in less time than the trip to Hartsfield! WOW!
A business (or leisure traveler) can pick up an Enterprise Rent-a-car right in the Signature Flight Support Lobby, where the flights arrive and depart from.
The company flies the Dornier 328JET, a 30-seat jet with a 2/1 configuration. A nifty jet indeed, also used for corporate jets as well.
This is also a great opportunity for the City of Chamblee to have additional people see and feel what the Chamblee area is like. I had the pleasure of attending the Ribbon Cutting ceremony as Vice President of the Chamblee Chamber of Commerce. It’s exciting that Chamblee has this type of service available to business people in the community and surrounding cities like Brookhaven, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs.
They are looking to add once-daily service from Atlanta to Charlotte in the near future…THAT will be equally as exciting.
