Alpine Air Express acquired (18-Apr-2022) Suburban Air Freight, a Part 135 regional air cargo carrier based in Omaha Nebraska.
“Alpine operates a growing fleet of more than 50 active aircraft and owns a proprietary Supplemental Type Certificate (“STC”) to convert the Beechcraft 1900D aircraft from passenger to cargo configuration, providing a unique value proposition to its blue-chip customers,” the company said in a press release.
Geoff Gallup and Jay Armstrong will remain with the Company to help transition Suburban into this next chapter and assist with the integration into Alpine.
Michael Dancy, chief executive of Alpine Air, said: “The addition of Suburban and its talented team significantly expands our Company and its market position, enabling us to better serve our new and existing customers.”
Jon Nemo, senior partner at AEI, added: “Growing e-commerce activity, faster delivery requirements and supply chain complexity has increased the demand for large scale, reliable regional air cargo service providers.
“We have invested significantly in Alpine, including this strategic addition of Suburban, to create a leading provider of critical air cargo infrastructure capable of meeting this growing demand.”
