An eastern North Carolina private jet company is spreading its wings around the world thanks to its recent acquisition.

The parent company of Kinston's flyExclusive is purchasing Sky Night LLC, an owner and operator of Gulfstream aircraft based in Tennessee. Officials say the aircraft will expand its reach to Alaska, Hawaii, Asia, Europe and beyond.

Jim Segrave, the owner of flyExclusive's parent company LGM Enterprises, says he is excited to see what the acquisition will mean for the company.

“Through this alignment and sales agency agreement with flyExclusive, we will capitalize on the opportunity to extend our high quality, safe and reliable point-to-point travel on a global scale,” he explains. “The addition of Gulfstream aircraft is a key milestone in our growth strategy and furthers our commitment to exceeding expectations for unmatched private travel no matter the destination.”

This addition means that flyExclusive has grown into the seventh-largest provider of private aviation in the country. Segrave says the company, which is based in the Global TransPark, now has more than 50 aircraft and more than 300 employees.

“From the beginning, our strategy has been to extend our fleet globally in a way that grows our position as a world leader in private charter,” he says. “Today we begin a new chapter in that journey as we expand our reach to wherever passengers dream of flying.”

flyExclusive’s new aircraft are now available for charter clients. Visit the company's website to learn more.
