Xtra Airways is a charter airline based in Boise, Idaho.[1] The airline is certificated by the United States FAA to conduct Domestic, Flag, and Supplemental operations and by the Chile DGAC to conduct Domestic operations using Boeing 737 aircraft.

History[edit]

Established in 1987 as Casino Express Airlines; started operations in 1989 using Boeing 737-200 aircraft flying exclusively for the Red Lion Hotel and Casino. Casino Express operated B737 jet service from Elko, Nevada nonstop to many cities in the U.S. Casino Express Airlines operated one Boeing 737-200 jetliner for new start-up airline Tahoe Air which provided scheduled passenger air service from the South Lake Tahoe Airport nonstop to Los Angeles International Airport in southern California and also nonstop to San Jose International Airport in northern California. It quickly expanded its customer base to include sports teams, government agencies, foreign dignitaries, press corps, other gaming properties, and other types of public and private charters. It changed its name to Xtra Airways on December 8, 2005, to better reflect its broader focus. The airline moved its headquarters in June, 2010, to Boise, Idaho.[2]

Destinations[edit]

Xtra Airways operates charters to airports in the contiguous United States, Caribbean, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, and operates flights for a wide variety of clients to myriad locations in the Western Hemisphere.
