Boutique Air, Inc. is a commuter airline based in San Francisco, California. The airline offers charter services as well as scheduled passenger services subsidized under the Essential Air Service (EAS) program. In June 2019, Forbes ranked Boutique Air as the fastest airline in the U.S.
The company was founded in 2007 by Shawn Simpson, an early employee of Google. It was originally an aviation technology company before it began acquiring a fleet of aircraft in 2012 through its holding company Targaryen LLC. It operated on-demand charters, pilot training, and air patrol services for government sectors using Cessnas before purchasing Pilatus PC-12 aircraft to operate its passenger charter flights.
In 2013 it received commuter air carrier authority from the United States Department of Transportation. Its first scheduled service was operated 2013-2014 between Hawthorne Municipal Airport near Los Angeles and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas. During that time, the company began submitting proposals to provide scheduled service to rural communities and regions under contract as part of the Essential Air Service program, and began its first flights between Clovis Municipal Airport in New Mexico and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in July 2014. The carrier has expanded further in New Mexico to include airports in Carlsbad, Los Alamos, Albuquerque, and Silver City. By the end of 2015, it flew 14 scheduled routes with an Essential Air Service airport destination.
In 2017, Boutique Air began a new car rental company, named Boutique Car. These services are typically used at locations without other car rental options and is being expanded across their route map. As of June 2019, four locations utilize this service (Carlsbad, Massena, Pendleton, Thief River Falls).
