Platinum Airlines was an airline based in Miami, Florida, USA. It operates ACMI (aircraft, crew, maintenance and insurance) services for charter airlines, as well as services for the United States Department of Defense. Its main bases are Miami International Airport and São Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport.[1]

History[edit]

The airline started operations in 1998.[1] In November 2005 it received United States Department of Transportation authority to launch interstate and foreign charter services under ACMI contracts.[2] In September 2006 the airline transferred its Boeing 727-200 to the Brazilian register for use by a planned subsidiary, Platinum Linhas Aéreas, based in Rio de Janeiro. Platinum Airlines itself plans to resume services with two new Boeing 727-200 aircraft. It has 250 employees (as of March 2007).[1]
