AirNet and Michigan-based Kalitta Charters, LLC announced last week that Kalitta has acquired operational assets of the Columbus-based company.

“We are thrilled about the unique opportunities this relationship will create for our industry,” said Doug Kalitta, president, Kalitta Charters. “AirNet’s expertise and reputation are tremendous complements to Kalitta’s relentless commitment to quality and innovation.”

AirNet operates scheduled and on-demand cargo charter services and offers avionic installations and aircraft maintenance.

AirNet has a fleet of Beechcraft Barons and Bombardier Learjets with team members based primarily in Columbus, Ohio, and St. Louis, Missouri. The company offers specialized services for transporting radiopharmaceuticals and nuclear medicines. The company provides aircraft maintenance on all major manufacturers.

Kalitta Charters offers executive charter, air ambulance, and air cargo services as well as aircraft maintenance, servicing, and overhauling. The company operates a fleet of over 35 aircraft, ranging from Learjets to Boeing 737s. In most cases the company can respond to charter requests in as little as 45 minutes, according to a company statement.

AirNet is one of a few carriers granted special permits from the United States Department of Transportation and Transport Canada to provide the highest level of radiopharmaceutical cargo charter service.
