Broome County Executive Jason Garnar announced Monday that Evolution Jets will be landing at the Greater Binghamton Airport.
The private charter jet company based in Texas will provide jet maintenance, aircraft management and jet charter services. The company's president and CEO, Jamie Thomas, says there will be seven jets and more than 20 new jobs. He says they were looking to find a place to call home in the northeast and the Southern Tier was the perfect location.
"We really like to become part of the community," Thomas said. "We're very excited to be here and make this more of an epicenter for private aviation."
The company will be ready for take-off on July 1.
