Eos, the all business class airline, introduced in November 2005, is to expand its services to JFK New York from next Sunday 15 April and a total of 32 flights per week will now be available between the two cities.
The additional third flight departs Stansted on Sunday, Monday and Friday at 13:00 and from Kennedy on a Sunday, Thursday and Friday at 22:55, considered to be the busiest days at each airport. On a typical Friday, the most popular day for travel from east to west, Eos will now have departures at 10:30, 13:00 and 18:30.
"We've added our third flights when and where our guests demand them. They've asked for options that complement their busy work and personal lifestyles," said Eos Airlines chief executive officer Jack Williams.
The airline says that its March passenger revenues increased 26% during February to a new high. Whilst a very small operation compared to the frequent New York services offered from Heathrow, Eos does have the credit of being recognised as the most punctual airline serving New York and London for 2006, using figures published by the UK Civil Aviation Authority.
Eos is one of three start-up business class only carriers to New York in the last 18 months from north London airports. It operates Boeing 757 aircraft featuring 48 fully flat seats and an a highly personalised premium service both at the airport and on board.
At Stansted its competitor is Maxjet, which operates daily to JFK with a 100-seat Boeing 767 wide bodied aircraft in a more traditional J class layout, but likewise benefiting from the speedy ground operation that the airport offers to its business class operators.
Both airlines are American-owned.
